Brewing a Kalita Wave


It’s no secret that good coffee fails without great brewing methods. There are a few basics that all good brewing methods must possess:

  1. Brewing Water Temperature: 195-205 F
  2. Clean, filtered Water
  3. Proper steep time for the grind setting: Coarse Grind = long brew time, Fine Grind = short brew time
  4. Proper Coffee to Water Ratio: 1 gram of coffee for every 16 ml (or g) of water
  5. A consistent grind particle size: Use a burr grinder if possible
  6. Coffee that is not too far off-roast
