Number 2-size Coffee Filter Cone, with a 2 to 6-cup capacity, is designed for making the best coffee using the manual, pour over coffee method. Making coffee in smaller amounts results in a more aromatic and flavorful brew, with every single cup. Brew only what’s needed for less waste. The most time-tested of Japanese coffee brewing methods, called pour over, hand pour or hand drip coffee, was developed to brew the best tasting coffee, allowing complete control over its quality and flavor. This coffee pour over method for brewing coffee is accomplished by pouring a thin, slow, steady stream of water over the ground coffee. Coffee Filter Cones are used to make good coffee the pour over coffee way. For a perfect brew, place the Coffee Filter Cone over a mug or carafe. Insert a paper or reusable coffee filter and measure in medium-grind coffee, or grind whole beans fresh (approximately 2 rounded tablespoons of ground coffee per 8-ounces of water, or to desired taste). Using just-boiled water, wet all of the grounds slightly and let wet grounds stand to bloom coffee for 15 to 30 seconds. When grounds mix with water, they expand slightly and release more flavor. Slow and precise water flow is critical to extracting the most flavor with this pour over coffee maker. Pour the remaining hot water, slowly and evenly, from the center of the grounds outward, in a circular motion. Allow the coffee dripper to finish dripping. Total brew time should take about 2 ½-minutes. Remove the coffee maker from the mug and discard the wet grounds. Drink the fresh-brewed coffee immediately or let it chill to make coffee drinks. This Coffee Brewing Filter Cone is a must-have among coffee accessories and makes great coffee gifts for at-home baristas. And, this non-breakable, reusable coffee filter cone is the perfect portable coffee maker for coffee lovers who like to travel. Easy to use and easy to clean, it’s dishwasher safe for easy cleanup.
