Festive Blend Brew Guide

  • 2 min read

So, you’ve got a bag of our brand new Festive Blend, but how should you brew it? Well we’re here to give you the lowdown on our favourite recipes and brew methods for this delicious cup of festive joy.

Espresso

For all you home espresso enthusiasts, we’ll keep it simple. When dialling in an espresso we always recommend a 1:2 ratio, double the weight of your dry dose as liquid espresso. Here’s an example of a recipe that’s been tasting great at our roastery.

18g Festive Blend - Extract 36g Espresso - 29 second extraction time

Give it a go, and remember, if it tastes sour tighten your grind and if it tastes bitter coarsen your grind. Unsure on how to dial-in? Check out our guide

Filter

There’s a plethora of different filter brewers on the market and each brewer will give you a slightly different experience in terms of test. For the sake of this guide not being three pages long, we’ll focus on one pour over method and one immersion method.
