Manual brew competition

Amber and I are heading down to New York at the end of February for the Northeast Regional Barista Competition and Brewers Cup. The barista competition has been going on for quite a few years, but the Brewers Cup is new as of last year. It is a competition that celebrates brewed coffee and service. The goal is to manually brew the best cup of coffee you can.

The five variables are brew method, water temperature, grind level, coffee to water ratio, and extraction time. The brew methods must be manual and usually include the Clever, Chemex, AeroPress, French press, or a manual drip. Manual brew methods are becoming an important category in cafes, as it melds the skill and coffee knowledge of the barista with an excellent coffee.

We are featuring a monthly pour-over method in the cafe. This month we are featuring the Clever Coffee Dripper. We love the Clever because it offers two manual brew methods in one. You can set it on your mug and do a straight manual drip; controlling the extraction/steep time by the rate of pour. OR, you can set it on the counter and let it steep like a press. In the cafe, we are letting it steep for a set amount of time. The Clever is a great value, retailing at only $14.99!
