coffee bag recipe

The story

Brewing with coffee bag is not something new. In the Nanyang Coffee tradition, some coffee manufacturers pack Kopi-O (Robusta coffee wok-roasted with sugar and margarine or butter) in coffee filter bags for Kopi lovers to brew at home. As such, Kopi-O lovers just need to steep and remove the coffee bag with a spoon. Compared to the Japanese-style drip bag coffee, the coffee bag is easier to brew and gives a less acidic cup with fuller body (more ‘gao’).

Bean Rock Coffee Specialty Coffee Bag is an improved and healthier version of the traditional Kopi-O Coffee Bag. Instead of dark roast Robusta, we use Arabica beans of specialty grade, so you’ll get to taste a flavourful and naturally sweet coffee. Absolutely no additives added or needed! At the same time, the attached string makes the whole brewing process super clean and convenient. This is also the most important feature, because you’ll need the string to bounce!

Get bouncy with coffee bag

Toys you need

Geeky tips

  • Use a sturdy mug that can hold at least 250ml of liquid, to prevent spilling when you bounce and steep the coffee bag.
  • Brew with hot water just off the boil for the maximum extraction.
  • Adjust the bouncing amount and steeping duration according to taste preference.
  • Unlike tea, brewing coffee requires a lot more agitation of the ground particles through bouncing. Steeping the coffee bag without bouncing will result in a weak and hollow brew.

How to play

Step 1: Pour

Pour 180ml of hot water just off the boil. Let water saturate the coffee grounds in the coffee bag for 1 minute.

Step 2: Bounce & Steep

At 1:00, bounce the coffee bag up and down for approximately 80 times.

 

  • For a tea-like mouthfeel, bounce about 60x and remove the coffee bag at 5-minute mark.
  • For a thicker body (more ‘gao’), bounce as much as you like for 5 minutes and steep the coffee for a longer duration. But cap the total brew time at 10 minutes to minimise astringency.

Step 3: Remove & Serve

At 5:00, remove coffee bag from the mug. Serve as is.

About This Coffee

Farmers of the Guatemala coffee were a group of vegetables growers, planting garlic, onion, potatoes and tomatoes, before they started growing coffee. On the other hand, farmers of the Colombia coffee reside in a region with a turbulent history of political instability. No matter the circumstances, life goes on, with coffee. Just like the name of this coffee blend – Zen.

 

Versatile for anything espresso-based, Zen coffee blend is curated with balanced acidity and body in mind, to give a harmonious cup. Nothing fanciful, nothing superfluous. In other words, it’s a classic and modest coffee that helps you keep calm, and carry on.
