Filter coffee

Your brew guide for the perfect filter coffee

Welcome to our brew guide for filter coffee! Here we will show you how you can brew delicious coffee in three steps.

Whether you're new to coffee or an experienced barista, this brew guide will help you hone your skills and brew great coffee every time.

Everything you need


1. Adjust the mill

If using whole beans , set the grinder to a medium setting . If the grains are too coarse, the coffee will be under-extracted, while if the grains are too fine, the coffee will be over-extracted.

2. Heat up water

Heat the water to a temperature between 90-96°C. Water that is too hot can burn the coffee, while water that is too cold will not adequately extract the coffee.

3. Place paper filters

Insert the paper filter into the coffee maker or hand filter and rinse it with hot water. This removes the paper taste and brings the filter to the correct temperature.

4. Measure the amount of coffee

How much coffee you need depends on your coffee machine and the desired strength. A good rule of thumb is 60 grams of coffee per liter of water or 15 grams of coffee per 250 ml of water.

5. Grind coffee beans

If using whole beans, grind the coffee beans to a medium grit. Only make as much coffee as you will drink within 20 minutes to maintain freshness.


1. Pour coffee into the filter

Put the ground coffee in the paper filter. Shake the filter lightly to distribute the coffee.

2. Pre-infusion

Pour a little hot water over the coffee and let it brew for 30 seconds. This is called pre-brewing and helps the coffee brew more evenly.

3. Pour slowly

Pour the remaining water slowly and evenly over the coffee. Make sure you pour the water evenly over the coffee so that all the coffee beans are soaked evenly.

4. Waiting time

Wait about 3-4 minutes for the coffee to completely brew. Check the strength of the coffee to decide whether it should be brewed longer or shorter.

5. Serve

Pour the coffee into a cup or pot and enjoy it hot.


Use clean water

Water is an important component of your coffee, so make sure to use clean and fresh water, ideally filtered.

Clean your equipment regularly

Keep your coffee machine and accessories clean to ensure optimal performance and taste.

Use high quality coffee

Always use freshly roasted, high-quality coffee. Avoid stale coffee or coffee that has been sitting in the open package for a long time.
