This past weekend we decided to up our hand brewed coffee, so we purchased two new Baratza Vario W grinders. So far these little machines have been absolutely stellar. Quick and easy to program and the consistency of the grind is incredible. They’ve been perfect for V60 and Chemex brewing.

Brewing individual cups of coffee creates a fresher and smoother tasting cup of coffee. By controlling all of the variables that go into the brewing process, you can really dial in the perfect taste of your coffee. Adjusting the grind settings correctly is the first step in getting the best taste out of your coffee, which is why investing in good grinders is always a good move. Next is weighing out your coffee/water ratio. The industry standard ratio is 15-1 (15 grams of water to 1 gram of coffee). Then the final factor in brewing a great cup of coffee is water quality and temp. Having filtered water set at 200 degrees is perfect for brewing pour over coffee.
