Auto Drip Home Coffee Brewing Guide

This is by far the most common brew method in people’s households. Although you can get a coffee machine anywhere, the Specialty Coffee Association has a list of certified home brewers. These machines meet the requirements to brew the best extraction of your Frothy Monkey specialty coffee. No matter what machine you have, follow these instructions to get the most out of your home brewer.

Frothy Monkey Auto Drip Home Coffee Brewer Standards

  • Dose = 58g coffee
  • Water weight = 1000g
  • Coffee to water ratio = 1:17
  • Grind = Medium Coarse

Step By Step Auto Drip Home Coffee Brewing

Step 1 – Weigh and grind your coffee

Use 8 grams of your favorite coffee per 5 oz. of water (1:17 coffee-to-water ratio). For example, our brewer today will produce 34 fl oz. (1000ml), so you would need 58 grams of ground coffee. If you don’t have a scale, 1 heaping tablespoon per 5 oz cup will work.

Step 2 – Wet your filter and add ground coffee

Run a small amount of water through your coffee filter to eliminate any paper taste. Pour ground coffee into the filter and shake lightly to level the coffee bed.

Step 3 – Add water to your brewer’s reservoir tank

Every machine will vary, so check your brewer’s manual to see how many ounces each cup is equal to.

Step 4 – Start brewing

Turn on or push to start coffee brewing. The total brew time should be between 4-6 minutes.

Step 5 – Remove the coffee filter

When it’s finished remove the filter with coffee to prevent any dripping onto your machine or counter.

Step 6 – Pour and enjoy!
