How To Brew Peak Performance Coffee

August 16, 2016 2 min read

Use The Right Amount Of Coffee

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.

Heat Right

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!

How to Start Craving Healthy Food Instead of Junk Food

How do you do it? How do you avoid sweets, grains, and all the junk that’s out there. The answer, while simple, is not accomplished in a very easy manner, but the reward is amazing. The same can be said of how you approach the food that you eat. I don’t have to avoid eating cake because I have changed my identity in that I just don’t eat cake. If someone offers it, I can easily avoid it because cake is not something that is in my diet and it’s not something that makes me feel good.
