    • Add coffee beans.

      I use 25 - 30 grams for the 450 ml of water. The horizontal marks on the Cafflano grinder indicate 5 grams increments starting with 10 grams (I believe).

      Here are 25 grams (I measured) of coffee beans in the grinder.

    • Grind the beans.

      You can also grind them in a top pouring cup for a lower center of gravity. I recommend grinding on a level stable surface or sitting down and locking the cup between the knees (most comfortable) for an extra grip.

      Grinding is by far the hardest part of the entire coffee-making process and takes about 2 minutes. Some of the beans and pieces might be flying out as you grind, so be ready for that.

    • Pour in boiled water.

      I prefer light roasted coffee beans such as Ethiopia. For lighter roasts hotter water makes better extraction and flavorful coffee.

    • Keep an eye on the water level.

      I lift the filter a couple of times to see how full the cup is. There is no easy way to measure how much water to pour, but the cup holds a maximum of 450 ml.

    • The coffee is ready!

      It usually takes about 4-5 minutes for the cup to fill up. Remove the filter with grinds and rinse it before it dries up.

    • Cleaning is pretty simple: rinse the stainless steel filter and cup with water after each use. Other parts need only an occasional rinse.

      Here is the Cafflano Klassic fully disassembled:

    • this is a great idea for my travels. I love drinking coffee as the first thing to do in the morning when I wake up, but in hotels it's not always possible. with this machine I could drink hot coffee without having to leave the room! Thanks for this advice 👍

    • Great question! Here is some rough math:

      10 days of coffee for 4 people + 11 days of coffee for 2 people = 62 cups of coffee

      Most days I also had an afternoon solo coffee, so lets add another 15 cups.

      77 cups of pour over coffee at $4 per cup (pour over usually costs this much or more) = $308

      Cafflano Klassic - $75

      Coffee Beans - $45 ($15 x 3 bags)

      $308 - $120 = $188 of savings.

      The convenience of fresh, great tasting coffee = priceless.

    • I've been known to drop $7 for a cup of a great pour over coffee. Here is that cup with a certificate of origin and tasting notes:

    • Looks to be a pretty good thing to take camping, actually.

      That's exactly what I'm thinking too. Perfect for a couple people camping.

      @Vilen I often go on camping trips where I make coffee for 5-10 people. Since they don't make a bigger version of the Cafflano Klassic, what would you suggest for bigger groups camping? I'm thinking about getting a big french press.
