The classic American brew method – Auto Drip – can produce excellent coffee that results in a clean, sweet and even sparkling cup.
Coffee: 9 grams
Water: 6 ounces
Grind: auto-drip or #4.5 medium
Brew Length: Automatic
- Pour very hot water through your paper filter and brew basket into the brewing carafe, removing excess paper fibers from filter. Don’t forget to dump this water out of carafe.
- Grind coffee on an auto-drip or medium grind (consistency and coarseness of sugar). Aim for 9 grams by weight of coffee per 6 oz volume of water. If you don’t have a scale, 9 grams of coffee is about 2 level tablespoons. After tasting a few brews, adjust amount of coffee grounds to your personal “strength” preference.
- Turn brewer on and add filtered water. Once finished brewing, pour into cup(s) or an insulated thermos. Leaving coffee to “stew” on a heating tray produces unpleasant flavors. Enjoy!
