So you’ve purchased a FLASK and you’re well on your way to becoming your new favorite barista! While we hope the detailed instruction sheet that came with your FLASK provides enough detail to get you brewing, here is a quick step-by-step photo tutorial to supplement your knowledge.
Step 1: Gather the supplies
Grab your FLASK and (optional) paper filters. While not necessary, adding the filter to your brewing process will ensure a further refined and smoother-tasting brew.
Step 2: Deconstruct
Remove the inner brewing chamber from the outer glass carafe, and unscrew the bottom filter from the brewing chamber.
Step 3: Add Filter
Place one of the circular paper filters on top of the reusable metal filter. Re-attach the filter to the inner brewing chamber by lining up the notches and turning to secure.
Step 4: Add Coffee & Re-Assemble
Scoop the desired amount of coffee grounds into the inner brewing chamber. Place the brewing chamber inside the FLASK’s glass carafe.
**We recommend approximately 4-5 Tbs. of medium ground coffee for the 17 fl.oz. which the FLASK brews. For a stronger flavor, allow the coffee to brew longer, rather than adding more coffee grounds.**
Step 5: Steep!
Pour just-before-boiling water into the inner brewing chamber of the FLASK. Place the press assembly on top, and allow to steep for 3-5 minutes depending on preference.
Step 6: Press
Slowly and firmly press the FLASK’s rubber press-knob down into the brewing chamber. Keywords: SLOWLY & FIRMLY. It will take a moment for the pressure of the brewed coffee to flow through the coffee grounds and filter. Keep pressing all the way to the bottom. The press-knob should nestle down into the top of the press assembly.
Step 7: Enjoy!
The unique design of the FLASK allows coffee to be poured in any direction (cool, eh?). Serve into your favorite mug or ethoz™ Glass Tumblers, and enjoy!
Step 8: Clean
Once you’ve sipped the last drop of that sweet brown liquid, simply remove the inner brewing chamber from the carafe, unscrew the bottom filter piece, and press the knob to pop the coffee grounds into a compost or waste bin.
