Plunger Brewing Guide
Every household has one of these lying around as it's probably the most common home brewing method in New Zealand.
This recipe is to produce 1 litre of filter coffee using 60 grams of ground coffee. The ratio in use is 1:17.
Boil a kettle of filtered water. If you are using a temperature controlled kettle, heat the water to 95°C - 96°C, if not boil and leave to stand for a few minutes before using it.
Using your scale, weigh out 60g of coffee and grind it at a very course setting.
Rinse the plunger with some hot water and discard.
Place the plunger on the scale and tare. Add the 60g of coffee.
Tare the scale and add 1 litre (or 1000 grams) of water and stir.
Wait 3:30 - 4 minutes then attach the mesh plunger on the top of the beaker and slowly plunge down.
Serve and enjoy.
