This cup is getting ratio’d

Creator: BackToBlack5

This is similar to the James Hoffman ultimate technique, but his 11g coffee to 200g water just ain’t strong enough for me.

Using a 1:10 ratio I either do 20g coffee to 200g water or, for a larger mug, 25g coffee to 250g water.

Recipe Notes:

  • Dry paper filter
  • 98°C for medium roast, 95°C for dark roast
