Making great coffee on the Ratio 6 brewer is straightforward and rewarding. Follow these steps to ensure you get the best cup every time.

What You'll Need:

- Ratio 6 Coffee Brewer
- Freshly roasted Torque Coffee beans
- Burr grinder (Baratza and Fellow make great home grinders
- Filtered water
- Scale for weighing beans
- Coffee filter
- Carafe or mug

Step-by-Step Guide:

  1. Preparation

- Clean the Brewer: Ensure your Ratio 6 is clean and free from any old coffee residue.

-  Gather Your Tools : Have your burr grinder, scale, and coffee beans ready.

  1. Measure and Grind the Coffee 

-  Measure Coffee : Use a coffee-to-water ratio of 1:16. For example, if you are making 32 ounces (about 950 ml) of coffee, you'll need 2 ounces (about 57 grams) of coffee beans.

-  Grind Coffee : Grind the beans to a medium-coarse consistency, similar to sea salt. 

  1. Prepare the Water 

-  Filter Water : Use filtered water for the best taste. 

-  Measure Water : Measure out the water according to the amount of coffee you plan to brew.

  1. Set Up the Brewer 

-  Insert Filter : Place a paper filter in the Ratio 6 brew basket.

-  Add Coffee Grounds : Pour the ground coffee into the filter, leveling it out for an even bed.

  1. Start Brewing 

-  Add Water : Pour the measured filtered water into the water reservoir of the Ratio 6.

-  Begin Brew Cycle : Press the start button on the Ratio 6. The machine will go through its automated bloom and brew cycles.

  1. Brewing Process 

-  Bloom Phase : The Ratio 6 will initially wet the grounds and allow them to bloom, releasing CO2 and enhancing flavor extraction.

-  Brew Phase : After the bloom, the machine will continue to pour water over the grounds in a controlled manner, ensuring even extraction.

  1. Serve and Enjoy 

-  Wait for Completion : Allow the brew cycle to complete, which usually takes about 5-7 minutes.

-  Pour Coffee : Once brewing is done, pour the coffee into your carafe or directly into your mug.

-  Taste and Adjust : Taste your coffee and adjust the grind size or coffee-to-water ratio if needed for future brews to suit your preference.

Tips for the Best Coffee:

Use Fresh Beans : Always use freshly roasted coffee beans for the best flavor. Basically buy Torque Coffee!!

Store Beans Properly : Keep your coffee beans in an airtight container, away from light and heat.

Regular Maintenance : Clean your Ratio 6 regularly, including descaling as per the manufacturer’s instructions, to keep it in top condition.

Enjoy your perfectly brewed coffee with the Ratio 6!
