Brew Guides

We always ensure to make time to play around with each of our coffees and figure out the recipes and brew methods we like best for each of our gals, but we know this is a luxury that not everybody has time for - or even the inclination!

So, we’ve put together a list of the ‘standard’ recipes for various brewing methods, these are just a basic guide that’ll save you time, and give consistent results.


  • V60
  • V60 02
  • V60 filter paper
  • V60 Scoop
  • Hario Carafe/vessel capable of holding 500ml
  • Spoon
  • Timer
  • Boiled water (preferably filtered)
  • Medium-fine ground coffee (select ‘paper filter’ if ordering pre-ground)
  1. Fold the filter paper along the seam and line the V60 with it, then pre-wet the filter paper with your boiled water.
  2. Dose 3 full scoops (10g per scoop/30g in total) into the centre of the V60. Tap any excess grinds off the sides.
  3. Begin timer and pour your hot water onto the coffee grounds in a circular motion for 30 seconds.
  4. Stop pouring and leave to drip through for an additional 30 seconds. (Total time 1 minute)
  5. Pour in the same circular manner as before for another 30 seconds, aiming to half-fill the Hario Carafe (500g/500ml). (Total time 1 minute 30 seconds)
  6. Swirl the V60 or stir the grounds to level out the coffee bed, then leave for the water to pull through.
  7. Total brew time should be around 3 minutes.
  8. Enjoy your badass brew, you badass you!


  • Aeropress
  • Aeropress filters
  • Aeropress scoop
  • Aeropress paddle
  • Timer
  • Mug
  • Boiled water (preferably filtered water)
  • Medium-fine ground coffee (select ‘paper filter’ if ordering pre-ground)
  1. Put filter into cap and twist filter securely onto chamber.
  2. Stand chamber on mug and put one heaped scoop (14g) into the chamber and shake to level.
  3. Start your timer and pour your boiled water into the chamber up to the number 4, then stir with paddle for 10 seconds.
  4. Insert the plunger to create vacuum, but do not plunge until your timer reads 1 minute.
  5. Press gently and with even weight on the plunger and stop when you hear a hissing sound- total brew time should be around 1 minute 30 seconds.
  6. Now drink up gorge!

French Press

  • French press/Cafetiere
  • Boiled water (preferably filtered water)

  • Mugs
  1. Dose x5 full scoops (7g per scoop/35g in total) into French Press.
  2. Start your timer and pour your boiled water into the carafe, aiming to cover all the grounds and half fill the French Press (500g/500ml) in 30 seconds.
  3. Leave to brew for 8 minutes, then insert metal plunger and plunge down gently and evenly.
  4. Serve immediately to avoid over-brewing the coffee.

  • Espresso machine
  • Tamp
  • Timer
  • Finely ground coffee (select ‘espresso’ if ordering pre-ground)
  • Mug/espresso cup
  1. Remove the portafilter from the group-head and purge with hot water.
  2. Clean and dry portafilter and dose with one level teaspoons worth of coffee (18g).
  3. Tamp your coffee grounds ensuring the tamp is flat and the weight evenly distributed so that the coffee is level.
  4. Insert the portafilter carefully and securely, start timer and begin brewing immediately.
  5. Stop brewing between 28-30 seconds (a double shot should weigh roughly 36g).
  6. Drink up - espresso might not be the answer, but it’s definitely worth a shot.

If you are looking to brew cold brew, or cup our coffees at home when you’re ordering pre-ground, place your order with ‘French Press’ pre-selected, and then please email our Operations Manager with your order number at to let us know as we will need to go coarser for your cold brew/cupping. The same goes for if you’re brewing Turkish coffee; select ‘Espresso’ when ordering, and then get in touch to let us know you’re brewing Turkish coffee, as we will need to go finer than any of the pre-selected options available.

Please note that while we offer pre-ground options to keep our coffees as accessible as possible, you’ll get the best results with freshly ground coffee.
