How to - Strong Brew

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Preparation:

    • Gather the Strong Brew, filter papers, medium-fine ground coffee, and a scoop.
  2. Assembling:

    • Identify the upper handle section, silicone plunger, storage lid, lower handle, and helix chamber.
    • Align the marks on the helix chamber and lower handle, and twist to assemble.
    • Wet the filter paper and place it in the lower section.
  3. Coffee Loading:

    • Add 15g of coffee to the helix chamber, shake to flatten the bed.
    • Add 3x the amount of water as coffee (e.g., 45g), stir, and let it bloom for 30 seconds.
  4. Adding Hot Water:

    • Top up with hot water towards the top of the helix chamber, leaving a centimetre at the top.
    • Align the upper section with the helix chamber and press down.
  5. Brewing:

    • Allow it to brew for the desired time.
  6. Plunging:

    • After brewing, apply downward pressure and start twisting for 30 seconds.
    • If water seepage occurs, release pressure, and slowly start plunging again without reversing.
  7. Finishing:

    • As you approach the bottom of the plunge, listen for the air pressure release, and stop.
    • Shake the Strong Brew to prevent drips and enjoy your coffee as a short black or top up for a longer coffee.
