The standard measure for brewing coffee of proper strength is 2 level tablespoons per 6 fl. Oz of water or about 2 3/4 tablespoons per 8-ounce cup.
Keep Your Coffee Fresh
After use, always store the unused coffee in your Peak Performance coffee bag. Roll the top of the bag properly and use the twist-tie to hold in place. Keep at room temperature.
Use Good Water
Nothing can ruin a pot of coffee more surely than tap water with chlorine or off flavors. You can use bottled spring water or activated-charcoal/carbon filters on their taps.
Water that is too hot will extract compounds in the coffee that are bitter rather than pleasant. Colder water will result in flat, under-extracted coffee. The proper brewing temperature is 200°F, or about 45 seconds off a full boil. You can heat water using a kettle, saucepan, microwave, or electric hot pot.
Pour and Let It Sit
Turn off the heat source and allow the water to rest a minute before pouring it over the grounds. Pour the hot water over the grounds… Let it sit for a few minutes.
The amount of time that the water is in contact with the coffee grounds is another important flavor factor. In a drip system, the contact time should be approximately 5 minutes. If you are making your coffee using a French Press, the contact time should be 2-4 minutes. Espresso has an especially brief brew time — the coffee is in contact with the water for only 20-30 seconds. Strain the grounds out as you pour the coffee into a mug. Enjoy!
