• 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.

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.

• Bonus tip.

To keep coffee warmer for longer cover it with a red lid.

• The red lid is screwed on top of a pouring cup.

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

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

• 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 👍

• How much do you think you saved in coffee related expenses by using this versus going to a coffee shop?

• 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.

• nice, also I think you're being conservative at \$4 per cup, @Chris tells me you're into the fancy stuff :)

• 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.
