Brewing

Immersion

Here, hot water and coffee sit together in a chamber for a certain period before being separated, possibly by a filter. Popular methods here are the French Press, Aeropress, and cupping. Here we would recommend a slightly higher starting ratio of approximately 75 g of dry coffee per litre of water. Here you are in control of both contact time and grind size, so either start with a finer grind and a shorter contact time of approximately 1 minute, popular with Aeropress, or a coarser grind and a longer contact time, around 4 minutes, popular with French Press and cupping. Either combination, and anything in between, can yield clean and balanced results, and can often show off slightly different facets of a coffee’s character, so experimenting is recommended.
