  1. Choose the right grind. For Pour-Overs use medium-coarse grind, roughly the size of dark brown sugar. Learn more about ideal grind sizes for brewing here.
  2. Next, place the filter in the brewer then add coffee grounds.
  3. Pour 3 fl oz water evenly over grounds then stir quickly for 10 seconds to agitate.
