MAKING COFFEE

Here are the variables you can control and tweak, to hand-brew your perfect cup of coffee:

INGREDIENTS

Water is the most abundant ingredient in your coffee. Opt for a pure-tasting filtered water so that your cup tastes as clean as possible. And of course, use coffee that you like! See the Choosing Coffee section on what to consider.

GRIND

Choose the right grind size for your coffee-brewing method

The recommended grind size varies from coffeemaker to coffeemaker because of differing filter types, brewing techniques, etc. For Palmpress use a medium grind size, which falls between fine espresso grounds and coarse French press grounds.

For fresher coffee, grind your own

For the freshest taste, grind only the amount of coffee you need just before brewing. Opt for a burr grinder which produces more accurate and consistent results than blade grinders. Uniform coffee particles = even extraction of coffee = better tasting coffee.

Storing

Store your coffee at room temperature in an airtight container, away from light, heat, and moisture.

MEASURING

Coffee is a dry ingredient, and dry ingredients are best measured by weight as they vary in shape and size. Although it’s totally fine to measure your coffee with a spoon or scoop if that’s your preference, consider measuring your coffee using a food scale for a more consistent taste cup to cup.

RATIO

A coffee’s strength and caffeine content is best measured as the ratio of coffee to water. The higher the coffee-to-water ratio, the more concentrated and stronger your cup will be. Experiment with ratios that suit your taste!

BREWING

We aim for a balanced cup of coffee, and below are tips to help achieve just that. We want to avoid an under-extracted or over-extracted cup, which can yield unpleasant flavors.

Use water at the correct temperature

For hot coffee, use approximately 200°F (93°C) water, which is about a minute off boil. For other types of coffee, refer to the water temperature that the recipe calls for.

Ensure even saturation

Gently stir the coffee and water mixture to ensure it’s evenly saturated.

Brew for a sufficient amount of time

For Palmpress we recommend that you start with a three-minute brew time, and tweak to your taste from there. Just like cooking anything else, you control how long it’s cooked for until it’s just right. Good to know: The larger the grind size the more brewing time may be desired, and vice versa.

Lovely coffee

I’m not a coffee expert by any means. I have my one cup a day and that’s my limit 😂. This coffee is very nice…smooth and not acidic. The grind is perfect for my Palm Press. Other coffees clog the filter but I have not had that problem with this one. I will definitely order it again.

Thank you, Leslie!

Cool Travel coffee maker

This is the best portable coffee maker I have had. We backpack and Car camp all the time and we miss having good coffee. I have 2 of them and after 2 yrs they developed a crack in the plastic ring (Due to overtightening). I couldn’t find another (back ordered) so I emailed support. Jess was kind enough to sell me a backup. Wonderful support even though the warranty had expired, I was willing to by another. Compact but slightly heavy for backpacking. Easy to clean and quick to make tasty strong coffee. Not hot enough but warm enough to enjoy. Love the fact that it is environmentally friendly. No more wrappers or filters. Thank you Palm Press. Hope you get the stock back.

Thank you, Rajiv!

Honduras

This is our new favorite coffee! Also got a cool electric kettle which is really fast..only a few minutes longer than K but w a big quality uptick to the coffee experience.

Thank you, Stephen!

Colombian coffee

Just got my bags of Colombian coffee…excellent! Notes of blueberry, smooth as silk. My wife loves it too. We’ve been using the PalmPress for over a year and every cup feels special compared to my Kuerig brews. Keep up the good work Jess!

Thank you, Stephen!

Best coffee ever!

The Columbia coffee I bought turned out to be my favorite. i have two bags of other coffee not being used anymore since the Columbia coffee arrived. I prefer a weaker coffee so I only use scoop (1 1/2 if I’m feeling dangerous). The coffee is smooth, delicious and not over powering. I’m glad I made the purchase and highly recommend you give it a try.

Thank you, Leslie!
