Kalita Brew Instructions
The Kalita Wave brew devices hails from the Kalita company in Japan, whom has been making coffee brewers since the 1950s.
What you will need:
- Kalita Wave Brewer and filters
- Fresh Coffee
- Coffee Grinder
Rinse out your filter with hot water, making sure to dispose of the water before brewing the coffee.
Measure out 20g of coffee and grind on a medium-fine grind level. We recommend using a 14 setting on the Baratza Encore.
Pour your ground coffee into the filter and give it a good shake to even out the coffee bed.
We will be using 200F water for this brew. We are aiming for a 1:15 recipe of ground coffee to water in about three minutes. Since we used 20g of coffee, we want to use 300g of water.
Pour your first 100g of hot water onto the coffee bed, making sure to evenly wet all of it. Wait around 30 seconds.
Continue to pour the remaining 200g of water, stretched over the remaining two and a half minutes. Use a spiral motion, starting in the center of the coffee bed and pouring to the outside edge.
After you have finished pouring all of the 300g of water, let the coffee rest for about a minute to finish draining.
Serve up and enjoy!
