Selecting the Beans: Start by choosing high-quality Moravian coffee beans. Look for a medium roast to capture the balanced flavor profile characteristic of Moravian coffee.
Measuring and Grinding: Measure out the desired amount of coffee beans based on your preferred coffee-to-water ratio. A standard ratio is 1:15 (1 gram of coffee to 15 grams of water). Adjust according to your taste preferences. Grind the coffee beans to a medium-coarse consistency, suitable for French press or pour-over brewing methods.
Heating the Water: Fill the kettle with fresh, filtered water. Moravian coffee thrives with water between 195-205°F (90-96°C). Bring the water to a boil and let it cool for a minute to reach the optimal brewing temperature.
Preheating the Equipment: Preheat your French press or pour-over coffee maker by rinsing it with hot water. This ensures that the brewing temperature remains consistent and enhances the extraction process.
Brewing with a French Press:
Add the ground coffee to the French press.
Pour the hot water over the coffee grounds, ensuring they are fully immersed.
Stir gently with a wooden or plastic utensil.
Place the lid on the French press without pressing down the plunger.
Let the coffee steep for about 4 minutes.
Slowly press down the plunger to separate the grounds from the brewed coffee.
Brewing with Pour-Over:
Place the pour-over coffee maker on your favorite mug and add the ground coffee to the filter.
Start by pouring a small amount of hot water over the grounds to bloom the coffee. Allow it to sit for 30 seconds.
Gradually pour the remaining water in a circular motion, ensuring an even extraction.
Allow the coffee to drip through the filter.
Enjoying Your Cup: Pour the freshly brewed Moravian coffee into your favorite mug. Take a moment to appreciate the rich aroma and balanced flavors. Customize your cup with sugar, milk, or enjoy it black according to your taste.
Pairing Suggestions: Moravian coffee pairs well with traditional Czech pastries or simple buttery cookies. Take a moment to savor the flavors and embrace the Moravian coffee-brewing tradition.
Now, sit back, relax, and enjoy the authentic taste of Moravian coffee crafted with care and tradition.
