The last one of this 5 video series. We want to thank Hannah Radcliff and Edward for shooting and editing this series.

We would like you to view the series as a brewing arc and as a framework for your own coffee discovery and exploration. We see these specific recipes in the French Press, V60 and Chemex videos as starting points, much like the initial conditions in a game of Clue. These are baseline parameters (and ones we rely on often in the shop) for brewing, just like in the game of Clue there are baseline clues for starting the game, which after some iteration, the Who of Who Done it and with What and Where are discovered.

For instance, assume there exists an equation that defines an 'excellent' cup of coffee. Further suppose that equation looks something like:

Amount of Coffee + Amount of Water + Amount of Surface Area + Water Temperature + Type of Water + Brewing Device + Type of Bean + Degree of Roast + Date of Roast + Amount of Time = Excellent Cup

Then these videos are the beginning of a discussion of such an equation, wherein you start at x and iterate to y and then to z and then to x' by varying a single variable and observing what each change creates, ultimately letting your senses drive you to your ultimate end (provided you interject a health dose of social consciousness -like treating people fairly (whether farmers, baristas, etc.) in sourcing your beans, as well as considering the environment (recycle) around you (tangent feeling I know).
