Pour Over/Drip: Coffee Cone

The pour-over/drip method of brewing coffee is a tried-and-true favorite of coffee lovers all over the world. Simple, quick, and effective, the drip method entails pouring hot water evenly over the ground coffee of your choice inside of a paper filter. 

Brewed coffee will drip down directly into your cup. Coffee cones (where you place your matching paper filters) can be made from a wide range of materials including plastic, glass, and stainless steel. Different shapes and materials will yield subtle differences in the taste of your coffee. Try out coffee cones from popular brands like Hario V60 and Kalita Wave until you find a favorite.

If you opt for the drip method, keep a few things in mind:

  • Use 3-4 tablespoons of coffee grounds to produce 1 cup of coffee.
  • Keep the grind of your beans somewhere between coarse and medium-fine.
  • Brewing takes between 1-3 minutes. 
  • Paper Filter must match your Coffee cone. 


Plunger/Press: French Press

The French Press method, popular among many coffee aficionados, brings out the best of your coffee beans. Whether you’re looking for strong, sublime flavors or you enjoy waking up to the sweet, full-bodied aroma of your favorite coffee, try the French Press method for a robust, enjoyable cup at any time of day. 

Using a press pot, you soak, steep, and strain your ground coffee in hot water. This results in a deep, elaborate diffusion of everything you love about your favorite coffee -- essential oils, aroma, and flavor. The french press is also easy to clean, portable, and does not require filters. Try out this Bodum press option to get started.

Best Mimo Beans: Harrar (Whole Bean)

For best results: 

  • Grind 2.5 - 3.5 tablespoons of coffee grounds coarsely to yield one cup. 
  • Let the coffee brew 4 minutes. 
  • Decant all of the coffee immediately after brew to avoid bitterness from prolonged steeping


Percolate: Stovetop Moka Pot 

A 20th Century Italian invention popular in both Europe and Latin America, stovetop coffee makers are perfect for anyone who enjoys an espresso-style cup of coffee from the comfort of home. 

These coffee makers rely on the steam pressure from the boiling water in the bottom chamber rising through a mid chamber filled with coffee grounds. From there, the coffee percolates and is filtered into the highest chamber. This method only requires a gas stove and results in a strong brew comparable to a single or double shot of espresso. Check out this Moka Pot option from Bialetti.

When using a stovetop coffee maker, keep in mind: 

  • Be sure to grind 2.5-3 tablespoons of coffee fine to medium-fine
  • Quality stovetop coffee makers result in better pressure and a better brew! 
  • The brew is strong and can result in a bitter taste so keep your favorite sweeteners ready. 


FYI: All of our ground beans come in a medium-fine grind, which as aforementioned, is not ideal for all brewing methods. We highly suggest investing in a good coffee grinder for the best results for your brewing method.

If you're looking for an overall great grinder, this Oxo Burr Grinder is our top choice. For an easy, simple grind we recommend this blade grinder by Bodum.
