Brewing Method Recommendation: Automatic and manual filter brew are our favorites methods for this unique coffee but lovers of fruit-forward, floral and syrupy espresso will not be disappointed. For filter brew manual or automatic drip machine, we think it tastes great at a solid 16:1 water to coffee ratio.
