4 COFFEES FOR MIDSUMMER

Midsummer or summer solstice is a celebration of light when friends and family get together to share delicious food and drinks and enjoy themselves outside in nature often by the water. People dance and sing around bonfires and maypoles, celebrate at festivals, and cherish the longest day of the year which is on June 21st in the Northern Hemisphere.

It is the time to relax, recharge, and be happy surrounded by the people you love. Many traditions and rituals are also a part of Midsummer, observed especially in the Nordic countries, and we are creating a new one with 4 Coffees for Midsummer:

Open and brew one bag of coffee every morning two days before and two days after Midsummer and share it hot or cold with friends and family while having a good chat during the special time of the year when the Sun is at its highest position in the sky. Make a wish after enjoying each cup and miracles might happen! .

Perfect brewing recipe for Filter coffee

At the Boy and the Bear, we pride ourselves on staying ahead of the industry and having a deeper understanding of coffee extraction.

Utilizing physics and data collected by ourselves and our colleagues, we have come to the conclusion that the ideal ratio for filter is 1 gram for every 17 grams (or milliliters) of water.

Our ideal beverage yield is:
10oz or 295 grams, to achieve this, we use 20 grams of coffee and 340 grams of water.


Since our coffees are a lighter development, we recommend using water in the 201° - 203°F. And remember, the better your water = the better the coffee.

For any further help or questions, email us or visit one of our cafes and ask one of our knowledgeable staff.

Happy sipping!

Perfect brewing recipe for espresso

While espresso can be a more involved extraction, a good starting point for all of our coffees is:

1:2; 1 gram of coffee for every 2 grams (or milliliters) of water.

In the cafes, we currently use 16 grams of coffee for 34 milliliters of extracted coffee at around 30 - 32 seconds in time with ideal water quality.

Since our coffees are a slightly lighter development than most, we recommend using water around 201 - 202°F.

To trouble shoot your espresso extraction, grind your coffee finer if the espresso is sour or coarser if it is bitter to taste. To increase sweetness, increase your yield. To increase body, reduce the yield.

For any further help or questions, email us or visit one of our cafes and ask one of our knowledgeable staff.

Happy sipping!

What is the ideal resting period for brewing our coffees?

When coffee is fresh out of the roasting process, the CO2 retention is at the highest point it could possibly be at. Within the first 4 - 7 days, coffee releases 90% CO2 and 10% nitrogen from the roasting process, making 7 - 14 days off roast the peak consumption time for filter coffee.

Espresso is slightly more forgiving and can still extract incredible flavors up until 6 weeks from the initial roast date.
