How to Brew With the Clever Dripper
Grind - 24grams/2 heaping coffee scoops of coffee, ground for French Press
Water – 400grams/14oz water, 20-30 seconds off-boil
Filter - #4 Melitta/Filtropa filter, rinsed with about 10oz hot water
Process – (brewing on a scale is recommended, as it takes guess work and “eyeballing” out of the equation, not to mention the improved repeatability and accuracy)
Step One: Add Coffee
Place rinsed filter into Dripper and add ground coffee.
Step Two: Bloom
Start timer (from zero) and saturate the grounds with 60grams/2 ½ oz of 200-degree (F) water. Wait 30-40 seconds (take note of the aroma).
Step Three: Add Remaining Water and Cover
Add remaining 200-degree (F) water, for a total of 400grams/14oz and cover the Dripper to retain heat.
Step Four: Place on Decanter
When the timer reaches 2:40, set the Dripper on a large coffee mug or decanter (a pint glass works wonderfully) to release the stopper. Total brew time, including draw-down time, should be between 4:00-4:20.
Step Five: Serve
