Our coffees are quite versatile in the ways you can brew them. From Espresso machines to the Indian Filter, you can get them ground to perfection for your favourite brew method. Pick a brewing method that best highlights the flavours you want in your cup - dark chocolate, brightness and acidty or a caffeine type hit. We have recommended a grind size (we use a Mahlkonig VTA6ST) but remember, this is our take on our coffees alone.
The French Press coffee is a bit heavy but has its own charm. Best to pour it out of the coffee pot right after extraction to make sure the coffee doesn’t go bitter. 4 minutes tops! Takes about 7-8 grams of coffee for about 200ml of water.
Indian filter coffee
The most prevalent coffee makers in the country. Everyone has had one. A fairly simple process best done with a medium-fine grind to allow for that deep filter coffee flavour.
Made by the Kalita family that has been making coffee equipment since the 1950s. Works similar to the V60s - some say more controlled - makes for a very crisp, clean cup of coffee.
Drip Coffee Machine
[Medium or Medium-fine grind]
The drip machine is a no hassle, automatic brewing still makes it the go-to choice for a quick caffeine fix.
For best results use about 2-3 table spoons of coffee for about 200ml of water.
Our irreplaceable travel companion. From field visits to a cousin's wedding - it is taken everywhere. The jury is out on whether to brew the regular or inverted method.
It makes for a nice strong cup of coffee. Best with a medium grind. Too fine and the moka pot could explode. True story!
Our favourite summer time brew. 1:10 -1:16 coffee to water, 12-16 hours of steeping in the fridge later. A smooth cold one with both a soothing and deceptively rich taste. Very cool!
The V60, or Vector 60, named so because of the 60 degree cone that forms the main chamber. A medium grind with a slow pour leads to a well balanced and clean cup. Comes in ceramic, plastic and metal and a really nice copper.
You can also get the ROK press if you so fancy, or the espresso maker or the siphon and the Chemex, and then there is the laundry list of Kickstarter projects that just make coffee brewing such an experience. There is also the rarely done, coffee brewing without equipment method, but lets just leave that for an in-case-of-emergency type situation.
