Description About Coava Coffee Roasters - Guatemala Juan Francisco Pira
Coava describes Jaun Francisco Pira as an “absolute perfectionist.” He involves himself in every part of the farming, selection, and processing sequence in order to ensure the very best coffee makes its way to his sourcing partners. With farms irrigated by Lake Atitlán, one of the most beautiful lakes in the world, and close proximity to the processing station, Pira’s network of coffee production is highly sought after. This roast offers riched notes of baked peach, fudge, and caramel, and is delicious no matter how you brew it.

Recommended Brew Methods
A 2:1 water-to-coffee ratio for your espresso shot is recommended. Using a scale to dial in your shots makes the process faster and more accurate. Your espresso grind should be very fine and powdery. Shots should take 30-40 seconds to brew and be thick and syrupy. Don’t stress, adjustments are always needed to get your shots pulling just right!

We recommend a 16:1 water to coffee ratio for your dosing. Use a scale for best results! For pour over, use a medium-coarse grind size somewhere between drip and press levels. Start with a short pour to wet the grounds and “bloom” the coffee for 30 seconds, followed by two more pours, divided in half to reach the appropriate remaining ratio of water to coffee.

Start with a 16:1 water-to-coffee ratio for your dosing. You’ll want a medium grind size for drip brewing that’s finer than what you’d use for pourover. Make sure you give the filter basket a shake to evenly distribute the grounds in the filter for best results. Turn on your brewer and it’ll do the rest!
