COFFEE BREWING TECHNIQUES

EVERYONE HAS THEIR OWN UNIQUE STYLE AND TASTE WHEN THEY MAKE COFFEE

Yes, you can say that Baristas and other people that work with coffee are “experts” and you’ll be right.

It takes time to learn how water temperature, grind size, water pressure, filter type, and a bunch of other variables affect HOW a single cup of coffee turns out.

But there’s only one person who drinks YOUR coffee:

YOU!

And this means YOU have your own way of making it, YOU like it to taste a certain way, and YOU are the one that get’s to enjoy it.

So don’t be worried about getting dirty looks at your local Café.  You’re free to take the barista’s advice or ignore it. They have THEIR way of doing things and you have YOURS.

WHAT WILL YOU FIND ON THIS PAGE?

I’ve created this page to show you how other people make their coffees.  Some of them are G Coffee Team members, others are G Coffee Aficionados.  You might find that there’s some genius to their madness and decide to give their method a try.

All the people who generously made videos have two things in common:

  1. They’re proud to share how to make coffee in their own style.
  2. They’re OK with admitting that they’ve got a severe coffee drinking addiction.

With that being said, let us know if we’re missing any methods or techniques for brewing great coffee.  Feedback is always welcome – whether you love it or hate it.

AEROPRESS

The Aeropress is a revolutionary coffee brewer.  It's compact, rugged, consistent, and relatively affordable.  It was created in 2007, and since then skyrocketed in popularity!  It uses paper filters (which is slightly inconvenient) or you can pimp it out with a Prismo.

CHEMEX

A pour-over method, which means that the water passes through a bed of coffee and a filter, normally made out of paper. In contrast to say a French Press, the Chemex will give you a remarkably clean cup of coffee.

FRENCH PRESS

Definitely found in every grandmother's cupboard is the beautifully simple French Press. It's very simple and elegant to be used for coffee, tea, and also for frothing milk.  The coarsest grind is used here because the filter is made of metal and has large holes (relative to paper).  Because of these large holes, expect to get small bits of coffee in your cup.

HARIO V60

Probably the most popular pour-over device for coffee worldwide.  Hario has been producing these drippers in different sizes & materials since the 1950s, so there are countless accessories.  They pretty much work the same as the Chemex, except that their single layer of paper filter leaves more intensity to the drink.

PRISMO

As an accessory for the Aeropress, the Fellow Prismo has literally turned the brewing process on it's head!  The metal micro filter and ketchup bottle style nozzle increase the amount resistance to the water.  This allows for the water and coffee to sit comfortably in the bottom of the device and the user can then just pop in the plug, push it down, and voila!

MOKA POT

Made for stove tops, the Moka Pot is the closest thing you've get to an Espresso at home without an espresso machine.  Because the coffee is brewed with pressurized hot water, it comes out fairly dense.  It brews in a way that concentrates the coffee and creates a very strong flavored cup - much stronger than any other brewing methods except for the expresso machine.

I watch their eyes on the second sip and 99% of the time they become Espresso Tonic converts.

No – this drink is very specific and not everyone is going to raise their hand to have one.

Originally created in California by Dave Asprey – Bullet-Proof Coffee was created to reduce hunger, increase energy, and assist in thought clarity.
