Start

Step 1

Weigh 20g of coffee, grind it to a coarse grind size; to the consistency of cracked pepper.

Step 2

Place the filter paper into the Clever. Pour freshly boiled water through the filter paper; this will get rid of the slight paper taste.

Place the Clever onto the server to activate the valve, releasing the water.

Discard the water and add the ground coffee.

Step 3

Start your timer and slowly pour 40g of water over the coffee grinds; try to avoid pouring down the sides of the filter paper.

The coffee will begin to “bloom” (increase in size); this is the trapped CO2 gas created during the roasting process departing.

Let the bloom sit, never allowing to dry out.

Step 4

Before the bloom dries, pour the water into the centre of the Clever in slow yet steady stream, for a total of 330g.

Allow the coffee to brew.

Step 5

At 2min 30sec place the Clever onto the server, opening the valve, allowing the coffee to pass through the filter.

Enjoy.
