Considering a Manual Brew Program?

Posted on March 09 2014

Manual Brewing By the Numbers

If you're looking to offer something new in your cafe and have yet to introduce a manual brewing option on your menu, now is the time! More and more shops are offering Chemex and Hario V60 pour over coffee. It's a cost effective way to offer pricier single origin coffees without the waste that batch coffee can often produce. The Chemex and Hario V60 are both exceptional methods and are capable of producing one cup at a time. 

Chemex Known as a pristine coffeemaker, Chemex employs all of the chemically correct methods for brewing. It's hourglass shaped flask is made entirely of glass, a chemically inert material that does not absorb odors or chemical residues. Produces a clean, well-rounded cup and is easy to use.

Hario V60 The ever popular Hario V60 dripper is simple, stylish, and most importantly, an extremely effective way to extract the full potential of coffee. 

Not only are these methods a way to boost quality, provide an alternating wide range of single origin coffees, and keep customers interested, they foster a productive business model. Here is a look at a profit margin for this program, assuming an $8.50/lb price of green coffee and serving a 12oz cup.

Cost of Coffee (20g)  $0.37
Cup & Lid $0.18
Retail Price $3.00                        
Profit $2.45
Profit Margin 82% (Not bad!)
