step 1

Fold the filter along the bonded seams and insert into the Clever brewer. Rinse the filter with hot water. Leaving the filter in place, discard the water.

step 2

Weigh out 20 grams (about 2 rounded tablespoons) of whole beans. Grind the beans to a medium-coarse consistency.

step 3

Pour the ground coffee into the filter, giving a gentle shake to settle the grounds. Place the Clever onto your scale and tare to ‘0 grams.’

step 4

Allow your water to reach a boil, and then wait 45-60 seconds. Start a timer. Carefully pour 300 grams (10 oz) of brewing water over the grounds. Let stand for 30 seconds, allowing the coffee to absorb the water. Give a quick, gentle stir to evenly immerse the grounds into the brew. Cover the Clever with its lid.

step 5

At 2 minutes, set the Clever atop a mug to release the brew. This process should take about 1-1:30 minutes.

step 6

Remove and discard the filter and brewed grounds. Drink up!
