Here at the Rio Coco Café, we use four proven methods:
1) We serve our Daily Brews French Press style: Course ground coffee is steeped in 200-204 degree purified water for four minutes, then passed through a double filter to remove the coffee grounds. This is the optimum extraction of the coffee flavonoids and will generally leave a bit of sediment in the bottom.
2) Pour Over: Fine ground coffee is placed in a paper filter and holder and 200 degree water is slowly poured over the coffee in a circular motion. Within three minutes you have the smoothest cup of coffee. Available in all of our single origin coffees.
3) Espresso: Super charged steam hits finely ground coffee under pressure and extracts a dense, flavorful brew. Our macchiatos, cappuccinos, lattes, and americanos are made with our exclusive “Rio Espresso” blend.
4) Cold Brew: Coarse ground coffee is steeped in cold water for 18-24 hours, then passed through a cloth/mesh filter, resulting in a smooth, low acidic, deeply flavored coffee.
