Best Coffee Brewing Methods
Get the best results using our coffee following the instructions from SCA.
SCAA, the Specialty Coffee Association of America, has come out with their golden ratio, which is approximately. 1:18. So, therefore they recommend 55 grams of coffee for 1000 ml (grams) of water
Brewing Best Practices
Coffee-to-Water Ratio: To achieve the Golden Cup Standard, the recommended coffee-to-water ratio is 55 g/L ± 10%.
Coffee Preparation Temperature: To achieve the Golden Cup Standard, water temperature, at the point of contact with coffee, is recommended to fall between 200°F ± 5° (93.0°C ± 3°).
Elements & Device
- Water: valid when brewing water meets SCA water quality standard
- Ratio of Coffee-to-Water (55 g/L ± 10%)
- Grind/particle size distribution: matches the time of coffee-to-water contact
- Time of Coffee-to-water Contact: 1-4 minutes Fine, 4-6 minutes Drip, 6-8 minutes Coarse
- Temperature: 200°F ± 5° (93.0°C ± 3°)
- Turbulence (mixing action of water flowing through & around the coffee particles to achieve a uniform extraction of soluble material)
Filter media (least affect to brew flavor, body, time of contact & sediment less than 75 milligrams per 100 milliliters)
