Tips and Tricks
- Rinse the jug thoroughly by hand with warm water without soap.
- Fill the lower part with water up to below the valve.
- Screw together without ground coffee and let it cook through.
- Fill the bottom of the jug with water to below the valve.
- Fill the sieve with ground coffee of a medium grind. Do not use fine coffee powder. Fill the powder to the brim and smooth it out without pressing it down.
- Insert the sieve with the coffee into the lower part of the pot and screw the pot together. Do not use the wooden handle for screwing and unscrewing, as this should not be subjected to lateral loads. Always brew the coffee on low to medium heat. Especially with a gas stove, too large a flame can damage the wooden handle. The coffee also tastes better when it is brewed slowly.
- When it starts bubbling, remove the pot from the stove immediately. You should only use the handle (danger of burns). You can also briefly cool the lower part of the pot under cold water so that no bitter aromas develop.
- I prefer to drink my coffee with some oat drink or foamed barista oat drink.
- Allow the jug to cool down after use. Only when it's cold can you unscrew it without using the handle and then rinse it with water without soap. Dry with a tea towel and leave uncovered until completely dry. Don't wipe the top every time, as coffee oils leave a thin layer that creates an extra good aroma the next time you cook. Due to the wooden handle, the jug is not dishwasher safe. Remove the sealing ring and coffee filter at regular intervals and clean them separately with water.
- Do not leave the jug unattended while cooking
- After boiling, only hold the pot by the handle (risk of burns!). Do not screw the jug on and off by the handle.
- Use only ground coffee in your espresso maker. It is not suitable for cocoa powder, tea or anything else.
- The water level must always be below the drain valve.
- Never heat the pot without water. It must not be heated any further after the coffee has been brewed.
- The enclosed sealing ring and the spare nut are only for replacement in case of wear
- Descale the coffee pot regularly
- Fill the bottom of the pitcher with water and add 2 tablespoons of citric acid or vinegar. The level must be below the valve.
- Make a batch with no ground coffee and pour it down the drain.
- Repeat when the pot has cooled down with plain water without ground coffee.
