How To Brew - clever dripper

Clever Dripper

The Clever Dripper – a simple method of making a great filter coffee. All the wonderful flavour of a full immersion brew, all the purity of the humble pour over. It’s simpler than the V60, so if you’re new to the coffee game, it’s a great place to start. Even the cafes are starting to catch on.


RESULT

A good body with a clean taste

GOOD FOR...

Entry level pour over, simple and hard to get wrong (less likely to make a mess or scald yourself)

WHAT YOU'LL NEED

Clever Dripper funnel

Kettle

Burr grinder (optional)

Spoon

20g of freshly ground coffee per 300ml cup

Hario Kettle (optional – but helps to extract evenly)

Filter paper

Measuring spoon or scales (optional)

Cup (for waste)


DOSE, BREW TIME, ETC.

 

 

COFFEE DOSE

15g

BREW WATER

250g/ml

WATER TEMP

94oC

OVERALL BREW TIME

2:30min

GRIND SIZE

Medium to fine – similar to caster sugar

METHOD

1

Open the valve, and rinse through the paper filter.

2

Close the valve and put your coffee in the filter paper. Give it a shake to level it out.

3

Pour in all your water and stir three times, saturating all the grounds. Make sure you’re always pouring the water directly into the coffee, and not down the sides of the filter paper (this is where a Hario Kettle comes in handy!).

4

Put on the lid, and let it steep for two minutes.

5

Place your Clever Dripper on a cup or jug and open the valve.

6

Allow all the water to pass through the coffee bed.

7

If your brew’s taking longer than expected, coarsen the grind. If it zipped through too fast, try a finer grind.
