MAKING COFFEE

It’s enjoyable to hand-craft your perfect cup of coffee. Think of brewing coffee like cooking an egg, where you can control some simple variables to yield results to your preference. Here are the variables you can control and tweak:

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.

Bloom the coffee

This is when you pre-wet the coffee grounds with hot water - about twice the amount of water to coffee. You should notice that the coffee puffs up and bubbles form on the surface, caused by CO2 releasing from the coffee.

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.

LOVE the Palmpress!

So easy to use and makes great pour over. Love it!

Easy Morning Ritual

I was doing it wrong before I found the Palm Press. It takes less than 5 minutes to make my breakfast every morning. I heat my water while I toast my toast , and before I know it the coffee is ready to brew. The quality of the coffee from Palmpress is unmatched. I love how every month I receive two coffees to choose from, each unique in taste and power.

I cannot live without my Palm press!! So glad it provides me with a simple, economical , and delicious solution for my morning.

The Palmpress Coffee Press

Coffee on the go done right

I had originally bought the Palm Press for backpacking and even though it is a tad heavy it was well worth the extra weight. No need for coffee filters, all you need is the Palm Press, Coffee and hot water. Super simple design that functions extremely well and looks very durable too. Great gift for coffee lovers on the go!

Easy to use, great for travel and work

I bought this because for many reasons, 1 I don't wanna wash my big coffee machine glasses 2 I don't want to wait for the Italian Coffee Maker 3 my office doesn't have a coffee maker 4 I can't afford Starbucks every day
Palmpress works perfectly! sometimes I even use it for tea leaf, no problem at all, easy to wash, lightweight, in love with it
