Today I finished the last of my La Bean Coffee, and it was a sad day as this was some great coffee. I tired the Bali and the Dark Knight Blend (pictured below) both were great although I must say I preferred the Dark Knight Blend which is a rich dark blend.
One of the great features on the La Bean website is how to brew the perfect cup which is easier than you might think. I prefer to use a French Press over a drip as I find it has the best flavor, trust me switch from your old coffee maker to a french press and you’ll taste the different and love it. Below is how La Bean suggests brewing their coffee to make the perfect cup:
“Brewing the perfect cup of coffee is not that difficult, in fact it is quite easy, it just requires the right ingredients and the right measurements.
Grind your coffee just before brewing and use filtered water.
We recommend using a French Press. It may seem like a hassle but we assure you it’s worth it. Use ½ cup of whole beans for a one liter press. Grind the entire ½ cup on a coarse setting. Use water that is just about to boil (never pour boiling water on coffee grinds) and steep for 4 minutes. Press and enjoy.
If you prepare your coffee in a Drip Coffee Maker, set the grinder to medium and use 2 large tablespoons of coffee per 6 ounces of water.
If you use a cone filter (pour over) grind your coffee fine and use the same ratio of 2 large tablespoons per 6 ounces of water. ” Source
