AdviceTo get the most out of your freshly roasted coffee, you should have a good burr grinder, a scale, a timer and clean, filtered water.
Step 1Weight out 16 g of coffee for a single cup of 250 ml water / 32 g for 500 ml of water.
Step 2Grind the coffee on a medium-coarse setting. The grind size has a big impact on taste so experiment on your own grinder for best results. Bitter and dry: grind coarser. Sour and thin: grind finer.
Step 3Place the filter paper in the dripper and rinse it with water. Pour the coffee inside the filter paper and place it on top of a cup or server on a scale and tare.
Step 4Start a timer and pour 30/60 g water so that all the coffee is soaked and let it sit for 30 seconds to ”bloom”.
Step 5After 30 seconds, pour the remaining water slowly and steadily. Pour in a circular motion from the center outwards and back to the center again. Repeat the movement so the water flows evenly and uniformly over the coffee.
Step 6The brew should reach 250/500 g water by about 1:45 minutes. The same pour times applies for both portions. The totalt brewing time will depend on your grind setting and the bean.
Step 7Before enjoying the coffee give it a quick stir and let it cool down a little. Enjoy!
