Our coffee always arrives incredibly fresh. Because of this, you may have issues brewing a brimming full pot of coffee (10-12 cups) in a traditional drip brewer. Coffee, when it is first roasted, releases gasses such as CO2 and other aromatic compounds. This results in ‘foaming’ inside the brewing basket, which can frustrate a tired and groggy individual first thing in the morning. To remedy this, we recommend brewing anywhere between 4-8 cups at a time or around 3/4 full pot. We recommend paper filters or reusable ‘gold’ wire-mesh filters. We also recommend machines that brew into a thermos or insulated carafe rather than hot plate style machines. Always serve coffee immediately after brewing, or transfer into a thermos or insulated carafe.
