New Year, New Gear - Tips & Tricks
We hope your holidays were filled with joy, warmth, and maybe a sprinkle of brewing magic! 🎁✨ Whether you unwrapped new gear or decided to gift yourself a brewing treat, we're here to make sure you get the most out of your experience.
Unlock the full potential of your iconic Hario V-60 pour-over brewer by perfecting the art of the gentle spiral pour. Achieve an even, flat brew bed by focusing on a smooth, circular motion. Say goodbye to uneven surfaces and hello to a brew that maximizes sweetness and balance. Your next pour-over will be a masterpiece!
The French Press, a true workhorse of manual brewing, deserves a moment of attention. After pouring in your brew water, take a second to skim off any loose particles on the surface. This simple step ensures an even extraction, enhancing the flavor profile of your brew. Your French Press will thank you with a richer, more robust cup.
Have you considered experimenting with stainless steel filters? Metal filters allow the natural oils from the coffee to enrich your final cup, while paper filters absorb them. It's a matter of personal preference, so why not embark on an AeroPress adventure and find your perfect filter fit?
Elegance meets functionality with the Chemex, a visually striking manual brewer. Optimize your brewing experience by aiming for larger batches. The larger brew funnel benefits from a deeper bed of ground coffee, resulting in a sweet and balanced extraction. While you could brew smaller batches, the Chemex truly shines when creating larger volumes of your favorite brew.
We hope you found these tips & tricks helpful. Here's to a year filled with perfect brews and delightful sips!
