  1. BEANS - use FRESH roasted Sparkplug Coffee. Fresh is best - drink up within 8-10 weeks of roasting. Or within 2 months of receiving your Sparkplug order.
  2. GRIND - pick the grind that works best with your coffeemaker. Refer to the Sparkplug Coffee grind chart if you're not sure. 
  3. MEASURE - use the proper proportions of coffee to water. We recommend 1 Sparkplug Scoop (2 Tbsp / 30 ml) of ground coffee per 8 oz / 200 ml of water. 
  4. WATER - use the same WATER you’d drink straight up.
  5. TEMPERATURE - use HOT WATER, not quite boiling. Coffee nerds say 91-96ºC or 195-205ºF.
  6. BREW TIME - follow the TIMING recommended for your brewing equipment. Follow the TIMING recommended for your brewing equipment.
