We've put together our go-to guides for the most popular brewing methods, these are by no means set in stone, nor can we promise a perfect result each and every time. What we can do however is provide you with a great foundation for a good brew, and allow for a bit of wiggle room and your own experimentation.
Clever Coffee Dripper:
What you need:
- Clever Coffee Dripper (CCD)
- CCD paper filter
- 250 grams filtered water
- Kettle – Regular / Temperature Control
- 15g of Coffee beans (Recommended) / Medium-coarse ground coffee
- Serving mug
Before we start:
- Heat up the water to 93°C. If you are using a conventional kettle without a thermometer, boil the water and allow it to settle for 1.5mins.
- Fold the paper filter along the fold line to ensure a snug fit in the CCD.
- Place the paper filter into the CCD and onto the decanter. Pour hot water to rinse the paper filter and heat up the brewing vessel.
- Unless pre-ground, grind your coffee to medium coarse grind size.
- Weigh out 15g of ground coffee.
- Tare the scale.
The recipe that we will be using today follows a 1:16 brew ratio – 15 grams of ground coffee to 250 grams of filtered water.
Step 1 – Pouring
Pour 250 grams of water into CCD first, then, the ground coffee. Start your timer.
Step 2 – Agitation
Agitate the coffee by giving it a gentle stir in a circular motion five times, then cover the CCD with its lid.
Step 3 – Brewing
Allow the coffee to steep for 2 minutes 30 seconds.
Step 4 – Extraction
Once the time is up, place the CCD on the decanter to extract. The draw down process will take about a minute, bringing up the the total brewing time to 3:15 – 3:30.
Step 5 – Enjoy!
Remove the CCD and give the decanter a good swirl before pouring the coffee into a serving mug. Enjoy the delicious cup of brewed coffee!
