Coffee brewing guides

Making the perfect cup of coffee might seem easy, but it is actually an art. Below you will find the guidelines to brew the perfect cup of Le Jardin coffee at home.

Before we get started below are a couple of pretty important tips. 

A good grinder can have a big impact in brew quality. Burr grinders produce a much more even grind than blade grinders, which helps to provide a better extraction and more consistent extraction. 

Water quality is very important, not only because good filtered or spring water is always better for you, but also because it has a big impact in the taste of your coffee. The best water for brewing is free of chlorine, sulfur and iron. For the home brewer, we suggest spring or filtered water.
