    Begin Brewing

    1. Fold your paper filter along the seams. This will ensure that your filter fits snug into your clever dripper.

    2. Preheat your equipment. Place the paper filter into your Clever Dripper and pour hot water to saturate it to remove any paper taste from the filter. Discard the hot water into your cup. Preheating will maintain an even temperature while brewing for more consistent extraction.

    3. Pour 22 Grams of coffee into the filter. Shake the filter to level the grounds flat.

    4. “Bloom” the coffee. Add double the weight of your coffee (45 Grams) in water over the grounds and allow them to sit for 15 seconds. Start your timer.

    5. At 15 seconds, pour water in continuous circles until the scale reads 380 Grams.

    6. Gently stir the grounds with a spoon and cover your clever dripper with a lid.

    7. At three minutes stir the grounds again. Place the Clever Dripper on top of your mug to release the brew. Toss the filter out after all coffee has been decanted.

     8. Enjoy!
