Frequently Asked Questions

How should I store my coffee?

We recommend storing your coffee in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight.

How long can I store my coffee for?

Our coffee is roasted in small batches and leaves our warehouse with a Best Before date usually being around 8 weeks from the date of roasting. The flavour of coffee is best when freshly processed, so it's ideal to purchase in quantities that will last you 2-4 weeks.

What temperature should the water be before pouring over the drip filter? 

Water that is too hot will create a bitter brew, and water that is too cold will create more sour flavours. The ideal water temperature is about 93 degrees but … you’re most likely at the "campfire cafe", not Starbucks, so just bring your water to the boil and let it sit for a minute to cool slightly. 

What is the best way to make pour over coffee?

First, pour just enough water to evenly soak the coffee without draining through, then allow it to rest for 30-60 seconds. Next, simply pour slowly in a circular motion, evenly covering the coffee and fill the filter to the top. Allow the water to drain through and repeat the process 3 - 4 times to fill your mug.

How much water do I need to use with the drip filter?

The amount of water needed should be based on your own preference. We typically pour 3-4 times to fill a standard mug 1/2 - 3/4 of the way. Generally, one filter will brew a “double shot” equivalent cup of coffee.

What do I do with the drip filters when I’m done?

They’re paper so you can chuck them in the fire or pack them out and put them in the compost. Even though they’re biodegradable, don’t leave them in the bush!
