Why You Should Rest Your Coffee
If you're a coffee lover, you know that freshly roasted coffee is the best.
But did you know that freshly roasted coffee needs to rest? This process, also known as de-gassing, allows the carbon dioxide and other gases produced during roasting to escape. This is important because if the gas is trapped, it will impact the extraction and lead to inconsistent brews.
How Long Should You Wait?
The general rule of thumb is to wait 24 hours before brewing your coffee.
This gives the gas time to escape so that you can enjoy a delicious cup of coffee without any inconsistencies. However, we understand that waiting can be hard. Luckily, there are a few things you can do to speed up the process.
One method is to pre-heat your brewing vessel with hot water. This will help release the gas from the coffee faster. Another method is to grind your coffee immediately before brewing. This will also help release the gas faster.
We know that waiting can be hard, but trust us, it's worth it.
By allowing your freshly roasted coffee to rest, you'll be rewarded with a delicious cup of coffee free of any inconsistencies.
So next time you're tempted to brew your coffee right away, remember that patience is a virtue. Your taste buds will thank you!
