BREWING COFFEE IS FUN

Well, it can be if you have the right stuff. Like Chuck Yeager, only different. Let us help you out. We’ll show you how to make a great cup of DOMA coffee at home using several different brewing methods.

COFFEE TO WATER BREWING RATIO

We use a 1:16 Coffee Brew Ratio, which means for every 1 part of coffee there’s 16 parts water. (e.g., 40 grams to 640 grams or 2 tablespoons to 6 fluid ounces.)

WATER

Good water equals good coffee, so be sure to use filtered or bottled water for brewing. Brew with water that’s 30 seconds off boil for light- to medium-roasted coffees, and 1 minute off boil for darker roasted coffees.

TIPS

Store your coffee at room temperature away from any source of light, and be sure to use your coffee within two weeks of its roast date. Rinse your paper filters before brewing to avoid any papery flavors in your coffee.

WEIGHT VS VOLUME

Weight is always constant, while volume will change depending on factors such as roast level and the size of your grind. We recommend the use of a digital scale so you can use a weight-based unit of measurement, such as grams, to have a repeatable brewing experience.

GRINDING

Having a grinder that produces a consistent grind size is pivotal for great coffee, so be sure to use a conical or flat set of burrs. Grinding fresh for each batch of coffee will produce the best tasting results.
