Coffee 101

Brew The Perfect Cup:

A major component of great tasting coffee is a having a quality water source. Filtered or reverse osmosis water has fewer impurities than that of standard tap water which will result in a better overall coffee flavour. But to make that cup of coffee you will first need to boil the water and let it cool to 196 degrees Fahrenheit or 91 degrees Celsius. Next comes the grind type. For drip coffee you will want to use a regular or fine grind. However, If the grind is too fine, the water will drain slower and will cause the filter to overflow. For a French Press you will want to use a coarse grind to prevent the coffee grounds from passing through the press. For espresso, you will want to use a very fine grind of coffee to get maximum extraction from the grounds. In most cases, we recommend using approximately 2 Tbsp. of ground coffee for every 6oz of cold water or 55g for every liter. This will create a relatively strong brew that will showcase the unique flavors of our specialty coffees appropriately.

Storage Instructions:

Once opened, re-close the bag and store in a cool dry place to maintain freshness. Avoid refrigeration wherever possible as ground coffee will absorb any odours that may be present. The last thing we want is for your next cup of coffee to have a hint of sour milk.

Why Arabica Beans?

Arabica beans are considered to produce a better and more desirable coffee than the other major commercially grown coffee species. This is why we only use the highest grades of 100% Arabica beans.
