Brewing Guides

Each Spiller & Tait Brewing Guide offers our Top Tips for brewing great tasting coffee.  With such a wide range of home brewing methods to chose from, we've focused on those which can be found in most households in the UK, Europe and the USA and which we are confident can deliver a great cup of coffee in less than 5 minutes.

Occasionally our guides deviate from the manufacturer's brewing suggestions.  Having used all the devices for many years, we are confident our guides help create the best results and sometimes our steps are designed to over-come short-comings we've discovered in a device.

Please remember, brewing coffee is as much art as it is science.  As such, our Top Tip (above all others) is to encourage you to experiment with different devices and tweak the variables which effect flavour (e.g. grind fineness, brew time) until you achieve an approach which yields the best taste for you.
