Want to know how to brew the best cup of coffee around? Look no further!

BEFORE YOU BREW YOUR COFFEE

If you want to brew the best cup of coffee, always use good water, either spring water or filtered. We wouldn’t recommend using water that has been run through a reverse osmosis system because it takes too many of the minerals and other good things out of the water.

Most importantly, always use fresh ground coffee.


SINGLE SERVE:

  1. Pick your favorite mug.
  2. Insert into single cup brewer and choose 8 oz. setting.
  3. Prepare for tasty coffee.

Single Serve Brewing Instructions


FRENCH PRESS:

  1. Start with fresh ground coffee, coarsely ground, about 55 grams for an average size press pot.
  2. Put coffee in press pot.
  3. Add water, ideally around 200 degrees Fahrenheit or just before it starts to boil.
  4. Start timer. At 2 minutes stir the coffee and put the lid on. Do not push the plunger yet.
  5. Let the coffee steep for 4 minutes total. At the 4 minute mark, push the plunger down.
  6. Serve the coffee.

HARIO POUR OVER:

  1. Start with Fresh Ground coffee. A medium grind works best with this method. Use about 40 grams for this pour over.
  2. Put a filter in the holder and place in the top of the pour over. Rinse the filter with hot water from your kettle, just enough to rinse the filter and warm the decanter a bit.
  3. Pour out the rinse water and place the decanter on your scale.
  4. Replace the filter holder, with the filter in it, in the decanter.
  5. Add your coffee to the filter, place everything on your scale and zero the scale.
  6. Start pouring water over the coffee and start your timer.
  7. You will want to add 500 grams of water, about 500 ml, in around 4 minutes.
  8. At around the 4 minute mark, take the filter holder out of the decanter and serve your coffee.

FRENCH PRESS VS. HARIO POUR OVER

Using these two brewing methods with offer a couple different taste profiles in the cup. We like brewing with both because you can get great cups of coffee out of either one.

  • The French Press will give you a much bigger, bolder, cup of coffee.
  • The Pour Over will give you a cleaner crisper cup.

  1. I just got a brand new Mr.Coffee Maker to own and I went to the grocery store and a lady from your company helped me pick two different light coffees. I got the Morning Roast and the French Vanilla Cream. I brewed the French Vanilla Cream and it came out awesome. I only do it for 2 cups to drink in the morning, cause I drink it with my breakfast only. Tomorrow I’ll be trying the Morning Roast. She gave me such great advice on the difference between light and dark. I wish I would of caught her name. She was so helpful. I’m really liking your brand of coffee. I will be trying different flavors with the Morning Roast as I want to buy one that is not flavored. I will continue to buy your brand at the grocery store now. Thanks for making such great coffee.

  2. As a new coffee lover, I just purchased a new coffee maker. How many tablespoons of coffee beans should I use to enjoy my coffee each morning for a 12 cup coffee maker? How about for your ground coffee?

  3. Hi Angie, you should use 2 tbsp of ground coffee for every 6 oz of water! Let us know if you have any other questions.

  4. I decided to get out my French press for a change .lt said to use course grind but I notice you did not offer that choice . Also how many TABS for an 8oz cup . I did orde a bag of ground and a bunch of single serve . I guess I will get the beans next time and grind myself

  5. Hi Lanita! We recommend starting with two rounded tablespoons of grounds per 8oz cup. This can then be adjusted with more or less coffee for your desired effect. Let us know if you have any other questions!

  6. I use a Canadiano coffee maker, so how should I use that for a better cup of coffee.(I use Toasted Southern Pecan and a Charred Oak: Limited Edition Canadiano coffee maker).

  7. Your Canadiano works similar to a pour over – we recommend using the tips listed for the Hario pour over method 🙂

  8. Can we order those Cameron’s t-shirts ?…
    We live in PA and cannot come to your warehouse sale and tours…

    Also, will the Cameron’s pods work in a new Keurig single serve ?…
    We researched Keurig and the new Keurigs have a sensor? to recognize their k-cups…

    Does Cameron’s recommend a specific single brewer for the Cameron’s pods ?…
