Empower Recipe:

- Grind 55-60 grams (about 1/3 cup) of coffee coarsely ground
- Boil filtered water to between 195 and 205 degrees (hotter for lighter roasts, cooler for darker roasts)
- Add ground coffee to body, then fill with water about halfway, making sure to saturate the grounds
-Let sit for roughly 1 minute from when you first started pouring the water, then stir grounds
-Add the rest of the water up to the 600 ml line (make sure you are pouring water to 600 ml line, not just the top of the grounds)
- Cover with olivewood lid and let sit for another 3 minutes (4 minutes total since first pour)
- Once 4 minutes have elapsed, slowly press the plunger all the way down. You should feel moderate resistance.
- Pour your coffee and enjoy!

Note: Some recommend letting your coffee sit for longer than 4 minutes; it's worth it to experiment and see what works best for you, but 4 minutes is the least amount of time you should take to brew.
