How to Brew Drip Coffee by Coava


Even inexpensive coffee brewers can make a delicious cup of coffee as long as you start with the right beans. Whether you’re visiting family for the holidays, traveling for business, or just brewing a pot in your own home, chances are you’re going to find yourself using an automatic dripper at some point. We love to give people guidance on how they can make excellent coffee with this brewing method. Just make sure to give your brewer a deep clean & use fresh, properly ground coffee.

Before You Brew

Fresh Coffee The single most important part of a good cup is starting with high quality, freshly roasted coffee. We aim to drink our coffee within a 14 day window of being roasted.

Purified Water Start with filtered water for best results. If your tap water already has a lot of dissolved solids then it will negatively impact your ability to brew the coffee.

Scale Consider purchasing a scale for your brewing. You'll find it will really boost the consistency and quality in your morning cup of coffee.

Once the brew cycle is finished, pour a cup for the grumpiest family member first (trust us). Then take a deep breath and enjoy a cup yourself. If using a brewer with a hot plate, transfer leftover coffee to an insulated thermos if possible to maintain better temperature and flavor.
