Brew Ratios

 

Drip

Many customers take our coffee home and brew in a simple home drip coffee pot. While temperature control is often an issue with home pots, here are a few constants that can get you started. Feel free to adjust from here to get the pot of coffee you love to drink.

Each method below assumes an eight ounce cup of coffee, add a little bit more water if your pot tends to let out a bit of steam.

If you find your coffee too strong, coarsen up your grind; too weak, make your grind more fine. We suggest a conical burr grinder with incremental grind size adjustments.

By volume, per cup:

  • (2) tablespoons of medium-ground coffee
  • (8) ounces of clean, distilled water
  • multiply by cups of coffee desired

By weight, per cup:

  • (12) grams of medium-ground coffee
  • (238) grams of clean, distilled water
  • multiply by cups of coffee desired

Pour Over / Chemex

For a delicious cup of joe with perfect extraction, our preferred method is a pour-over or Chemex brew. A pour-over allows the most control over grind, temperature, saturation, and extraction.

By volume, per cup:

  • (5) tablespoons of medium-ground coffee
  • (12) ounces of clean, distilled water

By weight, per cup:

  • (26) grams of medium-ground coffee
  • (442) grams of clean, distilled water

Depending on volume, you can adjust this recipe to accommodate a different size. This assumes a brew ratio of 1:17, or (1) gram of coffee for every (17) grams of water. You can use this as a starting point to adjust your grind.

 

  • (21) grams coffee, (360) grams water – Regular cup of coffee on a Hario v60
  • (30) grams coffee, (500) grams water – Large cup of coffee on a small Chemex
  • (50) grams coffee, (850) grams water – Two regular cups of coffee on a large Chemex

French Press

A French Press is one of the easiest and least expensive manual brew methods, and super easy with your favorite Rockabilly roast.

By volume, per 34oz press:

  • (8-10) tablespoons of medium-ground coffee
  • (32) ounces of clean, distilled water

By weight, per 34 oz press:

  • (54) grams of medium-ground coffee
  • (950) grams of clean, distilled water
