Our brewing styles

The brewing styles that we use at our Tokyo brew bar, and some other ones as well.

Pourover

Our go-to recipe for pourovers. This recipe is intended for flat-bottom drippers and may require adjustments for other styles of drippers (V60, April, etc.)

Ideal for very lightly roasted coffees like ours.

Espresso

Since the start of 2024, we've transitioned to a more modern turbo-style shot, rather than a traditional 9-bar 30+ second shot (aka boomer shots). We find that at the sacrifice of body and texture, we get an incredibly juicy, bright, sweet, easy to drink espresso.

Ideal for lightly roasted coffees.

The recipe is as follows:

  • flat 6-bar pressure profile
  • 18g in, 54g out (1:3 ratio)
  • 23 second shot (from water flow)
  • 91-93C brew temperature
  • No pre-wetting/preinfusion

Aeropress

A simple and forgiving method that we feel comfortable recommending to anyone. Perfect for a busy morning when you need to get out the door quick.
