By Jordan Michelman, Zachary Carlsen

6-The Beginner

This isn’t a coffee table book, its a dresser book. You’ll want to thumb through this as it marries the technology of design and presentation with the knowledge of history. The information of coffee often veiled behind details is presented simply and precisely.


7-The Exact-o-right

You want to be precise.

For the price.

You’ll have something very nice.

You could pay much more than twice, yet this all you need to suffice.


8-The Proper Shopper

You drink a lot of coffee. This is for you, or someone you know! 30-50% off any of our coffees when you buy 5 lbs or more!

This is the way to make it really pop!


9-The Manual

You don’t mind taking a bit of time to meditate. You like the bloom, breaking the bloom, pouring slow and steady. All these things are enthralling, but you have to be committed.

If you, or someone you know is so committed, get this.

A better version of the Hario system, it keeps it all contained.

10-The Automatic

Sometimes you just need it to be easy. This is the best coffee pot you can buy until you quadruple the price.

What do you need out of a coffee pot?

-Thermal Consistency (Hot Water) ✅

-Even Shower Head ✅

-Programmable ✅

It can also do cold brew, is easy to use, and looks sexy.

Welcome to the official MoonGoat Guide to Cold Brew at home! Here is what you need to get the job done:



  • Hot Water Kettle

  • Ice

  • Spoon

So on to the guide you’ve all been waiting for…

  1. Line the Glass jar with your Filter Bag

  2. Empty your Grounds (carefully) inside

  3. Add Water, slowly and to the top!

  4. Stir, you may need to top off with water as the grounds hydrate.

  5. Lid, and fingertip tight- no need for air.

  6. Wait, 8-16 hours depending on how full-bodied you want it!

    (These pictures were 17 hours, longer doesn't hurt!)

7. Lift out the Bag, a little to the left, a little to the right, let it rest on top until it drips the last drop.

8. Compost the grounds, perhaps the filter too.

9. Top off with Water, shake it up!

10. Filter if you want a nice clean cup, drink straight if you want to get going! (Left cup shows filtered, right shows the little bit of grit left in)


Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions, or provide feedback!

Totally Optional, but will make your coffee a bit brighter and stronger:

  • At step 3 Substitute a liter of the water for the hot stuff! Just off the boil.

  • Stir that up for a solid 30 seconds, then…

  • ICE. Stop that brewing by chilling it. Then fill with room temp water.

When you do a hot strike and a cold shock, you can shorten your time brewing by half. I have found 4-8 hours being great. This is a true overnight method.
