For the traveling coffee enthusiast, this is a god-send. Designed to fit on top of almost any cup, mug, or even carafe. It replaces standard paper filters and it can be used over and over again. It is eco- friendly and practical, with the added benefit of brewing a more robust cup of coffee with more body to the taste.
Step 1: Measuring
The most flexible part of coffee making, and arguably the one that affects the taste most. For a medium strength coffee, you should measure out 1.75 tablespoons per (5oz) coffee cup. If you’re using whole beans it will be about 8.75 gram. Check our calculator for more details.
Tip: The best grind for a drip coffee would be a medium grind about the texture of sea salt. Use a burr grinder for the best results.
Step 2: Blooming
This is by far the most overlooked step in coffee brewing. Spoon your ground coffee into the filter (give it a little shake to flatten it out). Then gently pour twice the amount of water that you have coffee – for example, 40 grams of water if you have 20 grams of coffee. This will make your coffee expand a process called blooming, releasing the most desirable flavors from the grounds. Let sit for about 30 seconds.
Tip: Use filtered water for the best tasting coffee.
Step 3: Pouring
Continue pouring, slowly, delicately into the center of the grounds. Use a circular, or gentle back and forth motion. Be careful not to pour too much water at once, the coffee grounds should never swim.
Tip: Each (5oz.) cup of coffee should take approximately a minute and a half to brew.
Step 4: Discard the grounds
Once the coffee finishes brewing take out the filter and throw out the used grounds.
Tip: To ensure long lasting results, clean the filter out with water immediately after use. If you see that the holes are starting to get clogged, wash with a mixture of water and baking soda. After many uses, the filter can get clogged and the brewing time slows down, try using our Osaka Cleaning Solution for best results.
