Water
Quality
A great cup of coffee starts with
fresh, quality water. Since water
represents more than 98% of
brewed coffee, it is just as important
as the coffee quality itself. The
water you use should taste like
fresh, good-quality drinking water,
have an odorless aroma, and
contain no visible impurities.
Grind
Selection
The particle size of the coffee
grind is vital for ensuring proper
flavor and extraction. A coffee
grind that is too coarse will allow
water to pass through too quickly
without proper extraction. A coffee
grind that is too fine will lead
to over-extraction and produce
a bitter taste. Your Mill & Brew
coffee maker comes with a Grind
setting to select the optimal grind,
correlating with the number of cups
to be brewed and ensuring proper
grind size for this type of coffee
maker.
A truly fresh cup of coffee only
comes from freshly ground coffee
beans. In fact, once a coffee bean
is broken or ground, its flavour
will begin to degrade over time.
Your Mill & Brew
maximizes the freshness of your
coffee by grinding the coffee beans
just prior to brewing.
It is important to use the proper
coffee-to-water ratio to produce a
finished brew that isn't too strong
or weak. When using whole coffee
beans or pre-ground coffee, we
recommend using 1 tablespoon for
every 1 cup of brewed coffee. This
proportion may be adjusted to suit
your individual taste, or try the Brew
Strength Selector to customize your
flavour!
