8 Easy Steps to Make Every Cup Great:
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.
GRIND - pick the grind that works best with your coffeemaker. Refer to the Sparkplug Coffee grind chart if you're not sure.
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.
WATER - use the same WATER you’d drink straight up.
TEMPERATURE - use HOT WATER, not quite boiling. Coffee nerds say 91-96ºC or 195-205ºF.
BREW TIME - follow the TIMING recommended for your brewing equipment.
STORAGE - keep your coffee in an AIRTIGHT container in a cool, dark spot. No, this does not include the fridge or freezer.
ENJOY! Drink up while it is hot and fresh.
