How to Brew Coffee

There are a variety of ways to brew coffee and each method has its fanatical adherents. Most of us just want a good cup of coffee. However you prefer your coffee brewed there are two very key ingredients that affect all coffee brewing methods: water and coffee. Brewed coffee is mostly water, so make sure you are using quality water, preferably filtered. And, of course, good coffee requires starting with good quality coffee beans.

Certain coffees may lend themselves to particular brewing methods. We feel that a French Press shows off the characteristics of Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee very well, and generally is one of the best ways to brew. We blended our Don Giovanni's Espresso Bellissimo especially for espresso makers, but we have several customers who brew the espresso in a drip maker or French press.
