1. Grind the whole beans for the amount of coffee that you need a few minutes before the brewing process. 2. We recommend using approximately one table spoon of ground coffee per 6 oz cup of filtered or bottled water. 3. Adjust the coffee measurement to get your desired strength. 4. Distribute the coffee evenly in the coffee filter. 5. After brewing, remove the grounds and serve right away to enjoy the full flavor and aroma of an excellent cup. Coffee should be stored in an airtight container, like the bag that you just purchased, and kept in a dry dark place at room temperature. For the best storage results, reseal your bag tightly with the red tin-tie after each use.
