First cleanse the filter using cold water or if hot allow to cool.

If hot water, it opens the pores of the filter paper.

Next pour in hot water just off boiling.

Pause to allow the CO2 to escape.

Next continue to pour hot water.

Serve and enjoy.

Different method of pouring hot water. Not continuous circular motion.

This method was pioneered by World Barista champion Stefanos Domatiotis of Taf.

This method results in a more even bed of coffee, more even extraction.

Pouring a fine stream of hot water directed at the centre, causes a circular motion within the bed, flowing down from the centre, then out and back down from the centre.
