Even with fully automatic machines, there are tricks to brewing the very best cup of coffee. We have divided our recipe into three different levels, so you can find a recipe that suits you and your equipment. Or maybe you want to dare to try something a little more advanced? Good luck!
This is our best recipe and yields approx. 6 cups of coffee. Of course, it works just as well if you want to brew more or less, just take a lookthe table to find the right relationship between coffee and water.
Find the foundation
Buy freshly roasted ground specialty coffee then you have the best conditions
Measure out 45g of coffee, which according to the table is about 7.5 tablespoons, and put in the filter. Since light-roasted and dark-roasted coffee weigh a little differently, you can use a little more if you have a dark-roasted coffee, maybe half a tablespoon more (but thus no "extra for the brewer").
Fill the water reservoir with 7.5 deciliters of water, often to the "6 cups" mark on the water reservoir, and snap on. Remember to use a clean jug to pour the water into the brewer - a different jug than the one you brew the coffee in, that is.
Weigh your coffee instead of relying on the measure. The recipe is 6g of coffee per 100g of water, and by weighing the coffee instead of relying on a measure, you create the very best conditions for a good cup of coffee.
Before putting in the coffee, rinse the filter through for a while, this will remove some of the "paper taste". Works great to do under the faucet.
If you have time, and want to improve the conditions further, you can run the coffee maker through with a few deciliters of water before putting the coffee in the filter. This rinses the filter thoroughly and also warms up both the jug and the machine before it's time to actually brew. Just remember to drain the water before brewing the coffee!
Become a home barista
Invest in a mill and buy Whole Beans - freshly ground coffee always tastes best. There are both small manual grinders and slightly larger - but not huge - automatic ones that simplify the job considerably. Please read our guide about mills here.
Grind your coffee to a grind that makes the consistency similar to semolina. Try adjusting the degree of grinding before changing the amount of coffee, too coarsely ground coffee can often taste a bit thin. Of course we have another guide degree of grinding with.
Our best at-home tip for a good cup is to start your brewer and let the water run over the coffee in the filter for a few seconds, then turn off the brewer and stir the coffee. Wait about 30 seconds and then start brewing again. This is called "blooming" and makes the coffee brew more evenly, which increases both taste and fullness.
We've collected our general basic recipes for brewing, but half the fun is experimenting to find your own favorite recipe. Try a few different ones and test yourself, the most important thing is actually that you think the coffee is good!
dosing your coffee
The basic rule when we should be brew and dose coffee is to use 6 grams of coffee on deciliter water. Whether you dispense for bridge coffee, French Press, Chemex, V60 or Aeropress, you can use these guidelines. Here is a simple chart showing how much coffee we can use per deciliter water.

The V60 by Hario is a globally celebrated pour-over method known for its outstanding brewing capabilities. It is perhaps the most classic manual brewing method today. The cone’s angle, the large hole at the bottom, and the spiral ridges along the sides provide the perfect conditions for excellent brewing and a phenomenal cup of coffee.
Espresso is for many a quick, intense, and strong kick in the morning. For others, it’s a mild, rounded cup with fine fresh flavors. Regardless, this brewing method opens up a world of flavors, competitions, and techniques. We love and are passionate about the perfect espresso.
Chemex is a brewing method where form meets function and style meets flavor. It is as beloved for its appearance as it is for its coffee brewing technique. The ability to brew directly into the serving carafe makes this method unique.
This timeless and elegant beverage has now taken its rightful place in the spotlight. There is no equivalent. In a Matcha, you get to experience the green tea leaves in their absolute entirety.
