Chemex

A piece of art! Great for entertaining and highlighting the brightness of a coffee. No wonder this piece is part of the Museum of Modern Art’s display in Architecture & Design.

 

Hario Drip Pot

This is a great pour-over coffee brewer because it has a reusable cloth filter. Brew your coffee, compost your coffee grounds and let the cloth filter drip dry.

 

Coffee equipment cleaner

Having a clean coffee brewer and grinder is one of the steps often overlooked for brewing great tasting coffee.

 

French Press 

For many, this is their first brew method after a drip coffee brewer. Brews a full-bodied cup of coffee. Our Tasting Room has a fantastic travel French press mug. The new brü-stop technology separates the coffee from the coffee grounds after you press down the screen. It comes with a second lid that you can turn your French press into a travel mug.

 

Baratza Encore Grinder & Grinder Cleaning Tablets

This grinder has 40 settings and has a hopper that holds 8 oz. of coffee. Grinder cleaning tablets (sold separately) will help keep your grinder working like a champ!

 

Gift certificates

We offer gift certificates good for any amount. Let your recipient choose their gift.

The Hario v60 is one of the easiest ways to brew coffee 1-3 cups of coffee at a time.

Small and portable the Hario v60 has become a favorite brewing method for the office and for those that brew their coffee on the road.

The small ridges of the v60 help the filter from sticking to the walls of the dripper.

The Hario v60 is great for bright coffees where you can pick up floral and fruity notes.

 

Why we like the Hario coffee brewer:

The Hario v60 is one of the easiest and most approachable brew methods. It takes up minimal space and the cleanup is easy since you are brewing directly into the cup.

The Hario v60 brews coffee is a shorter time, approximately 3 minutes per cup.

 

What you will need:

Freshly roasted coffee from Red Cedar Coffee Co.

Grinder

Hario v60 dripper

#2 Hario filters

Water Kettle

 

Pro tip:

Use a digital scale to repeat your favorite coffee recipe.

A good starting point for your coffee to water ratio is 1:16. Use 1 ounce of coffee to 16 ounces of water. Tweak the ratio to your liking.

 

In the Tasting Room:

We offer the Hario v60 in ceramic and plastic along with Hario v60 #2 filters.

If you have attended one of our coffee tastings at our Red Cedar Coffee Co. tasting room in Berea, Ohio, you may have noticed that for pour over (i.e. Chemex, Hario) and emersion (i.e. French press) coffee brewing methods we use a digital scale. Did you know we also use a digital scale when brewing using a drip coffee maker?

Weighing ingredients helps with consistency

Brewing using a digital scale helps to brew coffee with consistency and accuracy. It’s a small step that is extremely helpful to make sure that you are replicating the same brewing recipe each time. Oftentimes a brewing recipe will show a brewing ratio such as 1:16 (one-ounce coffee to 16 ounces water).

How to use a digital scale for pour overs and emersion methods

For pour over and emersion brewing methods we place the brewer onto the digital scale, tare the weight with coffee, and then weight out the amount of water we use to brew our coffee.

Using the digital scale means you have more control in the amount of water you use. This can be helpful when using a 40 oz. Chemex to brew only 16 oz.

Where to get a digital scale

Red Cedar Coffee Co. carries a Hario digital scale in the tasting room.
