Daily meditative practice

Brewing coffee is the first thing that I do every morning. The brewing process functions as a daily meditative practice that helps me to center myself and reminds me to appreciate the simple and harmonious aspects of life. My wife, Kaela, and I always share our coffee in bed reading or simply laying in silence with the windows open.

My brewing method

I have always preferred brewing with the Kalita Wave. I feel like the flat bottom brewing geometry allows you to bring out more nuanced flavors. My brewing method was adopted from a respected roaster here in the US. It starts with a 25g dose to 390 grams of water at 94°C. After a 65g bloom for 30 seconds, I pulse by adding 65g of water in 15 seconds, followed by a waiting period of 15 seconds (i.e. 0:30-0:45 pour 65g, 0:45-1:00 wait, 1:00-1:15 pour 65g, etc). My total brew time is between 3:30 and 3:50.
