3 Top Bean & Ground Coffee Brewing Tips

Remember, coffee is personal and each coffee has its own personality so only by tweaking things will you find that perfect cuppa. So for the first 2-3 brews of any new coffee, we'd definitely recommend tweaking brew time (and grind size if you’ve bought whole bean) so you can pinpoint which 'brew recipe' creates the perfect cup for your taste. Here are 3 top brew guides tips to get you going:

If your coffee tastes too acidic then brew longer (or grind finer if you’ve ordered beans).

If your coffee is too bitter then brew faster (or grind coarser) and don’t leave coffee stewing in your brewer.

Only change 1 thing each brew though, to help you identify which variable to tweak in your pursuit of coffee perfection!
