Use water with minerals designed for coffee (best), filtered water (good), or tap water (acceptable) heated to 200 – 205 degrees F(except for cold brew).

On a scale of 1 – 10, 1 being the finest and 10 the coarsest, we recommend using a burr grinder and the following grind settings as starting points for each brew method.

Refer to the accompanying diagrams on “Extraction & Taste Perception” and “How to Dial in Coffee” to make the best of your brew.
