4:6 Method - Invented by 2016 World Brewers Cup Champion Tetsu Kasuya
1. Grind coffee to a coarse size
2. Use a 1:15 coffee to water ratio. Multiply the amount of coffee grams you would like to use by 15 to determine the correct amount of water to use.
Example: 25 grams of coffee x 15= 375 grams of water
3. Boil water
The 4:6 method involves dividing the total water weight into 40% and 60%
The first 40% controls the flavor profile of the coffee and will be poured in two separate pours.
The remaining 60% controls the body of the coffee and will be poured in three separate pours.
You pour the first 40% in two pours, and then decide how many pours you want to make for the last 60%.
The first 2 pours decide the balance of the acidity and sweetness.
The remaining number of pours will decide the strength of the coffee. We recommend starting with 3 at first.
Allow approximately 45 seconds between each pour, or until you see grounds.
Using the above example, one would initially pour 5 pours or 75 grams each, and then adjust from there.
Total brew time should be +/- 3:30 minutes.
