RELATIONSHIP TO JUNIORS
This is the second year that we've worked with an Indonesian coffee for the Gado Gado coffee. This year we bought through Atlas Coffee Importers. While the Kopepi Ketiara is not a coffee we have discussed partnering with on the Cost of Production Covered (CoPC) Project, we've been chatting with Atlas about the project for several years now. We bought this coffee because of our relationship with Atlas, but also because we had tasted coffee from Kopepi Ketiara in the past. We are so happy to work with this cooperative because it's woman led and because of its great reputation for organic and Fair Trade standards.
HOW WE BREW THIS COFFEE
There are countless influential variables and industry professionals that influence the quality of coffee before it reaches the coffee cup, and the last step to reap the benefits of this tremendous work takes place when it’s brewed.
Before talking about how this coffee brews best, let’s review some brewing basics:
Dose is the amount of coffee we use (measured in grams). If you don’t have access to a digital scale, know that 1 tablespoon is equivalent to 6-8 grams of wholebean coffee.
Water Input is the weight of the water we use (measured in grams) to brew with.
* We suggest a coffee to brew water ratio of 1:16 to 1:17 for filter coffee. For example, if you’re using 15g of coffee and 250g water, your brew ratio is 1:16.67.
Burr grinders will give you a more consistent Grind Size, and you’ll be able to repeat the same grind size twice. It’s best to grind your coffee right before brewing, because grinding your coffee too far in advance accelerates the aging process of your roasted coffee. Remember that the finer you grind, the more you extract.
Brew Time is the amount of time the water and coffee interact together. The longer you brew something for, the more you extract.
We recommend Brew Water Temperature between 200°F and 205°F. If you are using a kettle on the stove, bring the water to a boil and wait 30-45 seconds off boil before using the water to brew. The hotter your brewing water is, the faster you can extract coffee.
Brew Ratio: We recommend a 1:16.5 brew ratio for this coffee.
Grind: We grind this coffee on a 7 (on a scale of 1-9, 9 being the most coarse) for flat bottom filter.
Total Brew Time: We brew this coffee for 4:00 to 5:00 minutes for flat bottom filter.
Tips: This coffee runs pretty pretty fast, so if you're brewing via pour over, pour more slowly!
