My name is Mike Jones, and I'm a barista.
I'm going to show you how to make a French press. First there's a few things you're going to need. You're going to need some fresh coffee, preferably whole bean in which case you'll also need a grinder. You'll need a timer and then you'll also need the French press. So the first thing you're going to do is weigh out the beans. I like to use 25 grams of coffee for this size French press. Now if you don't have a scale, you can also just do three rounded scoops. So you can go ahead and grind this coffee. So this is ground medium coarse. You can play around with the grind setting after making it a couple of times. If it's tasting too bitter and too strong, you might be using a little bit too fine of a grind. And if it's a little bit watery and weak, then it might be too coarse. So you take the French press, and you're going to want to preheat it. You can either take water off a boil, have a nice water tower here. Then you let that sit for a while so it gets up to heat. Alright, so after the French press is preheated, you want to dry it out then add the grounds. Now again, I definitely recommend getting a scale, it just makes brewing coffee easier. But if you don't have one, you just want to use about 12 and a half ounces of water for this size. So I'm going to go ahead and add the water to the French press. The first amount I'm going to add is just enough to soak the grounds at the bottom of the press. So adding that in... so just that much water there. And then just stir it around to incorporate all the grounds with the water and start the timer. And you actually just let that sit there for 30 seconds. I would also recommend covering it when you're not doing anything to keep the heat intact. Alright, after 30 seconds you're going to add the rest of the water. Now this is either 12 and a half ounces or 400 grams of water. Once you've added all of that, just give it another gentle stir. And you put the plunger on and then you'r

Coffee is one of the world's most popular beverages and 80% of it is produced by 25 million small coffee farmers.
Around 125 million people worldwide depend on coffee for their livelihoods. It is the most valuable and widely traded tropical agricultural product and is mainly produced by smallholder farmers.
When you choose Split Rock coffee, not only can farmers build a better quality of life for their families and communities, they can invest in growing better quality beans too.
Coffee Farmers for Split Rock Coffee practice organic farming. An organic farm allows no synthetic chemicals, fertilizers, or pesticides to be used during the cultivation or production processes. An organic farm is managed as the working ecosystem it is, and farmers employ techniques such as composting, terracing, and natural pest control that are often produced on the farm. Most of these techniques are traditional farming methods passed down generation to generation and are more environmentally beneficial because they produce less waste and maintain the natural shade canopy of the tree.
Health Benefits; It should be obvious that Organic coffee would be more healthful because it has not been treated with pesticides and chemical fertilizers.... Additionally, coffee has potential health benefits due to its antioxidant content. Organic coffee may help you lose weight by boosting your metabolism.

In this video we will explain to you the difference between automatic and semi-automatic espresso machine. We get asked this question very frequently. The answer is one simple expression - 'Shot Timing'.
So, what is 'Shot Timing'? - It is the time taken for the hot pressurised water to pass through the coffee grounds to give you your espresso shot measuring around 30 ml.
In a Semi-automatic machine, the user has to control the timing by sight. Which means you flick the switch and start the pump, let the brew pour out, watch the brew fall into the cup, and when you have estimated visually, that the brew collected in the cup is around 30ml, you flip the switch and stop the pump. This is the procedure you need to follow in a semi-automatic machine.
In a fully automatic machine, the electronics inside have a built-in timer which is programmed to stop the pump automatically after a pre-determined time. So all you have to do is press one button to get the pump started. No visual inspection required and perfect results every time.
In worthy to mention here that the industry standard of 30ml for an espresso shot is not etched in stone.
You could, depending on your personal taste or on the basis of the coffee bean characteristics like roast or origin profile choose to have your espresso shot either less or more than the 30ml suggested shot size.
This variation in the shot quantity can be achieved in both machines.
In the semi-automatic, the running of the pump is in your control anyway.
In this video, we go back to the coffee basics where we enumarate the differences between Arabica and Robusta Coffee Beans.
The two varieties differ in taste, growing conditions, price. Arabica beans tend to have a sweeter, softer taste, with tones of sugar, fruit, and berries. Their acidity is higher, with that winey taste that characterizes coffee with excellent acidity.
Robusta, however, has a stronger, harsher taste, with a grain-like overtone and peanutty aftertaste. They contain twice as much caffeine as Arabica beans, and they are generally considered to be of inferior quality compared to Arabica. Some robustas, however, are of high quality and valued especially in espressos for their deep flavor and good crema.
Drinking coffee is a daily activity for many people across the world. Whether you use an electric coffee maker, a French press or any other type of coffee brewing method, you may be wondering how you can avoid throwing all those spent coffee grounds into the garbage.
Here are 6 ways to recycle your used coffee grounds
The bloom of coffee is when all of the gases that have been trapped inside the coffee bean start leaking out. This process begins when hot water is introduced to the grind. Then the bean absorbs and expands and at the same time, pushes out all the CO2 trapped inside. Where does the CO2 come from? It happens during the roasting process. Dark roasts, for example, have more of a bloom, as they are roasted for longer and more CO2 gets trapped inside.
This is how we can tell how fresh a bean is or how freshly roasted it is. The reason it matters is that there is a bunch of flavor in those gases, as well as aromatics. The less gas in your coffee, the staler it will taste. This makes sense because if a coffee doesn’t bloom, it’s probably old.
Ditch that sugar, and try these healthy ways to sweeten and flavor your coffee instead - so you can enjoy a healthier and fresher mug of coffee at any time of the day. Coffee has numerous health benefits. But, by adding a few spoonful’s of sugar to it, you turn that healthy drink into something more harmful. The good news is that you can use many sugar alternatives to sweeten coffee. So, what to put in coffee to make it taste good? And how to make coffee taste good without creamer?
Stevia is a natural, no-calorie sweetener extracted from the South American stevia plant. Using Stevia is one of the most common healthy ways to sweeten coffee. It does have a bit of a distinctive taste though. You can also sweeten coffee with honey. Cinnamon is natural spice that will make your coffee healthier and more flavorful. If you like gingerbread, then adding ginger to your coffee will give you a similar taste! Extracts also mix well with iced coffee. Try a few drops of pure vanilla, almond or hazelnut extract in place of sugar. If you’re looking to add sweetness without a lot of flavor, try pouring a bit of coconut milk into your cup of coffee. Almond milk also makes a delicious healthy coffee creamer. Pure maple syrup is another healthy alternative to sugar in coffee
