Quartermaine's Pillars of Coffee Brewing Wisdom
  • Start with your favorite freshly roasted coffee beans.

  • Use filtered or bottled water for the best coffee flavor. Water makes up 99% of a cup of coffee. Don't use distilled water because distilled water has much less oxygen in it. Oxygen in the water helps give your coffee life (just like carbonation does with club soda).

  • Use enough coffee! We recommend using two (2) level measuring tablespoons of ground coffee for every five (5) ounces of hot water.

  • Check your grind. Drip coffee makes should take between four and five minutes to drip through, and press pots should be easy to plunge.

  • Freshly brewed coffee tastes best, so only make as much as you can drink in twenty minutes. After that, the flavor deteriorates rapidly.

  • Don't reheat , as old coffee never tastes good. Brew a fresh pot.
