A Few Tips to Start

Pre-infusion is an important step to brewing a great pour-over. Often referred to as a “bloom,” this process releases any remaining carbon dioxide gas in the beans left over from the roasting process. To pre-infuse your coffee, you’ll want to slowly pour heated water over all the grounds in the filter, making sure they are fully saturated. Let the coffee bloom between 30 seconds and one minute before brewing.

To brew the best cup for any method, we recommend using a scale and measuring your coffee by weight. If you don't have a scale, we also provide measurements by volume so you can still brew a great cup of coffee.
