Grind: Next, grind only what you need, right out of the freezer, right when you need it, and not before (so get yourself a grinder if you need one).
Measure: Two (2) level tablespoons of ground coffee for each six (6) ounces of water (or for each regular cup). If you wanna know, that’s the standard of 19% extraction , 1.25% solubles in cup, and 98.75% water!
Brewing: Use a French Press to control all aspects of your brewing, but Kona Premium Coffee is great in your coffee maker and espresso machine. Water – best if clean and sweet, cold and not boiled before. Temperature – less than 200 degrees Fahrenheit, so just off the boil. Time – 4 to 6 minutes. So temp you may not be able to control in the Mr. Coffee, but time you can by the grind (finer, slower; coarser, faster).
Enjoy! Drink it fresh brewed, no holding on heat element. If you need to keep it or head off to work, get a good pump pot or good thermal mug.
