Don't worry, you'll love this roast too much to ever open a decaf spite store.
- ESPRESSO: If want to try pulling this, go fine! Decaf need a fine grind and can sometimes be tricky to dial in.
- POUR-OVER: We recommend grinding a touch coarser for pour over for this roast, and try to limit your pours to 1-2 (post bloom) and total time closer to 3 minutes.
- FRENCH PRESS: We recommend the James Hoffman method for this roast: 16.67:1 ratio // medium grind (not too coarse) // add water, do not stir, brew for 4 minutes // after 4 mins break crust gently, scoop everything that floats // let sit for another 5-8 minutes // don't press all the way, only use it as a filter at the surface of the brew.
