Start with good beans from a reputable source!
Put two tablespoons of beans in your burr mill and mill them to a medium-fine ground.
Heat water to 180-205 degrees. (82-96 degrees C) Boiling water draws out the bitter fatty acids in coffee beans, which causes the slick oil surface and bitter taste in conventionally-prepared coffee.
Bonmac #4 filters fit my dripper (the Blue Bottle brand) as well as porcelain and ceramic Bonmac first-party drippers. Good filters help preserve the flavor profile.
Pour water over grounds. Stir gently with a spoon.
Enjoy your fine cup of coffee! If this is your first time preparing it pour-over style, try it black to compare the taste. You may find you don't need as much (if any) cream.
