Notes

*I recommend freshly grinding your own beans for the richest flavor. You can do this in most major grocery stores or use your own grinder. You don't need to buy fancy expensive beans either!
*Use a coarse grind of beans. You can buy beans ground coarsely ground or grind your own on the coarse setting.
