Hi, Jon here, Harvey’s dad.
He asked me to create an online presentation for you, so you can now view my personal top tips about making the perfect cup of coffee.
In the presentation I share:
- 5 Ways to dramatically improve your coffee
- How storage can affect your coffee
- What to look for in a grinder
- How to brew your coffee
- Different types of coffee and what they mean
- Why water is important
It’s so easy to make coffee taste way way better at home when you know how so I’m excited to pass on our tips that we’ve learnt from the UK’s top coffee baristas. I hope you enjoy it.
Please watch it and let me know what you think.
Many thanks for the video offering an insight to achieve great coffee but…… if you have the various devices to brew the coffee, how much say for example a cafeteria, (spoonfuls of ground coffee) do you use.
Jon Butt says
Thanks for the kind words. We recommend 30g of fresh coffee per 500ml of water. 250g is roughly a UK mug full. This is also roughly a rounded desert spoon. I hope that helps.
Can you explain your comment about water temperature needing to be between 90 and 96oC further? Fine for cafetieres or filters, but surely any brewing techniques involving pressure (stove tops or expresso machines) the temperature by definition will be 100 oC or above?
Jon Butt says
Sorry for any confusion. The stovetop and espresso machine will have uncontrollable or automatic temperature settings. So, we are referring to water from a kettle.
I hope that helps.
