Notice: Do not
use paper filters. Paper filters do not only filter out the ground coffee but also
the oils and greases. They make up an important part of a good coffee (the so called "crema"
consists of these oils).
Again, buy and store the whole beans and grind the coffee yourself.
For preparation use either a french press
or a coarse metal filter (I for myself use one for tea).
- Grind to a very coarse degree only. Use a burr mill (blog article):
- Do not user boiling water, it kills the taste. Use a temperature of about 92-94 degress celsius.
- Use about 14 grams of coffee for 250 mililiter of water (or 54 gramms for 1 liter).
- Brew for 3-4 minutes, then filter or press down (french press).
If the coffee tastes to bitter (has to much acid) buy another kind of coffee, perhaps from another region.
The coffees from different areas differ greatly in taste.
