The pour-over or drip method is our favorite way to brew French Truck Coffee. Drip coffee is uniquely American, and we think it’s the best way to get the most flavor out of our coffee. Tip: For the best flavor, grind the coffee just before you plan to use it. Why? There are volatile (and tasty!) compounds that dissipate quickly after grinding, but if you grind your beans every time you brew, you’ll capture that flavor in your cup. The grind should be fine enough to clump together when pressed between your fingers. We recommend using fresh filtered water in a good drip coffee maker that heats the water to 195˚F.
The ideal ratio for a pour-over or drip coffee is 25 grams of coffee for every 300 ml of water, or 1 ounce of coffee to 10 ounces of water.
