Coffee Brew Principia

Many people ask us the principle behind the perfect brew, here is a guide that we have put together based on our experience and the way the Jura brewing unit is programmed:

Rule 1:
Fresh Roasted Only

Always use fresh roasted coffee. Coffee is best 6-8 hours after roasting and will retain its aroma for up to 2 weeks, and flavour for about 2 and a half. Our tests on freezing our coffees found that aroma is preserved for 2 months, while flavour just under three months. See FAQ for more details about this

Rule 2:
Fresh Ground

Always grind coffee as you are about to brew it. Typically ground coffee looses half its aroma every 3 hours and half its flavour every 6 hours. The newer the grind the more life it has in your mouth

Rule 3:
Delectable Water

Use fresh, clean water that you enjoy drinking, the rule of thumb is that you should enjoy drinking the water that you would add. Technically this normally means that it has a hardness less than 10°(dH), and Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) parts per million of more than 50, less than 250

Rule 4:
Prepare Brewer

Always prepare the coffee brewing equipment as you are about to brew. Make sure it is clean, ready and at the correct temperature so that the equipment is eased into the brew, and at no more or no less than 5°C of the temperature you are going to brew the coffee at. If preparing an espresso for the first time then run water through the brewer for at least 10 seconds, before you make you favourite brew

Rule 5:
Perfect Temperature

Coffee brewing water should be just below boiling point (as measured at sea level), between 93 and 95°C is best. If the water temperature is too high, your coffee will taste bitter (and for espresso brew have a reduced amount of crema) – if it is too low, the coffee will taste acidic, flavourless and watery.

Rule 6:
Match Extraction to Method

Your brewing time must match the method you use to expose the grinds to the water. For pressure based espresso 17 to 25 seconds is optimal to expose the flavours, and reducing the bitter after taste

Rule 7:
Clean your Brewer

After brewing dispose the grinds and rinse the filter completely at least. This helps with Rule 4

Rule 8:
Drink Immediately

Coffee is most enjoyable in the first five minutes after being brewed. These are the magic moments to enjoy your brew. Ever tried reheating coffee - yuk! (i.e. like instant)
