How To Make Coffee With The Clever Coffee Dripper ?

CLEVER DRIPPER RECIPE: This brewer is among our favorites for pour-over brewing due to its simplicity and the exceptional quality of coffee it produces. Follow these Clever Dripper instructions to experience it for yourself.

Here’s how to make coffee with the Clever Coffee Dripper:

Step 1: Grind Your Coffee And Heat Your Water.

CLEVER DRIPPER RECIPE: Before you begin brewing, you need to grind your coffee beans. Almost every brewing guide calls for a 1:15 coffee-to-water ratio and we’re no exception. Using the larger 18 oz model, our Clever coffee dripper instructions call for 23g of coffee and 345g of water.

The remaining 15g of water is used for pre-rinsing the filter.

Using your scale, measure out 23 grams of coffee beans and grind your coffee to a medium-coarse grind. Your Clever dripper grind size should be similar to a French press, but slightly finer.

Next, heat 400 grams of water to a temperature of 195ºF – 200ºF.

Step 2: Prep Your Brewer.
Fold your paper filter along the seams and place it in the dripper. Pre-rinse the filter with hot water to preheat the brewer, eliminate any paper taste, and preheat your mug. Discard the rinse water.

Step 3: Place The Dripper On The Scale And Add Your Grounds.
Put the dripper on your scale, add the ground coffee, and tare the scale to zero.

Step 4: Pour Water And Let The Coffee Bloom.
Pour enough water (about 50g) to saturate the coffee grounds and let it bloom for 30 seconds. Then, pour the remaining 345g of water quickly over the grounds.

Step 5: Break The Crust.
After 2 minutes of brewing, gently stir the coffee to break up the crust and ensure all grounds are contributing to the brewing process.

Step 6: Let Your Coffee Draw Down.

Almost there! Place your Clever atop your mug and watch that oh so clever draining valve activate, beginning the draw down process.

And now we wait for the coffee to drain until the coffee bed is level. The total draw down process should take about 1-1.5 minutes, leading to a total brew time of 3-3.5 minutes.
