Training Log #6 by Muhammad Fakhri - Introducing a new Drip Brewer

Posted by GenovaWebArt Collaborator on


The Werkudara Dripper,  I want to introduce Werkudara Dripper. This dripper is a collaboration between me and Andi Widjaya from Someday Somehow Bandung. This dripper was inspired by Kalita Wave, Kaliadja Dripper made by Cubung Hanito from Wisang Kopi Jakarta, and April Dripper developed by Patrik Rolf. This dripper has a semi immersion concept with three holes of design that can be replaced. The design was created for the flow rate needed by the brewers for their coffee extraction. I can't talk much about this dripper because it will be used for the Indonesia brewers cup next year. Hopefully, the results will be satisfying, and I can continue to introduce them to the world stage

Training Log #5 by Muhammad Fakhri - Which is your favorite Coffee Grinder?

Posted by GenovaWebArt Collaborator on


  1. Which is your favorite grinder? My favorite grinder is the Comandante C40 Nitro Blade. The reason for that is that it is straightforward to use and is easy to travel with. The results of the grinder are also precise, and even I dare to compare it with EK43. This conical burr the grinder is capable of producing particles with excellent consistency.   3. What do you do when you want to test different grinders? To compare and test several grinders, I try to brew one coffee of the same origin with almost the same grind size between each grinder and then see the results. I will choose the most exciting results with a relatively good complex level. After...

Training log #4 by Muhammad Fakhri - My current competition brewing recipe

Posted by Bhavin​ Metizsoft on


My Current Competition Brewing Recipe:  The coffee that I used in WBrC 2019 is Finca Deborah Afterglow. This coffee is fromPanama, located in Boquete, Chiriqui Province. Managed by Jamison Savage as the producers. This coffee has a light roast profile and roasted for 5 minutes in ikawa with roasting development is 18%. My roaster chose this profile to balance the acidity and the mouthfeel. The longer development time helps to improve the complexity and sweetness while maintaining the floral aroma from this coffee.The brewing device that I used is V60 Dripper, wherein the dripper can distribute water more evenly and centrally so that flavor becomes more clean, complex, andpronounced. The dripper made from plastic does not absorb heat so the...

Training Log by Muhammad Fakhri - How to understand Customer Service in Brewers Cup

Posted by Bhavin​ Metizsoft on


How does a Homebrewer like me learn aspects of customer service in the Brewers Cup? Because I have never worked as a barista (until now), I have never known what basic services should be provided to customers, so they feel comfortable. And when I decided to enter the competition, I was a little confused when learning the Customer Service aspects because I had never felt behind bars before. Even friends often scare me that it will be difficult to get a good Customer Service because I have a scary face, rarely smile, like to frown, etc. Then in order to get good results in this aspect, I tried to go around the coffee shop and sit in front of the...

Training Log by Muhammad Fakhri - How Expensive is it to compete?

Posted by Bhavin​ Metizsoft on


How Expensive Is It To Compete? At the end of 2016, when I decided to join the IBrC (Indonesia Brewers Cup). I realized that as a homebrewer, we must have our competition tools because it is different from a barista who can use the equipment in his shop to be used in competition. Then I started to save money and every month when I got my salary I used to buy equipment one by one. From the start of purchase kettle, dripper, then scale, to hand grinder like Comandante. The total price of all the tools that I have is around 1050 USD. For approximately 1.5 years, I used to buy the tools needed in the competition. Even when I...

Training Log by Muhammed Fakhri - What is your favorite Brew Method?

Posted by Bhavin​ Metizsoft on


What is your favorite Brew Method, and why?My favorite brewing tools are Hario V60 and Kalita Wave. I like V60 because this dripper can distribute water more evenly and centrally so that extraction can be more maximized and the resulting flavor becomes more clean, complex, and pronounced. I also liked Kalita Wave because this dripper has an immersion function so that it can maximize extraction and consistency when it is Brewing. The shape of the Kalita filter paper like cupcake also helps to prevent the coffee powder from coming into direct contact with the dripper wall so that thethe temperature of the water used remains hot.What do you recommend a Home Brewer should think about if they want to make...
