Eva Solo Step By Step Instructions
Step 1 Preheat Fill the Eva up with water freshly brought off boil. After waiting 10 seconds, discard the water from the Eva. Make sure to unzip the jacket at this stage.
Step 2 Weigh Weigh out N/A of whole bean coffee. Using your favorite grinder, grind the coffee to a very coarse setting. (Keep in mind that altitude plays an important role in your grinder settings. As you move up in altitude you will find that you will need to grind your coffee finer). To read more on the grind click here.
Step 3 Grind Dump your freshly ground coffee into the Eva. Set the Eva on the scale and turn it on. If the scale doesn't read 0 N/A press the tare/zero button.
Step 4 Pour Now that everything is set up, start the N/A minute timer on the webpage, and pour the hot water into the center of the coffee grounds. Slowly pour in a circular motion until your scale reads N/A. Wait till the timer reads 3:15 min, give it a good 10 second stir, insert the filter/lid into the Eva and zip up the Eva's jacket. Immersion Master Tip "If the coffee tastes weak the grind was too course, but if the coffee is too strong then the grind was too fine"
Step 5 Transfer Once the timer has ended transfer your freshly brew coffee into a thermos or preheated vessel. You do not want it to continue to sit in the Eva as the fine particulates of coffee will continue to extract giving you a very bitter cup after a few minutes.
Step 6 Enjoy Close Your Eyes... Tune out everything around you, but the dizzying aroma of the coffee. Now Smell... Try to identify and describe the aroma in your own words. Chocolate? Nutty? Floral? Sweet? The Moment Has Finally Come, Taste The Coffee! Slowly focus on the flavor, let the coffee evenly coat your tongue. When does the bright dazzling acidity hit? What does it taste like? Is there sweetness? Is it more caramelized or like candy? A well prepared coffee will not be overly bitter, nor will it be astringent. It will instead display an amazing array of flavors brought out by many carefully controlled steps, from planting the seed to your finished cup!
