How to brew with your new pour over coffee maker
Items included for brewing:
- Metal frame
- brewing tube
- Aluminum brewing tip
- Stainless steel filter screens of different mesh size
- 1 rubber ring for the main tube
Bring to a boil twice as much water as you’ll need for the actual brewing (around 600-700 ml).
Weigh out about 42-56 grams of coffee (or approximately three to four tablespoons of whole beans).
While the water is heating, grind your coffee. The coarseness should be close to that of sea salt. Recommend a courser grind for easier extraction and flow through the tube. Finer grinds will create slower brew styles sense the water has to flow through the tube. Also finer grinds will create a stronger brew. You can over compensate with more of a courser grind too for faster flows.
Pour your ground coffee into the tube and give it a gentle shake. This will flatten the bed, allowing for a more even pour.
Start by gently pouring twice the amount of water that you have coffee into your grounds – for example, 50 grams of water if you have 25 grams of coffee. You’ll notice that adding this amount of water causes the coffee to “bloom” and expand. Allow it to do so for between 30 and 45 seconds. A solid bloom will ensure even water dispersion.
Continue pouring. You should pour at such a rate that the complete brew process takes about two and a half to three minutes. All told, it should be about 350 grams of water depending on cup size.
Start with a clean brewing tube and make sure the aluminum tip is securely inserted into the tube. Next, drop the course stainless steel filter disk into the tube followed by the fine filter disk.
Fill tube with about 42-56 grams of coffee (or approximately two to three tablespoons of whole beans).
You should pour at a rate that will complete brew process in about two and a half to three minutes. All told, it should be about 350 grams of water.
