Brew The Perfect Cup
To brew the perfect cup of Bottom Gun coffee you will need:
- Kitchen scale
- 22 grams of normal grind coffee
- 355 mL water
Heat the water to 200-205 degrees in a kettle, or simply bring water to a boil and allow it to sit for 30 seconds. Some may prefer slightly before boil:
A: Place glass brewer on your scale and zero out your weight. B: Rinse the filter with hot water to remove any papery taste.
A: After double checking weight at zero, take freshly ground coffee and add desired amount to the filter(if the scale is zeroed you can precisely measure your coffee to desired taste for daily consistent brewing.
B: Once coffee amount is precise, re-zero your weight and prepare stopwatch timer.
C: Start timer and pour 50-60 grams of water over the entire bed of coffee to top of coffee line. Be sure to thoroughly wet the coffee grounds and if desired stir top bloom.
After 30 seconds while first 50-60 grams are completing filtering, slowly pour roughly 80-100 grams of water in, starting in the middle and moving outward in an even rotation ending at the edges. Make sure you pour slow and your circles are displaced evenly. When the water drains through, your bed of coffee should lay flat and not concave.
At roughly 1 minute, pour in more water to reach a total of 250 grams in the same method as previously advised.
At 1:30ish pour in more water to reach 355-400 grams. After it drains slightly, gently swirl/shake the brewer to settle the coffee bed for even extraction. Water should disappear entirely at 2:30 - 2:45 (if not, adjust grind to be of larger grain). Stir coffee and add desired additional creame or chocolate before drinking.
