The Beans: For having the best cup of coffee, most essential thing: Fresh and quality beans. Do check country and region of origin, variety of Beans, Roast and Grind. Buy coffee in small quantity. Always Grind beans as close to the brew time as possible for maximum freshness. Size of the Grind is hugely important to the taste of your coffee.

Coffee- Water Ratio: Golden Rule: One tsp to two tsp of ground coffee for every six ounces of water. Adjust to individual taste preferences.
