Brewing Exceptional Coffee: Use 2 level teaspoons of coffee for each 6 oz. of fresh cold water. Our extra fine grind allows you to make a richer cup of coffee using up to 30% less coffee. Adjust the amount of coffee to suit your taste. For best results, use Melitta coffee filters. To help preserve flavor and aroma after opening, close lid securely and store in a cool, dry and dark location.
