the daily grind
brewing coffee is fun.
Well, it can be if you have the right stuff. Like Chuck Yeager, only different. Let us help you out. We will show you how to make a great cup of DOMA coffee at home using several different brewing methods.
coffee to water brewing ratio
We use a 1:16 Coffee Brew Ratio, which means for every 1 part of coffee there’s 16 parts water, e.g., 40 grams to 640 grams or 2 tablespoons to 6 fluid ounces.
Good water equals good coffee, so be sure to use filtered or bottled water for brewing. Brew with water that’s 205°F to 208°F for light to medium roasted coffees and 195°F to 200°F for darker roasted coffees.
Store your coffee at room temperature away from any source of light, and be sure to use your coffee within two weeks of its roast date. Rinse your paper filters before brewing to avoid any papery flavors in your coffee. Check out the brewing guides below for more information.
weight vs. volume
Weight is always constant while volume will change depending on a myriad of factors such as roast level and the size of your grind. We recommend the use of a digital scale so you can use a weight based unit of measurement, such as grams, to have a repeatable brewing experience.
Having a grinder that produces a consistent grind size is pivotal for great coffee, so be sure to use a conical or flat set of burrs. Grinding fresh for each batch of coffee will produce the best tasting results.
