It’s well known that batch brew has taken over Australia. Coffee enthusiasts everywhere can appreciate the simplicity and taste of slow drip coffee. Its revival has sparked an arms race in brewing methodologies of recent years, with the digitization in brewing technology, bringing an invention as old and rudimentary as the wheel into the present age.
The question often posed is whether batch brew is a step backwards for speciality coffee. The answer lies in the eye of the beholder, or the taste of the coffee drinker. Myriad ratios, grinds and bean varieties have profound effects on the taste of the brew. Cheap to make, and with its simple method, batch brewing is considered by many a craft to be admired.
