Use a gooseneck kettle to control where you pour, to create turbulence (stirring up the grounds/slurry) and to effect flow rate. This will effect getting an even extraction as well as the overall time of your extraction. We like the Hario Buono Gooseneck Kettle for its durability and range of controlled, slow to fast, flow rates you can achieve.
- Stainless Steel - For stovetop use - 1.2L / 40 oz Capacity
Roasted coffee oxidizes (spoils) just like fruits and vegetables. Leaving coffee whole and then grinding right before brewing (within a month of the roast date), will greatly preserve freshness and allow you to taste the flavor notes we're talking about.
