I just received my new order of Albion River blend & McCallum House blend. Both are really full bodies and well rounded roasts. I brew auto drip style and add light cream/ brown sugar. It is always excellent. I grind my beans fresh every morning. That perfect middle ground is what you're after.
Would recommend again & again!
My wife and I spent our honeymoon at the Albion River Inn. The next morning they brought to us this delicious coffee. I remember my wife and I looked at each other and said "dang this is some good coffee." We right away called the front desk and asked if they could bring us another brew and they did. I asked what kind of coffee this was and where could I buy it? The lady at the front desk showed me the Thanksgiving coffee website and I've been hooked ever since. We continue to buy the Albion River Inn coffee and it tastes just as great as we had it on our honeymoon, this coffee will always bring us a happy honeymoon memory.
Using the correct amount of coffee will ensure that your coffee is brewed to strength, without over-extracting or under-extracting the coffee to compensate for an inappropriate dose. We recommend 2 grams of coffee for every fluid ounce of water used to brew. Weighing coffee is the most accurate way to measure the appropriate dose. If a scale is not available, we recommend 2 heaping tablespoons of ground coffee for every 5 ounces of water used to brew.
Producing the correct particle size in ground coffee is one of the most important steps in coffee brewing. In general, a finer grind will produce a more intense brew and a coarser grind will produce a less intense brew. At the same time, a grind that is too fine will produce an over-extracted, astringent brew, and a grind that is too coarse will produce a weak, under-extracted brew lacking flavor. In pour-over methods, grind size also affects the rate of extraction, as water will pass more slowly through a finer grind, and more quickly through a coarser grind. We strongly recommend burr grinders over blade grinders.
Water Temperature and Quality
Water temperature dramatically affects the extraction of coffee’s flavor during brewing. We recommend brewing with water at 200-202° Fahrenheit for best results. Using fresh, clean, chlorine-free water is essential.
