Recommended Brew Methods
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.
For a French Press brew we recommend a 1:12 coffee to water ratio with coffee ground at the consistency of sea salt. Add your grounds to the brewing chamber. then add twice the water as there are grounds to the chamber. Stir gently and allow to bloom for about 30 seconds. Place the top on the press and allow it to steep for 4 minutes. Plunge the press slowly and enjoy!
About The Roaster
Roasted Fresh in Olympia, WA & Atlanta, GA
If you’re a PNW local, you may remember Batdorf and Bronson from its roots: The Dancing Goats Coffee Bar in Olympia, which was started by Batdorf and Bronson owners Larry and Cherie Challain. In 1994, they opened their first Batdorf and Bronson store in Atlanta, taking the spirit of Washington coffee back East. These days, the Challains are working on building a bonafide coffee empire, with their two beloved coffee shops flanking the U.S. in Atlanta and Olympia.
