Ratio: 1:2 . Let your basket size determine coffee amount, then multiply by 2 for beverage weight). At Mikko we use 18.5g per shot which yields a beverage of 37g.

Time: 28 seconds. If your shot is too fast, grind finer. If it's too slow, grind coarser.

Use this as your starting point. Then adjust one variable at a time to your liking.

We recommend a 1:16 ratio with a medium grind. No scale? No problem, just go with your instinct. If you're using a manual pourover brewer, aim to complete your pour in about 2 minutes. We like to give it a gentle swirl to maximize evenness of extraction. However, this can also backfire and cause a huge mess. You've been warned!
