Coffee Water Temperature Brewing Time
60 g 1000 ml 92-95 C  5:30 - 7:00 min.

Materials

whole coffee beans / scale / coffee filter paper/ grinder / water heater / timer / hot water

Preparation

  1. The equipment should always be clean before brewing.
  2. Place the paper filter into the coffee receptacle, attach the thermos carafe, and clean the water reservoir of the coffee maker using 250ml of cold water.
  3. Discard this water and add 1 liter (or 1 liter/ 60 grams of coffee) of clean, filtered/drinking water into the coffee maker. Never fill the reservoir using the carafe as the coffee oils and scents stuck to it will contaminate the water.
  4. Grind 60 g (or your chosen quantity according to amount of water) of coffee beans to an appropriate coarseness.
  5. The grind for filter coffee makers is generally known as medium/filter. As a rule of thumb, the coffee should be approximately the coarseness of sand or granulated sugar.
  6. Place the coffee on the wet coffee filter paper and shake the paper to make the coffee settle. A flat bed of coffee should be prepared in the filter. However, the bed of coffee should never be pressed down.
  7. Pour hot water into the coffee maker and start your timer.
  8. If you have used a glass carafe, once brewing is completed, transfer your coffee to a thermos. Heated glass carafes cause coffee to lose its flavor and turn bitter in a very short time (max 30 minutes). In a thermos coffee can be stored up to 90 minutes.
  9. Clean your equipment as described above as soon as possible.
  10. To save time and to be ready for the next brewing, steps such as washing the filter and rinsing the water reservoir can be done in advance.
