Step 1 Begin with clean equipment.
Step 2 Fill bottom globe with hot water and place over the heat source. Let the top globe rest on the bottom globe, but do not fit them together too tightly.
Step 3 When water in bottom globe begins to boil, tightly fit top globe onto the bottom globe.
Step 4 As water transfers to the top globe, stir to cool water. Turn down the heat source as well. Aim for 200°F without letting water transfer back to the bottom of the globe.
Step 5 Add coffee into the top globe and stir to saturate all the grounds. Let steep for 1 – 2 minutes.
Step 6 Then stir grounds again and remove from the heat to start vacuum filtering. Filtering is finished when coffee in bottom globe bubbles.
Step 7 Enjoy!
