Our Guide to the Perfect Cup 🌱☕

Our Guide to the Perfect Cup 🌱☕

Feb 08, 2024

Today, we are thrilled to share a brewing guide that will elevate your coffee game. With Lassgard Kaffe's exceptional beans in hand, let's start brewing the perfect cup!

What you need:

  • Lassgard Coffee 
  • Water
  • Your favorite brewing method (we'll explore a few options)
  • A grinder if using whole beans
  • A scale
  • A kettle

Step 1: Choose your beans Start with the heart of your coffee – the beans. Lassgard Kaffe offers a delightful range. Choose one that suits your taste: Medium Roast for a lighter, softer coffee with notes of orange and dulce de leche. Dark Roast for an intense flavor of chocolate and orange.

Step 2: Measure your coffee Use a scale to measure your coffee beans. A standard ratio is 8:100 (8 grams of coffee to 100 grams of water). Adjust to taste. Grind your beans just before brewing to preserve their flavor. For pour-over methods, a medium-coarse grind works well.

Step 3: Boil and prepare Boil the water and let it cool for about 30 seconds from boiling to reach approximately 200°F (93°C). Preheat your brewing equipment – whether it's a Moccamaster, Chemex, V60, AeroPress, or French press – and rinse the filter to remove any paper taste.

Step 4: The Bloom Place your freshly ground coffee in the filter, creating a small well in the center. Pour just enough water to saturate the grounds evenly. This is called the bloom. Wait for 30 seconds as the coffee "blooms" and releases gases.

Step 5: The Pour Now, slowly and steadily pour the remaining hot water over the coffee grounds. Maintain the water level about an inch from the top to ensure even extraction.

Step 6: Timing matters Your total brewing time will vary depending on the method, but a good rule of thumb is around 3-4 minutes. Adjust according to your taste preferences. When your coffee is ready, remove the filter and grounds.

Step 7: Sip and enjoy Pour your brewed coffee into your favorite cup or mug. Take a moment to inhale the enticing aroma. Then, sip slowly and savor the rich flavors and nuanced tones that Lassgard Kaffe brings to life.

Remember, coffee brewing is as much an art as it is a science. Feel free to experiment, adjust ratios, and explore different techniques to find your perfect cup.
