1 It is important that your Jitters & Bliss coffee be ground to medium-fine, with a quality burr grinder for an even grind. This allows for a slower and more even extraction, resulting in a fuller bodied and more nuanced cup.
2 Place the cone on a "waste" cup. Place a #2 (we like Melitta) filter inside the cone. Run hot water
through the filter to rinse out any residual paper flavor and preheat the cone
itself. Allow the water to drain out completely before moving the cone to your
3 We recommend 23 grams of fresh ground coffee
(0.8 oz or about three rounded tablespoons) to make 8 oz of brewed coffee.
4 Bring the water just to a boil. We like an electric kettle. For 8 oz of brewed coffee you will want
to use 12 oz hot water total for the two pours. First, pour just enough into
the cone so that it saturates the grounds and very little is dripping into your
cup. The key is to saturate all the grounds evenly by moving the stream around
as you pour.
5 After about 15 seconds, pour the
rest of the water. Pour at an even rate, in a spiral or back-and-forth pattern
in order to break down the bloom (fresh coffee giving off carbon dioxide), and saturate all grounds evenly. The color of
the surface should be even with as few dark or blond spots as possible.
6 Once you have 8 oz of brewed coffee in your
cup, quickly move the cone to the waste cup and allow it to drain completely.
