Clever Dripper Brew Guide

What You Need:

  • Clever Dripper
  • Paper Coffee Filter
  • Freshly Ground Coffee Beans (Medium grind)
  • Good Quality Water (Filtered)
  • Coffee to Water Ratio 1:16

Example: 25g coffee to 400ml water


Step 1: Prepare Your Equipment:

  1. Place a paper filter in the Clever Dripper and rinse it with hot water to remove any papery taste. Discard the rinse water.
  2. Set the Clever Dripper on top of your mug.

Step 2: Measure and Add Coffee:

  1. Measure the desired amount of coffee based on your preference.
  2. Add the coffee grounds to the rinsed filter in the Clever Dripper.

Step 3: Add Water:

  1. Heat water to the desired brewing temperature (around 90-96Β°C).
  2. Pour the hot water over the coffee grounds, ensuring all the grounds are saturated. Use a gentle circular motion to make sure the coffee is evenly wet.

Step 4: Steeping:

  1. Place the lid on the Clever Dripper and let the coffee steep for about 2-4 minutes, depending on your taste preference. Adjust the steeping time to control the strength of your brew.

Step 5: Release and Stir:

  1. Once the steeping time is complete, place the Clever Dripper on top of your mug. The valve at the bottom will release the brewed coffee.
  2. Give the coffee a gentle stir to ensure uniform extraction.

Step 6: Serve and Enjoy:

  1. Pour the brewed coffee into your favourite mug.
  2. Customise your coffee with milk, sugar, or enjoy it black.

Optional Tips:

  • Experiment with different coffee-to-water ratios for varying strengths.
  • Adjust grind size based on your preference; a medium grind is a good starting point.
  • Explore different coffee beans to discover unique flavour profiles.


  • Discard the used coffee grounds and rinse the Clever Dripper with warm water after each use.
  • Periodically clean the Clever Dripper thoroughly with mild soap to remove any coffee oils.
