Manual Drip

Often called Melitta, a manual drop produces a consistent fine brew. The method is quick and the complex coffee flavours are brought out.

Auto Drip

There are basically two types of auto drip makers: cone-shaped and flat-bottomed filters. The cone shaped filter method is basically the same as the manual method, except it is controlled electronically. We have found that the cone shaped method calls for a finer grind and gives better body than the flat bottom.

French Press (sometimes called a Bodum)

Uses a cylindrical glass carafe with a stainless steel mesh filter and separates the grounds from the water, which puts the grounds at the bottom and the strained coffee above the filter. This method will leave a little sediment that passes through the filter and is suitable for the darker roasted coffees. Be sure to preheat your plunger pot first with hot water as this method brews a little cooler.

Tips and tricks:

  1. Preheat plunger and pot with hot water.
  2. Add one tablespoon of grounds for every six ounces of water.
  3. Pour in water (just off the boil) and stir grounds.
  4. Set plunger on top of cylinder and steep for about 4 minutes.
  5. Press plunger down slowly. If plunger is hard to push down, the grind is too fine.
  6. Allow to sit for about 30 seconds before pouring, then sit back and enjoy.
