The President advises: Your Best Brew
It's one of the easiest methods and makes several cups so it's great for entertaining guests.
Use 1 1/2 tbsp. of extra fine or fine ground coffee per 3/4 cup of fresh cold water. Fill coffee maker with the desired amount of water. Put coffee grinds in filter and turn on.
In a French press, the coffee grinds pass directly through the water, which results in a richer, deeply flavourful coffee. Great for 1 to 3 people.
Use 1 1/2-2 tbsp. of regular ground coffee per 3/4 cup of cold water. Boil water, then cool slightly from boiling point for best flavour. Pour water into press and stir 5 times so grounds rise to top of pot. Close lid and let steep 3 to 5 minutes before plunging filter down through coffee.
Coffee Essentials from the President
Choose the coffee profile that appeals to your tastes and preferences: light & lively, medium & balanced, smooth and full-bodied or bold & intense.
Choose the right grind. Use extra fine or fine grinds for drip coffee filters; medium grinds for French press and percolators; and extra fine grind for espresso machines.
Your cup of coffee is made of almost 99% water. Using cold, fresh filtered water will result in the best taste.
Use 1 1/2 tbsp. of ground coffee for every 6-ounces of water (hint: a cup is 8-ounces). If you prefer a stronger or weaker profile you can slightly adjust the portions.
Make only as much coffee as you need and enjoy freshly brewed coffee immediately. Any coffee left brewing in the pot will taste bitter after
Leftover coffee residue can build up on your coffee maker and alter the taste of your coffee. After brewing, wash your equipment with warm, soapy water and rinse it thoroughly.
Store your coffee in airtight tins or bags to help preserve flavour and aroma imparted by essential oils. These oils can dissolve if exposed to air for a prolonged time.
