Here is the introduction of how to brew delicious coffee at home.

  1. The first try! Grind coffee by manual coffee grinder

    Delicious pour over coffee starts with grinding coffee beans.
    Roasted coffee beans get oxidized as time passes. If we grind coffee beans, the area to touch air becomes wider. So, ground coffee beans get oxidized earlier.

      Staff’s comment

      • With the electric coffee grinder, coffee beans can be ground in an instant. However, for the favorite coffee beans, I would like to grind them with my hand. Don’t you think that manual coffee grinder expresses our affection to coffee beans more?
        In fact, I prefer the aroma of coffee when it is ground rather than that of when I drink coffee. In addition, we can feel the achievement when we finish grinding. Our male staff said, “it was not so hard to grind for me.”
        If you have your husband or boyfriend, ask him to grind coffee beans. The time for preparing coffee would be happier.

  2. Boil hot water, and set ground coffee in the coffee filter

    The first important point of how to brew delicious coffee is the temperature of hot water.
    It depends on the kinds of coffee beans or stages of roasting, but the adequate temperature for coffee is 85~90℃ (about 185~194℉)
    Wait a minute after the water is boiled. Then the hot water becomes the adequate temperature.

    If we brew fast coffee with just boiled water, the coffee becomes “strongly bitter and fresh taste.”
    If we brew slow coffee with the hot water of 85℃, the coffee becomes “strongly sweet, full bodied and mellow taste.”

    Next, set the ground coffee into the filter.

    When a foam comes, please be careful not to break it. Pour hot water from the center. When the whole coffee powder becomes swell, start to whirl the hot water. Gradually spread the radius, and finally, whirl the hot water in about 3cm in diameter.

    Staff’s comment

    • If the coffee beans do not swell, it does not necessarily mean that the coffee beans are bad. However, the swelling coffee beans are fresh beans.
      I was a little bit tense while pouring hot water since I cannot break the foam.
      To make a delicious coffee, pour hot water slowly and carefully, with expectation to the swelling coffee beans.

Their request is “make a spout that can pour hot water like dripping drops of water.” Noda Horo finally reached to this unique form of spout by repeating trial and errors.
