Grind Size


Weigh Coffee

Weigh 30g of coffee and grind on medium-fine setting, like table salt.


Rinse Filter

Heat water to 200ºF. Place filter in your pour-over device and rinse with hot water, discarding when finished.


Add Ice

Add 165g of ice to your carafe.


Add Coffee

Place the pour-over device back on your carafe, and add ground coffee.


Bloom Coffee

Start a timer and pour 30g of water to wet all the coffee grounds.


Begin Brewing

Wait 30 seconds and then pour water in a circular motion to 100g.


Pour Water

By 1:00, the water should have drained about one centimeter. Pour in a circular motion to 200g.



Repeat this process every 30 seconds, or as the water drains a centimeter, pouring water in a circular pattern until reaching a total weight of 335g.
