94 CELCIUS MICRO-TORRÉFACTEUR: Mexico Alejandro Martinez


Method: Origami with wave-style flat bottom filter


What you'll need:

  • Origami dripper (plastic is preferred over ceramic)

    • If you don’t have an Origami dripper, you can use either a Kalita Wave dripper, or a V60 cone-style dripper, depending on the paper type. If the recipe calls for a wave-style filter, please use a Kalita Wave, and grind slightly coarser. If the recipe calls for a cone-style filter, please use a V60, and grind slightly coarser. 

  • Wave-style paper flat bottom filter

  • Carafe

  • Gooseneck Kettle

  • 320g of water at 94°C/201°F

  • 20g of coffee (medium grind, approx. 900 microns) 

How to make it:

  1. Start by wetting the filter in your Origami dripper.

  2. Pour the 20g of ground coffee into the Origami.

  3. Start your timer, pour 50g of the hot water in slowly and gently.

  4. At 0m30s, gently pour an additional 45g of water (to ~95g).

  5. At 0m50s, gently pour an additional 45g of water (to ~140g).

  6. At 1m10s, gently pour an additional 45g of water (to ~185g).
  7. At 1m30s, gently pour an additional 45g of water (to ~230g).
  8. At 1m50s, gently pour an additional 45g of water (to ~275g).
  9. At 2m00s, gently pour the remaining 45g of water (to ~320g).
  10. The coffee should drip through between 2m30s to 2m45s. 

Dustin’s notes: "This recipe utilizes more pulse pouring and a slightly longer brew time to bring out more sweetness and balance in the cup. The fruit notes are expressed as raisin and wine-like sweetness, and it is complemented with the dark chocolate and vanilla notes.”
