Drip Coffeemaker:

Grind to medium and use 2 TBSP (10 grams) of coffee for every 6 oz. water.

  1. Start with Great Arabica Beans! We recommend and brew Raven’s Brew® Coffees (available in our Café, at www.ravensbrew.com, and on Amazon.com)
  2. Invest in a quality Conical Burr Grinder which allows you to adjust the grind for different brewing methods. The consistent grind size is very important. Expect to spend $100 or more.
  3. Grind just what you are going to use.
  4. Always use filtered water (never distilled).
  5. Store the remaining beans in an opaque airtight container, in a cool dry place such as a cupboard. The enemies of fresh beans are air, moisture, heat & light. 


Our Baristas are always happy to grind your beans for you—just ask!​
