In order to make sure you are brewing the perfect cup,
here are several things to keep in mind:
- First, fresh roasted coffee is always the best when consumed within 2 to 4 days after it has been roasted.
- There are many theories as to how to store your coffee once it arrives at your home. Usually a cool dry place is acceptable (not your refrigerator). The freezer is acceptable, making sure you wrap the beans tightly and use them as soon as they are taken out of the freezer.
- Filtered water is preferred for brewing your coffee, but please do not use distilled water as it can affect the flavor.
- When brewing your Buna Bean Coffee, the size of the grind and the brewing equipment you are using will make a difference in the amount you will use.
- In general, a standard cup of coffee is considered six ounces, which uses 1 to 2 tablespoons of freshly ground coffee. A general rule of thumb for the proper grind can be followed by the examples below:
- Coffee Press : Coarse grind
- Drip brewer: Medium grind
- Cone filter: Fine grind
- Espresso: Very fine grind
