Brewing Coffee


Drip Coffee

Everyday we brew six different coffee blends for the self-serve coffee station. Our everyday staples are Italian Roast, Papua New Guinea organic and Jamaican Me Crazy as well as a Finger Lakes Decaf. We then also have two blends that we change on a daily basis. One is flavored and the other is a single origin.

Brewing Guidelines for 1.5 Gallon Coffee Urns

We brew the Italian Roast, Papua New Guinea and the Jamaican Me Crazy in the 1.5 gallon urns. Here are the steps:

  1. Set the grinder to "auto drip" and grind 6oz of whole bean coffee. * Jamaican Me Crazy has to be 7oz.
  2. Put the coffee filter in the brew basket and pour the ground coffee in the filter. Place another coffee filter on top of the coffee. This ensure that no coffee grinds get in the brewed coffee.
  3. Set the brewer to 6 minutes of brewing. Place the brew basket in it's slot on the brewer
  4. Place an empty coffee urn beneath the brew basket and turn the lever on the brewer to "brew." Be sure to have the top removed from the coffee urn before you start brewing coffee so that the coffee doesn't spill over the urn.
  5. Place the top back on the urn before putting the urn out on the self-serve coffee station.

Repeat steps 1-5 for each coffee

BREWING GUIDELINES FOR 2.2 Liter COFFEE Airpot

We brew the Finger Lakes Decaf everyday. We alternate between a house blend or a single origin daily. Lastly, we alternate different flavors for the flavored airpot coffee.. Here are the steps:

  1. Set the grinder to "auto drip" and grind 3oz of whole bean coffee.
  2. Put the coffee filter in the brew basket and pour the ground coffee in the filter.
  3. Set the brewer to 2.8 minutes of brewing. Place the brew basket in it's slot on the brewer
  4. Place an empty coffee airpot beneath the brew basket and turn the lever on the brewer to "brew." Be sure to have the top removed from the airpot before you start brewing coffee so that the coffee doesn't spill over it. Also, be sure that the brewer is set to 2.8 minutes before brewing.
  5. Place the top back on the airpot before putting it out on the self-serve coffee station.
