This is perhaps the fastest and most efficient method of brewing coffee, producing a cup somewhere between French press and Auto-drip. If you use a "gold" filter, the brew will have a presence similar to the French Press and if you use a paper filter, it will resemble auto-drip coffee. This method is also known as Melitta.
• measuring spoon
• boiling water
• brew cone (plastic or porcelain)
• correct size filter (paper, cloth, or "gold")
• finer than drip but not as fine as espresso
• one rounded Tbsp per 4 oz. water
Contact time of water with grounds
• 2-4 minutes.
• If your cup fills in less than 2 minutes or if it tastes weak, adjust the grinder to produce finer grind particle sizes.
• If it takes more than 4 minutes or it tastes too strong (or bitter), make the grind coarser.
• Pre-heat cone and cup with boiling water while grinding coffee
• Discard pre-heat water after 60 seconds and place filter inside cone and then cone on top of empty cup
• Remove water from boiling source, set aside, and add grounds to filter
• Set timer for 4 minutes and begin to slowly pour water over grounds while simultaneously stirring (stir for 5 seconds)
• Focus on adding the correct amount of water for the amount of ground coffee you use
• Be sure very little to no water remains in cone when cup is filled (which will take between 2-4 minutes)
