The Golden Ratio
The Specialty Coffee Association of America has set a golden ratio of 1:18, which is approximately 55 grams of coffee for 1000 ml (grams) of water. To achieve a golden standard cup, it's recommended to use two tablespoons per 6oz cup. This varies depending on brew method and personal preference.

 

Types of Brewing Methods
Drip Coffee: Add water and coffee grounds to the machine's reservoir and filter, then turn it on. The machine heats the water and drips it evenly over the coffee grounds. Once brewed, serve and enjoy.

 

Espresso: Fill the portafilter with fine grounds, tamp them down evenly, and attach it to the espresso machine. Start the extraction process, and the machine will force hot water through the grounds under pressure. Collect the espresso shot in a cup and serve immediately.

 

French Press: Add coarsely ground coffee to the French press, pour hot water over it, and let it steep for about 4 minutes. Press down the plunger slowly to separate the grounds from the brewed coffee, then pour and serve.

Cold Brew: Combine coarsely ground coffee and cold water in a jar or pitcher, then let it steep in the refrigerator for 12-24 hours. Once steeped, strain the mixture to remove the grounds and dilute with water or milk to taste.

 

Pour-Over: In pour-over coffee brewing, hot water is poured over coffee grounds in a filter cone. The water drips through the grounds and filter into a vessel below. It allows for precise control over brewing variables like water temperature and pouring technique, resulting in a clean and flavorful cup.

Each method may require slight variations in measurements, grind size, and brewing time to achieve the desired flavor profile. Experimentation and practice will help you refine your technique for each method.
