Thrive Farmers have some excellent brewing videos. Watch our friends demonstrate how utilizing the right combination of water, time, grind and equipment will help you achieve the best results with your EÔTÉ COFFEE.
BEFORE YOU BREW
Start Clean. The cleanliness of your coffee pot affects the taste of your coffee, so make sure it is clean.
Grind Your Own Coffee. There are two kinds of grinders: Blade and Burr. The Burr grinder is strongly preferred. Grind your beans right before brewing. This maximizes flavor.
Prepare Your Coffee Filter. For optimal taste, use white (oxygen bleached) filters for brewing your cup. Unbleached filters can give a strong paper or cardboard flavor to coffee. Rinsing the filter first with hot water can help to eliminate possible paper taste.
Use the Correct Ratio. The right ratio of coffee to water is the secret to full bodied, good tasting coffee. Generally, the recommended ratio is 1 oz of coffee to 16 oz of water (or 1g of coffee to 16g water).
Enjoy Your Coffee Immediately. A warmed cup holds the temperature longer or use an insulated cup.
Your Garden Loves Coffee, too! Your coffee grounds are rich in nitrogen, so mix them into the soil, or spread them out as a snail barrier, or mix with a bucket of water and steep to make a liquid fertilizer for potted plants.
