Let the kettle cool for 30 seconds after the water comes to a boil. 6. Pour the water in concentric circles over the grounds, filling half the cone. 7. Stir the grounds until they’re completely covered by the water. 8. When the water level dips below one quarter of the cone, pour more hot water in the same concentric motion. 9. Repeat as many times as necessary. When the mug is full you’re done. 10. Carefully remove the filter with the spent grounds and discard—only one brew per grounds. Three minutes from first pour to full cup is about right. If it took less than three minutes, the grind is too coarse. If it took more than four minutes, the grind is too fine.
