At SweetZekes, we handcraft your roasted beans to perfection, to ensure you enjoy the freshest roasted coffee flavor in every brewed cup of delicious aroma and exquisite taste. Following are a few tips to ensure you brew an excellent cup of java:
- Use only cold fresh filtered water.
- Grind beans just before brewing -Course grind for coffee press; Medium grind for automatic drip; Fine grind for Italian or Expresso Roast. We recommend a Burr Grinder for at home use to achieve a more consistent coffee grind versus a Blade Grinder. There are two types of Burr Grinders: Wheel Burr Grinder- The less expensive of the two burr grinders. The higher speed rotation makes these grinders a bit more messy, but they are effective. Conical Burr Grinder - The best grinders you can get are conical burr grinders. The burr spins slower than the wheel model, which makes them quieter and less messy. These grinders work well with oily coffees, and are less likely to clog. These are the best type, but they are a bit more expensive.
- 2 Tablespoons ground coffee for every 6 fluid ounzes of water or to your personal taste satisfaction.
- Maintain SweetZekes fresh roasted goodness by sealing tight in its gas-valve bag, which preserves quality and freshness, and use coffee within one week of opening.
Coffee Grinder Purchasing Tips: Conical Burr Grinders provide the best quality grind for your Arabica whole coffee beans from SweetZekes Coffee Company. Look for a burr grinder that has designated settings for automatic drip, french press and espresso for your grinding convenience.
