Although we love to use the French Press, there are several brewing methods you can use to achieve the ideal taste for your coffee. This guide will walk you through a few of our favorite methods for brewing gourmet coffee at home.
Coffee is personal! If you love quick, convenient tasty coffee on-the-go, using a Keurig may suit you well. However, if you enjoy taking your time to craft a full bodied cup, a French Press could fit your mood.

Whole Bean: Grinding your own whole bean coffee ensures you brew the freshest pot of coffee around.The moment you grind a coffee bean, the surface area expands monumentally exposing the fresh grounds to fresh air – and oxygen is the enemy of fresh coffee.
French Press / Coarse Grind: Looking like large grounds of sea salt, coarse coffee is ground mainly French presses (our brewing method of choice) and percolators.
All Purpose Grind / Auto Drip: Sitting in the middle of the grind type spectrum, this coffee is evenly granular and used with standard drip coffee makers.
Keurig / All Purpose Grind: We have verified this grind to be best suited with universal reusable K-cups used in most Keurig coffee brewers.
Espresso / Fine Grind: Espresso grind is very fine yet you should still be able to feel small coffee grains. This grind is used when brewing espresso in an Espresso machine.
