  1. Place filter in brewer, wet filter, and empty vessel. Add ground coffee. Tare scale, if using.

  3. Starting in the center, steadily pour in spirals out to the edge of your brewer, without touching the filter, and back. At this point, adding 400g of water. 
  4. Continue pouring slowly and gently in the center of brewer. Ultimately adding 750g of water.
