Tear off the top of the filter bag where you see perforation.
Extend the hangers away from the filter bag, and place them on the edges of your cup so that the filter bag is suspended.
We like to fold the hangers for greater stability. (This is totally optional.)
With all pour over coffee, you want to wet the grounds with a small amount of water to help CO2 escape before brewing. Wait about 20-30 seconds after wetting.
For best results, add 6-7oz of hot water around +/- 197F. You should fill and drain the pouch around 3-4 times (depending on your particular tastes).
Remove and dispose of filter bag after brewing.
TRIBO COFFEE is designed to help you have a great cup of specialty grade coffee anytime, anywhere. We’ve done all of the hard work planning, calculating and roasting so that you can essentially be a barista whenever and wherever the mood strikes. That said, we think it's a good idea to consider some general information about roast type and ideal brewing temperatures.
COFFEE BREWING 101
LIGHT ROAST COFFEE: Light roast beans, as you can imagine, maintain more natural bean structure because they're simply not baked as long as darker roasts. Therefore they are more dense due to containing more CO2 and moisture. Light roasts tend to brew a bit more slowly. You may want to use hotter water to more effectively extract the natural flavors from these beans. We recommend using water temperature around 93-94C/199-201F. TRIBO Coffees: Ethiopia
MEDIUM ROAST COFFEE: Medium roasted coffees are obviously roasted a bit longer than light roasts, so they have released a bit more CO2, as well as lost a bit more bean density. Therefore you can achieve nice flavor extraction with slightly less hot water (as compared to brewing a light roast). We recommend brewing with water around 90-92C/194-197. TRIBO Coffees: Guatemala and Expedition Blend
MEDIUM-DARK ROAST COFFEE: Beans that are darker roasted have already released a lot of their CO2, and have become less dense through the roasting process, so they can be brewed with slightly less hot water. We recommend using water temperature around 88-90C/190-194F for these coffees.
TRIBO Coffees: Papua New Guinea and Campfire Blend
Not everyone has access to a thermometer for brewing, especially when on-the-go, however you can easily achieve great results with TRIBO by simply letting your boiled water cool a bit 'before you start brewing.' Definitely experiment with what works best for you, but we generally recommend that you let your boiled water rest around 30 seconds before brewing Ethiopia, 1 minute before brewing Guatemala and Expedition, and around 1.5 minutes before brewing PNG and Campfire. Definitely experiment with what resting intervals work best for you, but if you generally follow our timing suggestions, you will certainly brew great cups.
AFTER YOU BREW
Feel free to let your cup cool a little as you drink. You may notice interesting and delicious new flavors at lower temperatures. Also, please note that TRIBO pouches are intended for one-time use, so you won't achieve the same delicous results if you try reusing pouches. We hope you enjoy, and please let us know what you think. You can always find us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram @tribocoffee. Enjoy!
