Instructions to assemble the coffee maker.

Here we are trying to answer some of the questions that comes to mind after seeing such an equipment.

  • What to do with the metal plunger/tamper (3)?
    It is used to set the coffee ground. Press gently till the coffee is evenly distributed and a flat surface is formed.
    If you leave it in the tumbler while brewing it will take up some volume, which means the tumbler will be holding less water.
    Our suggestion: use it to set the coffee and then put it away.
  • Where does the coffee gets collected?
    In the bottom part (1) of the tumbler. This is where the coffee goes in.
  • How to handle this thing?
    Majority of the tumblers are made of steel. It gets pipping hot when boiling/hot water is poured. Keep small children away and use kitchen towel or hand gloves to disassemble it. Or else wait till it cools down.

Tips: The leftover coffee ground in the tumbler can used as manure for plants.
