HOW TO BREW AT HOME: Stovetop

Adam Chong Brew Guide Coffee Home Brew Stove Top

Stovetop coffee is an absolute Italian classic for producing a strong brew at home. This beloved brewing device is most iconic today for its traditional and simplistic use - all you need is water, coffee and a stove. Particularly associated with the brand Bialetti, the method and coffee maker have remained almost unchanged over many generations and enjoyed by every home barista.

We think a freshly roasted batch any of our coffee blends works well with the stovetop. Pairs very smoothly with dairy or non-dairy milk.

METHOD

1. Fill the bottom chamber with cold water to around the safety valve. Pop the filter basket back on and check if the water is just seeping through the holes

2. Fill the filter basket with espresso ground coffee, so it is levelled. Simply slide your finger across the top to make it even. Do NOT tamper

  • Add 14g coffee for a 3 cup stovetop
  • Add 24g coffee for a 6 cup stovetop

3. Screw on the top chamber

4. Place on your stove and brew at medium heat

5. After 5-10 mins, you should begin to hear a hissing / bubbling sound

6. Turn off the stove and pour into a cup next to some famous CookieMan biscuits

 

CLEANING

1. Empty the coffee grind

2. Rinse the top and bottom chamber with cold water and dry. Do NOT use chemicals

 

BARISTA TIPS

  • After the brew is complete, place the bottom chamber of the stovetop in a pool of cold water. This stops the brewing process and reduces bitterness
  • Dip the cookies in your coffee
