Equipment

  • 1 Gooseneck Kettle
  • 1 Coffee Dripper
  • 1 kitchen scale
  • 1 Coffee Grinder

Ingredients
  

  • 375 grams boiling water 198 degrees Fahrenheit
  • 25 grams freshly ground coffee beans

Instructions
 

  • Fill a kettle with water. A gooseneck kettle is preferred. Boil more than enough to fill your mug.
  • Grind 25 grams of your best coffee.
  • Put your dripper over your chosen mug and place a filter in the dripper. Soak it with boiling water and pour out the water.
  • Pour the ground coffee into the filter.
  • Place the mug with dripper on the scale and tare the scale.
  • Pour twice the coffee’s weight in water (50 grams) in a circular motion. Avoid the edges of the coffee bed.
  • Slowly pour 100 grams of water over the coffee in a circular motion and wait 30 seconds.
  • Slowly pour 120 grams of water in a circular motion and when the coffee bed is getting low pour the remaining 155 grams in.
  • Wait until 3 1/2 minutes has passed and then remove the filter. At this point, all the water should have gone through and the filter will be dripping slightly.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

If you get to the end and there’s still some more water you can wait another 15 seconds or note for next time to grind the beans coarser and/or pour the last 155 grams sooner.
Perfecting your recipe with your grinder, dripper and kettle is a process. It may take several times to get this just right (and a new roast may need you to make adjustments all over again!).
If you don’t have access to a scale, don’t worry.  25 grams of ground coffee equals 1/3 cup and the water used in the recipe (375 grams) equals about 11 ounces. Use these measurements in the recipe instead of the grams written.
