Channi Coffee Brewing Guides

 Easy and cheap, channi coffee is great for people who are new to brewing coffee at home and don't have any equipment. All you need is a tea strainer! This method is particularly well-suited for people who are looking to switch from instant coffee but don't want to invest in brewing gear just yet. 

What you’ll need:

  • 14g (approximately 7 teaspoons) coffee in coarse, channi grind 
  • Channi / Strainer
  • Cup
  • 140ml water (½ cup + 1 tablespoon) at 94°C (approximately 1:50 minutes off the boil)
  • Kettle
  • Scales, if possible, otherwise follow eye measurements
  • Muslin cloth, if possible

Brewing recipe:

  • Add 14g coffee to your cup.
  • Add 130ml hot water. 
  • Leave for 4 minutes.
  • At 4 minutes, stir 10 times. 
  • Pour brew through channi into another cup. 
  • Add more of the remaining hot water, or milk to your preference.

Pro tips:

  • Use a 4 minute brew time for light to medium roasts. 
  • Use a 3:30 minute brew time for medium dark to dark roasts or natural processed coffees. 
  • Use less than 3:30 minutes for very dark roasts. 
  • If you feel like your coffee has a lot of grit or coffee powder in it, then add a muslin cloth over the channi. Alternatively, grind your coffee coarser.
