How to Brew — Filter Coffee

We wanted to share our simple four-step guide to brewing filter coffee. It’s a very simple but delicious way to enjoy your coffee at home. Cheers to that!

What you'll need

  • 25g (about 5tbsp) of freshly ground coffee

  • 400ml of boiled water

  • Pour over dripper

  • Filter papers

Step One

Place a paper filter in the dripper and rinse with the boiled water. This removes any papery flavour and pre-heats the server.

Discard all the water that drains through.

Step Two

Add 25g of freshly ground coffee into the cone.

Wet the coffee evenly with 50ml of hot water and wait about 30 seconds for the coffee to ‘bloom’.

Step Three

After 30 seconds, continue to slowly pour water directly onto the bed of coffee until you are 2cm from the top.

As the coffee brews through to the server, continuously pour in little circles, covering the coffee evenly; try to keep the brew height 2cm from the top at all times until you've poured the entire 400ml of water. Avoid pouring onto the side of the paper filter where possible.

Step Four

Grab your favourite mug and enjoy.
