Home Brewing Guide to the Clever

The Clever is one of the easiest ways to make a great tasting cup of coffee at home. It uses immersion brewing to give you a full-bodied cup of coffee with no sediment. We think it produces the most flavourful cup of coffee.

What you need:

Clever brewer | Filter | Coffee | Grinder | Scale or Measuring Spoon | Filtered Water | Kettle | Timer | Spoon | Coffee Mug (12 oz)


Step 1:

Place the filter in the Clever dripper. Pour boiled water to the top and let it drain through over an empty coffee mug - this will remove the “papery” taste from the filter.






Step 2:

Grind 22g (approx. three rounded tbsps) of coffee on a medium grind. Pour the grinds into the filter and tap the sides to even out the coffee bed.





Step 3:

Tare your scale and pour just enough water of the grinds to saturate them (about 75g).





Step 4:

Stir gently to make sure all of the grinds are saturated with water.






Step 5: 


Pour the remaining water (a total of 350g) into the filter so it just about full and the coffee is completely saturated.





 Step 6:

 Place lid on the brewer and set timer for 2 minutes 30 seconds.





Step 7:

Set the brewer on a coffee mug to drain into the cup.






 Step 8:

The filter and grinds can go into the compost. Rinse out the Clever for next time and enjoy your cup of coffee!
