Step 5: Measure and Pour

Using a coffee scale, measure out the appropriate amount of coffee grounds for your desired brew strength. Start by pouring a small amount of hot water over the grounds to allow them to bloom and release carbon dioxide. Then, continue pouring in a slow, steady spiral motion, ensuring that all the grounds are evenly saturated.
