Coffee: Roasting, Brewing

Grinding and Brewing the Coffee

You really need to get a decent burr grinder. It makes a world of difference when extracting the best flavor out of your coffee. Alton Brown totally agrees. I use a Capresso Infinity Conical Burr Grinder that I bought from Amazon. I love it.

You can really just pop it in any old coffee maker, 1 to 2 Tablespoons of ground coffee per six ounces of water depending on your preferences. Me? When I have guests over I pop it in a really OLD coffee maker. I love my Kona vacuum brewer. It’s seriously old school. They’ve been making parts for this one since, what? 1921?
