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.

stunning coffee

Not only does Palmpress make an absolutely beautiful coffee press but the actual coffee to go along with it is just as exceptional. Hands down one of the best bags I've gotten in recent months!

Thank you, Adam! So happy to hear!

Great Compact Coffee Maker

After using my brother in law’s Palmpress, I fell in love and bought myself one. It’s compact for small spaces and camping and makes a killer cup of coffee (fool proof with amounts/proportions listed right on the press). I’m considering getting a second for my office. Easy to assemble and clean.

Thanks, Karie!

Awesome product!

This product is amazing. Produces a clean tasting coffee that is enjoyed daily!

Thank you, Sandie!

Works very well

It's so easy to use, I was able to teach my mom how to use it! She loves my French press coffee, but she won't make that on her own, so this is a great alternative.

Thank you, Edward!

Daily use after a month, conclusion: Still excellent.

Super compact. No waste. Used twice daily since purchasing, ~1 month ago.

Filter: Works much better than I expected, after trying stainless steel filters for pourover and aeropress which were never quite fine enough and made for gritty coffee. Regardless of grind, there's *tiny* last sip which I don't drink because of grit, but that could also be my grinder (Breville).

Mouthfeel: Smoother than french press but heavier than aeropress or pourover with a paper filter.

Error rate: I've only totally f'd up only one time, the second time using - the outer rim wasn't tightened up against the lip of the cone when I tightened the top on. Flip, push down, and coffesplosion. I've never found it like that again when I check, so really not anything to worry about.

Cleaning: Easy, but I've picked up one pro-tip after ~60 uses that makes it even easier. After I'm done pushing the coffee out, I do *not* flip it back over! Amazingly, it doesn't really lose a drop if it's upside down, so no worries about it dripping all over. So I take it off the cup without flipping, knock it against the inside of the sink once, and then unscrew and dump the coffee grounds from the top cap into the garbage. If you *do* flip it over, the coffee falls back into the cone, and there's just more grinds that end up in the drain and you have dump both sides into the garbage.

Thank you, Dietrich! Great tips
