Brew Guide

You’ll Need:


  1. Consult the measurement chart (below) and turn on hot water maker to begin heating ample water
  2. Consult the measurement chart; weigh out the precise amount of coffee
  3. Grind coffee to medium particle size (see settings on Grind page) in the amount needed just prior to brewing
  4. If applicable, pre-wet filter paper with hot water to assist the extraction process
  5. Place ground coffee in the filter and level
  6. Set the pourover device on top of the scale. With the filter and coffee in place, tare the scale to 0
  7. Ensuring the water is precisely 199˚F, start the timer and pour the appropriate quantity of water (consult the measurement chart) in a circular motion onto the coffee bed, ensuring that all grounds are wet
  8. After the initial pour, wait 45 seconds and watch the coffee bloom and de-gas, as the coffee flavors are extracted
  9. As the aromas emerge, consult the scale and every 30 seconds continue to add between 1 and 4 ounces of water depending on your brew volume. Aim to have all water poured in 3 minutes, spread evenly across 7 equal pours, until the proper volume of water has been added. This can be accomplished with careful measurement or a little practice
  10. Let the water drain completely through the coffee
  11. This process may take a total brew time of up to 3 minutes and 45 seconds
  12. Allow the coffee to cool for at least 1 minute before enjoying
