Preparation Guide

Goodson knows just how to brew the good stuff. Here are a few tips for better brewing.

Coffee making is potentially intimidating. Just a few simple steps will help you brew a perfect cup of Goodson Bros. coffee.

Shop Smart

It's ideal to buy a one-week supply of whole beans, storing the beans in an airtight container for freshness. Store at room temperature to maintain the best flavor. Resist the urge to keep those beans in the freezer!

Water Well

Water is 90 percent of the perfect cup of coffee. Make sure it is fresh, filtered and free of tastes and odors.

Nose to the Grindstone

It's best to grind the beans just before brewing. (Don't worry, lots of people use pre-ground coffee to save time.) Grind the beans finer for a faster brew cycle.

Best Brew

Use a ratio of about 2 tablespoons of coffee for each three-fourths cup of water.

Various types of pots may require slightly different ratios.  For example, a drip filter is best with about one cup of ground coffee for 10 cups of fresh water. For plunger coffee makers, use about one tablespoon of coffee per cup of water. Make sure the water is hot but not boiling. Stir and wait 3-4 minutes before plunging halfway, then another minute before plunging to the bottom.


It's best to drink the coffee within 30 minutes for optimum flavor. Sit back and smile.
