  1. Boil your kettle with just enough filtered water
  2. If using a grinder, grind coffee to a fine setting
  3. Unscrew the stovetop, remove the coffee chamber. Fill the stovetop with hot water to just below the valve level
  4. Fill the coffee with ground coffee. Carefully level the coffee to create an even surface
  5. Using a tea towel or oven gloves, place the coffee chamber into the Stovetop and carefully screw back together
  6. Place the Stovetop on the hob, on a high heat and wait for the coffee to brew
  7. Once you hear the stovetop bubbling, quickly turn off the heat as the coffee brews into the top chamber
  8. Pour the coffee into a cup and enjoy

Pro tip: Due to the high heat on this brew method sometimes Stovetop coffee can taste strong and bitter. If this isn’t for you try experimenting with lighter roasts which are less susceptible to bitterness
