Hey everyone. I'm using a Bodum pour over system with #4 white Melita paper filters, as the mesh metal filter that comes with the unit is basically useless. I had a problem with the filters breaking and all the grounds falling into the base of hot water. So I've been folding the filters (kinda like how you would fold up a paper airplane) and now my filters hold up, but the hot water pours through the grounds way too fast! The grounds barely have time to bloom much (maybe 10 seconds) before all the water just pours right through into the bottom. I pour the rest of the water in a circular motion. I haven't timed it yet, but the brew process seems much quicker than ~3 minutes. The hot water just pours right through. Before I was getting stronger coffee, but most times the filter would break. Now I'm getting the opposite. I'm using about 2 tablespoons of beans (one scoop that came with my grinder) on setting 6 (Medium) the first Medium number on an OXO grinder, to brew one cup at a time. The grind isn't super fine, pre ground coffee looks finer than this. I think if I make the grind coarser the water will just pour through even faster. I have a gooseneck kettle with a thermometer, and I wait until the water is about 200F or cooler, then wet the filter so it sticks, peel the filter back a little, pour out the water and start the brew process. What can I do to saturate the grounds longer with hot water? Also is there some type of mesh metal filter I can buy that will fit a Bodum for when I want to brew coffee without a paper filter? Thanks.
