How-to Brew with the Melitta

VoltageCoffee
Here's how to yield two cups of full flavored coffee from the Melitta. You can always increase the ratio respectively for brewing larger batches. The ratio is 1:17, using a medium grind, and the total brew time is 3 1/2 minutes. We will be using the pulse pourover method for this; instead of a continuous pour, we'll stop after every 100 grams of water. This will allow the water to drain. You can play around with the amount of water you pour in between pulses to dial-in the cup that suits you best.

Notes

Pro Tip: Since the Melitta is designed with a small singular hole at the bottom its easy to clog the hole with fines that filter down. To minimize this, avoid pouring to the sides of the device.
