What is the mud coffee trend?

Mud coffee is a brewing method that is probably one of the most basic I've heard of. It starts by measuring out your coffee and putting it at the bottom of your mug, you'll then add hot water to fill it up and let it steep long enough for all the coffee to settle at the bottom of the cup (hopefully). This brewing method will allow all of the oils from the beans to stay in your cup causing a richer flavor. Although I have not tried this method yet it has peeked my interest. If you would like to try it for yourself here's how to do it:


How to Brew Mud Coffee


Coffee dosage- I have been using a 1:17 coffee to water ratio. For this recipe, I used 14 grams of coffee and 250 mL of water.


Grind Size- I found coffee ground on the finer side of pour-over brewing to be my favorite for this method. If you come to one of our stores to grind your coffee, have it ground at a 2 setting. However, grinding the coffee a little coarser (the finer side of French press) does make it a little easier to navigate the grinds when you get to the bottom of the cup.


Water Temperature- Around 205 degrees Fahrenheit.


Brewing Guide

  1. Grind 14 grams of coffee (see above for grind size) and put into the bottom of a mug or glass.

  2. Pour 250 mL of hot water (205 degrees Fahrenheit) on top of the ground coffee.

  3. Stir the mixture with a spoon and wait for the beverage to cool.

  4. As the coffee cools, the grounds should sink to the bottom.

  5. At around the 6 minute mark, the grounds should have migrated to the bottom of the mug. Your coffee should have also cooled to a point where it is enjoyable to drink.

  6. Enjoy!
