Brew Parameters

BREW PARAMETERS

For the most knock-your-socks-off cup of Barefoot Coffee, please use the guide below to prepare your coffee.

Grinding: Just before brewing, grind on the appropriate setting. We recommend using a quality burr grinder. Uneven grinding can lead to over or under extracted coffee (sour or bitter).

Brewing: Time and water temperature are critical to preparing coffee properly so dose and time properly! 

Storing: Beans should be stored in a cool, dry place. Our Airscape storage containers are a great way to keep your beans fresh. 

Espresso: Each of our espressos have different parameters listed on their information pages. Please also remember to rest the beans 7-10 days from roast date which allows the espresso beans to fully develop their flavors.
