How to Brew Starbucks Pike Place Coffee
Choose Your Coffee Beans
If you’re looking to brew Starbucks Pike Place coffee, you’ll want to start by selecting your coffee beans. Starbucks Pike Place is a blend of beans from Latin America, East Africa and Indonesia. You can buy beans from any of these regions, or you can get the Pike Place blend directly from Starbucks. Either way, you’ll need to grind the beans before you brew them.
Grind the Coffee Beans
When you grind your beans, you can choose how coarse or fine you want the grind to be. For Starbucks Pike Place coffee, you’ll want a medium-coarse grind. If your coffee grinder doesn’t have a setting for medium-coarse, you can go for a medium grind instead. For the best results, use a burr grinder rather than a blade grinder.
Brew the Coffee
Once you’ve ground the beans, you can start to brew the coffee. There are a few different methods for brewing coffee, but for a traditional cup of Pike Place you’ll want to brew it with a drip coffee maker. Fill the maker with cold water and add the ground beans to the filter. Then, switch on the machine and let the coffee brew into the pot.
Add Milk and Sweetener (Optional)
While you can enjoy Pike Place coffee black, many people like to add milk and sweetener. If you’re adding milk, use a small amount of whole or low-fat milk, as this will give you the best flavor. You can also add a teaspoon of sugar or a sugar substitute to sweeten the coffee.
Enjoy Your Starbucks Pike Place Coffee
Once you’ve brewed and added any additional ingredients, your Starbucks Pike Place coffee is ready to drink. Enjoy your freshly brewed cup of coffee and savor the flavor of your favorite blend.
