Brewing Directions: Automatic Drip

If you have a 12-cup automatic drip coffee pot and some delicious coffee beans from The Sugar Dragon, you're already well on your way to a perfect morning brew. Here's how to make the most of your equipment and ingredients:

  1. Start by grinding your beans to the appropriate consistency. For an automatic drip pot, you'll want a medium grind.

  2. Fill the water reservoir of your pot with enough water to make 12 cups of coffee. Use cold, filtered water for the best results.

  3. Measure out your coffee using a coffee scoop or kitchen scale. A general rule of thumb is 1 to 2 tablespoons of coffee per 6 ounces of water.

  4. Place the coffee grounds in the filter basket of your coffee maker. Be sure to evenly distribute them for an even extraction.

  5. Turn on the coffee maker and wait for the brewing cycle to complete. This should take around 10-15 minutes.

  6. Once the pot is finished brewing, carefully remove the carafe from the hot plate and pour yourself a delicious cup of coffee.

  7. If you're not planning on drinking the whole pot at once, be sure to transfer the coffee to a thermal carafe to keep it warm and fresh.

And that's it! With a little bit of know-how and some high-quality beans from The Sugar Dragon, you can enjoy a perfect cup of coffee every time. Experiment with different grinds and brewing ratios to find the perfect combination for your taste. Happy brewing!
