2. Heat your water to a boil, then let it rest for a few seconds to stop the boil.
3. Pour the hot water over the coffee to make the coffee 'bloom'. This is done by pouring steady and add just enough water to fully saturate the grounds, then stir gently.

5. Once you have poured all of the water, remove your filter, and enjoy!
