The Simple Ways to Brew Rasa
To make it super easy for you to understand how to brew our adaptogenic coffee substitute, Rasa Koffee, we've made this short video for you.
Watch me, Lopa—Rasa Mama & proud founder—brew Ground Rasa in a French Press (or in a mason jar if you don't own a french press) and Whole Rasa on the stove.
Plus some footage of me attempting a handstand, and failing, at 8-months pregnant! 😝
We had so much fun making this for you and hope you'll find it helpful!
Here's some other brewing information you may find helpful.
Most people will boil their Rasa on the stove for 10-15 minutes, then strain it and keep in a mason jar in the fridge to drink hot or cold.
To get the maximum amount of Rasa from your sacred herbs you can add another tbsp of Rasa and re-brew the herbs for up to 20 minutes.
In a French Press, put one Tbsp of herbs per cup & fill with freshly boiled water and let steep for 10-15 minutes.
You can also use a percolator or any coffee maker that uses pressure, like a Moka pot, espresso machine, Aeropress, percolator, or Keurig (with reusable K-cups).
If you don’t have any of those you can use a disposable tea bag! The key is you just want to have Rasa in hot water, covered, for 10-15 minutes, and use a very fine mesh strainer to strain it so you don’t get a bunch of bits in your Rasa!
Then, put on your experimental hat and think of ways you can make your Rasa delicious. If you want some inspo, check out this Rasape for a nice Coco Mocha or just tinker with some of these ingredients:
Full fat cream or coconut cream, Honey or Maple syrup, Vanilla Extract, Cinnamon, cardamom or ginger, Cacao powder, Ghee or Coconut oil.
