Whether you prefer the coffee flavor from a French press or love a rich, strong shot of espresso as a morning pick-me-up, there’s no right or wrong way to brew your favorite coffee. It all depends on your personal preference, taste, and the quality of the beans.
At Sträva, we’re always trying out new brewing techniques for our beans. Each method brings out different tasting notes and flavors, so there’s always something exciting to look forward to.
Curious to learn how to brew the richest, most delectable cup of Sträva CBD coffee you’ve ever tried? Keep reading to find out!
Grinding the Coffee Beans
Different brewing methods require different types of grind sizes, so it’s best to buy whole beans and grind them based on the brewing method you want to use. For instance, if you want to make cold brew, you’ll need extra coarse ground beans. Coarse grind is best for the French press, and espresso requires finely ground beans.
If you love a full-bodied, rich-tasting cup of strong espresso, consider investing in a high-quality espresso machine. Espresso isn’t for people sensitive to caffeine, but if you still want to try this method with our CBD coffee, opt for the Decaf versions.
Use this brewing method if: you like your coffee strong and need a quick energy boost to wake you up.
Try it with: Sträva Maximum Strength - Medium Roast (with 20 mg of CBD per serving).
Moka Pot (Stovetop Coffee Maker)
The Moka Pot is the best way to brew espresso-style coffee with a creamy top that makes for a smooth, balanced cup of coffee. You’ll need finely ground beans, a source of heat (like a stovetop, a fire, or a hot stone), and water.
Use this brewing method if: you’re traveling, camping, or need a portable coffee maker; also, if you like the taste of espresso but don't have an espresso machine at home.
Try it with: Sträva Maximum Strength - Dark Roast (with 20 mg of CBD per serving).
The French press is one of the most popular brewing methods because of its simplicity and ease of use. Coffee from a French press is something special — the pressing of the beans releases the flavors and tasting notes slowly and the end result is a smooth, delightful cup of coffee.
Use this brewing method if: you want a full-bodied, flavorful cup of coffee with no fuss and great taste.
Try it with: Sträva Regular Strength - Medium Roast (with 10 mg of CBD per serving).
The Aeropress is a portable coffee maker that you can bring with you anywhere. It’s great for brewing coffee outdoors, but it’s also a favorite among coffee aficionados with a sophisticated palate for coffee.
Use this brewing method if: you want an easy way to make excellent coffee that brings out the best qualities and tasting notes in the beans.
Try it with: Sträva Regular Strength - Dark Roast (with 10 mg of CBD per serving).
Automatic Coffee Machines
If you have an automatic coffee machine, your only step is to put the coffee pods in and wait for the machine to do its job. This method is great for people who don’t have a lot of time in the morning and want to take their coffee to-go.
Choosing the Milk
If you like your coffee with milk or want to make cafe-style coffee at home, opt for full-fat milk to make a thick froth. Cow’s milk is the best choice for a creamy, delectable cup of coffee, but plant milks can also make a good froth if they’re fortified with fats.
We have a detailed guide on choosing the best milk for your coffee to help you decide.
