  • Tare scales again.
  • Pour in calculated amount of water off the boil (88 to 93deg) and stir well to ensure all coffee is wet, place a saucer over the top to stop steam and aroma escaping.
  • Let sit for a total of approx 2.5minutes.
  • Remove saucer and use 2 soup spoons to scoop off floating coffee crust – this will stop the coffee from over-extracting and becoming bitter or sour.
