To get the perfect brew for your preferred brewing method see our helpful tips below.
The first rule to ensure your coffee tastes great is to make sure you use the correct type of blade when grinding. We recommend using only Burr Grinders and do not use blade grinders. Blade grinders do not grind the coffee beans uniformly and leave larger pieces.

Inanna is an ancient Mesopotamian goddess associated with love, fertility, beauty, sex, war, justice, and political power. The people of Mesopotamia worshipped Inanna as far back as 4000 BCE. She was known as the "Queen of Heaven" and was the patron goddess of the Eanna temple in the city of Uruk. The Assyrians identify her as the goddess Ishtar. Many anthropologists say that Inanna later morphed into the Greek Goddess Aphrodite and then the Roman Goddess Venus.
The story of Inanna's descent to the Underworld has been told and re-told since ancient times. Inanna enters the darkness of the Underworld and must strip away her embellishments and clothing piece by piece as she enters the seven gates of the Underworld, where her older sister Ereshkigal remains. Inanna is tested and must let go of who she once was - she is laid bare as she enters the seventh gate of the Underworld. Ultimately, Inanna embraces her naked and vulnerable true Self, and she emerges from the dark and rises again as the Queen of Heaven.
Inanna's myth is an ancient story. Though, it still holds deep wisdom about the transformation we all go through. Hers is the story of a woman embracing her true Self and recovering her soul - she embraced the death of her old soul and revival of her new immortal soul.

The golden waves weaved into the Crown illustrate Inannas long wavy hair - anchored by the Assyrian Star in the middle and the all-seeing eye.
