Nectar in your cup

This brewing method works best to bring the boozy-nectary sweetness from natural (or) honey-processed coffees. In fact, as someone who is fairly new to brewing coffee at home, it was while using this method that I first tasted the 'nectary-sweetness' in coffee and discovered it was way different from the 'sugary-sweetness' that I usually associated the taste of 'sweetness' to.

Dialing it in

No two coffees are the same; thus, there is room for adjustment when dialing in using this method. I've found the adjustment is best done in Grind Size and Brew Time while keeping the water temperature, amount of coffee, and the amount of water constant.

šŸ“ Recipe Notes:

  • Grind size: Medium-fine, 30 clicks in my Kingrinder K6
  • Beans: Light roasts with bright, fruity/flower notes (works best with natural/honey processed)
