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.
  1. Weigh out 20g of coffee for a single cup of 320g of water.
  2. Grind 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.
  3. Place 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.
  4. Start a timer and pour 40g water so that all the coffee is soaked and let it sit for 30 seconds to ”bloom”.
  5. After 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.
  6. The brew should reach 320g water by about 2:45 minutes. The same pour times apply for both portions. The total brewing time will depend on your grind setting and the bean.
  7. Before enjoying the coffee give it a quick stir and let it cool down a little. Enjoy!
