How to Make Strong Coffee: A Guide By Octave Coffee

Brewing a cup of resilience becomes an art form with Octave Coffee's comprehensive guide on how to make strong coffee. Let's delve into the finer details:

1. Choose Your Beans: Initiate your quest for a perfect cup by grasping the fundamentals of how to make strong coffee with Octave, starting with the exceptional choice of Arabica beans. Delve into the world of crafting robust and flavorful coffee by choosing these beans celebrated for their smooth, nuanced flavor profile. Additionally, Arabica beans excel in producing strong coffee due to their higher acidity and complex flavor characteristics, delivering a bold and well-rounded cup with heightened aromatic notes.

2. Go Dark: For a cup as bold as your decision to hit the snooze button, choose a darker roast. Octave's Lo Fi Dark Roast, offers an intense flavor profile with notes of chocolate or smokiness. It's like a party in your mouth, but before noon.

3. Stay Fresh: Ensure your coffee beans are as fresh as your plans to finally hit the gym (maybe tomorrow). Octave Coffee guarantees optimal freshness, so you get the best flavor and aroma. Consume beans within two to four weeks of the roast date for the ultimate coffee experience. Because let's face it, coffee is only good when it's not pretending to be a relic from ancient times.

4. Grind Smart: Grind size is crucial for a cup that's anything but basic. Use a medium grind for flat-bottom filter baskets and a medium-fine grind for cone-shaped baskets. Octave recommends grinding your coffee just before brewing to unleash maximum flavor. It's like giving your coffee beans a fresh start every morning.

5. Pick Your Maker: Select a drip coffee maker with an adjustable brew strength setting for that personalized touch. Look for features like water temperature control and pre-infusion to enhance flavor extraction. Opt for a reusable metal filter if you're into saving the planet while enjoying a bolder, stronger cup. It's like being eco-friendly but with a side of caffeine.

6. Ratio Experiment: Experiment with the coffee-to-water ratio for a cup that suits your taste buds. Octave suggests ratios between 1:15 for a bolder taste and 1:17 for a standard cup. Use a digital scale for accuracy and become the mad scientist of your coffee laboratory. Because who needs consistency when you can have a flavor adventure?

7. Brewing Process and Time: Control brew time for optimal extraction and a cup that's worth the wait. Octave recommends a brewing time of 5-6 minutes for a strong, well-balanced flavor. Experiment with grind size and water-to-coffee ratio to make your mornings as exciting as your weekend plans. Because who said mornings can't be an adventure?

8. Serve with Style: Serve Octave's version of liquid resilience by adjusting the coffee-to-water ratio and brewing in smaller batches. Keep water temperature between 195-205°F for optimal extraction, because lukewarm enthusiasm has no place in your coffee mug. Avoid over-extraction by maintaining a proper brew time and savor a cup that's as resilient as you are.
