Clever Dripper Brew Guide

The Clever Coffee Dripper is a simple and reliable coffee brewer. It's made of durable BPA-free plastic and is easy to disassemble for cleaning.

The coffee that comes from the Clever Coffee Dripper is extraordinarily balanced in almost every way.  It has the rich flavour of a french press and the clean body of a pour-over – an approachable middle ground.

Follow our 8 step guide to achieve a clean cup for your home brew.



What you'll need

  • Clever Dripper L
  • Filtropa #4 paper filter
  • Grinder
  • Scale
  • Kettle
  • Server
  • Filtered water
  • Nuddy Coffee

STEP 1

Boil a kettle of filtered water.

The ideal water temperature is between 92 and 94 degrees celsius. If you have a regular kettle, bring it to boil and then leave it to sit for a few minutes whilst grinding your coffee.

STEP 2

Rinse the paper filter.

Place a paper filter into the Clever Dripper and rinse it with hot water. Rinsing the filter will remove the “papery” taste as well as preheating the brewer and the server.

STEP 3

Place the brewer on a scale and tare to zero.

Make sure to discard the water that was used during the rinsing process.

STEP 4

Add 24g of ground coffee on the Clever Dripper.

The grind size should be a similar size to table salt. Freshly ground coffee always tastes the best!

STEP 5

Pour 400g of hot water.

Pour gently over all of the coffee ground. Leave it for 2 minutes to allow it to extract fully.

STEP 6

Wait 2 minutes and break the crust gently with a spoon.

STEP 7

Drain the coffee onto the server.

It should take about 1-2 minutes to drain all the coffee.

STEP 8

Let it drip until it’s finished.

Make sure the water is drained from the coffee bed completely. This should take 2 to 3 minutes.

Tip: If it’s taking longer than expected, coarsen the grind next time. If it’s running short, go finer.

Enjoy!
