In this recipe we are going to cover how to properly brew yourself a cup of Rooted Roast coffee using a Percolator.
- Electric Percolator
- Camp or Stovetop Percolator
- 4.oz (177.441 ml) of water / 0.30 oz, 1.5tbsp, 8g of coffee (Strong)
- 8.oz of water (236.588ml) / 0.46 oz, 2tbsp, 13g of coffee (medium)
- 16.oz of water (473.176ml) / 1.06 oz, 3.5tbsp, 30 grams (less strong)
Electric Percolator Summary:
- Begin by heating the water to just under boiling, about 206 degrees.
- Warm the pour over kit and rinse the filter with some of the warm water and then discard the used water. (optional)
- Add the filter and coffee and pour about 1/10 of the water onto the grounds and give it a light swirl or stir; let it sit for about half a minute. This is called blooming and ensures that all the grounds are wet.
- Start pouring the water in, about 1/4 at a time, making sure to pour evenly across the grounds.
- As the water gets close to the top of the grounds, pour the next 1/4 in. Continue this until all the water has been used.
- This process should take between 3-5 minutes and once done, discard the used grounds and enjoy the coffee!
Camp or Stovetop Percolator Summary:
- Measure out water for the desired amount of coffee and add it to the bottom chamber of the percolator.
- Using coarsely ground coffee, add the proper amount to the filter basket and insert into the percolator. Close the lid.
- Place the percolator on the heat source and let it start to perk! It is best to keep the water right under boiling, about 207 degrees. We recommend medium heat. This will keep the coffee from tasting scorched.
- Set a timer for 7 min. This can be adjusted lower if you prefer a milder cup of coffee or longer if you like a bolder cup.
- Once your timer goes off, remove the percolator from the heat source and enjoy the coffee!
Be careful not to over fill the filter basket or you may overflow into your brewed coffee. If you prefer a darker, stronger cup of coffee let it run for a little longer.
