 Café Aroma - Ritual


Make your coffee preparation a ritual - regardless of the method of preparation! Rituals give structure to our day, make us stop, get out of our daily routine a little and come to ourselves.

Here you will find some basic tips on the preparation methods that you will find on the label of our Ritual coffee. The quantities listed here are approximate, but vary depending on the coffee and your own preferences. The age of the coffee and the way it is stored will also change the parameters of the preparation. These tips do not replace any of the manuals n the market, which certainly have many more useful tips for each type of preparation.

What you should definitely have at home:
• Scale (gram-exact)
• Kettle, preferably with a spout
• Coffee grinder (for smaller quantities, also a manual grinder will do)
• Stopwatch (the one on your mobile phone will do too)

Golden rule for all preparation methods: The coffee should always be ground shortly before preparation.

The following applies to all pour-over methods:
• Water the filter with hot water (pour this water later!)
• Water should never boil during infusion. The ideal temperature for pouring water is between 93° and 96° Celsius.
