STEP 1

Pour cold water in the reservoir to the desired level based on the number of cups you'd like. We'll be brewing a full pot for this guide and pouring in 8 cups of cold water.

STEP 2

Using a scale, place a small vessel on top, then tare before adding the whole beans. For the full pot recipe, we'll be measuring out 80 grams of coffee.

STEP 3

Pour the measured whole beans into the grinder. Grind to medium size.

STEP 4

Place the paper filter in the brew basket. Optional: quickly rinse off any paper taste by pouring warm water over the filter. Don't forget to empty the carafe below before moving on.

STEP 5

Pour the ground coffee into the filter basket. Gently shake to even the coffee placement in the filter basket.

STEP 6

Move the carafe under the shower head and press on.

STEP 7

Let the coffee machine work its magic. When the brew cycle is complete, grab your favorite mug and enjoy! The coffee will stay toasty for about 1 to 2 hours.

PRO TIP: Don't forget to periodically deep clean your brewer, especially if you're using it every day!
