Well, after having made a dozen coffees over the past few days (only 3 using the new Brewista scale), I’m starting to get into a 10 Step routine – which is a good thing for good, consistent coffee.
Before getting started, I placed my empty thermos mug on my scale, then tare (zero’d) it. I added water to the fill mark of the mug, and determined that my 16oz thermos mug holds 470 grams of water. (BTW, this is an awesome thermos – I’ve made coffee and forgotten the thermos at home – and returned home 7-8 hours later to a mug of coffee that is still hot! Additionally, you can fill it up, close the lid, and turn the mug upside down without a single drop leaking out! It also fits perfectly into the cup holders of my Jeep.)
Fill up the kettle – about 2 inches from the top. Put on induction stove, Boost mode.
Get out scale, place small cup on it, and tare the scale. Measure out 28 grams of beans.
Pour beans into grinder (set to 15), and start grinder. This takes about 10 seconds, and then empty doser back into the cup. Read more
