PREPARATION STEP BY STEP
Preparing your favorite coffee with the Arca X Tract is not only environmentally friendly, but also uncomplicated and fast. Here you can learn how to prepare great-tasting filter coffee and cold brew with the hand filter method, which produces no waste, step by step and without complications at home or on the go.
INSTRUCTIONS: HAND INFUSION PREPARATION WITH THE ARCA X TRACT BREW
Step 1: Coffee quantity and grind
Insert the stainless steel filter into the borosilicate glass and add approx. 5-6 g of ground coffee or a heaped spoonful into the filter per desired cup. With one brewing operation, 2-6 cups of coffee can be prepared, depending on the size of the pot. More or less coffee grounds can also be used, depending on how strong you want the coffee to be. The degree of grinding also depends on your own taste, a medium-fine ground coffee is recommended.
Step 2: Add water
Bring water to a boil and then wait approx. 30 seconds before adding it to the Arca X Tract. The water should not be warmer than 96 °C and the infusion should not be too timid, if it bubbles, wait briefly, stir a little and then continue pouring the water.
Step 3: Stir in crust & let coffee rest
Break up the resulting "crust" by stirring and continue to mix the coffee well. The coffee can be left to rest for a while so that the aromas can develop. The brewing process is complete at 85 °C. The filter can remain in the pot the whole time, even when serving. You do not need to worry that this will make the coffee bitter or strong.
Step 4: Disposal of coffee grounds & cleaning the pot
There is no waste when using the Arca X Tract. No filter paper is needed and the coffee grounds can simply be disposed of in organic waste or compost after brewing and thus serve as fertilizer for plants. To clean the pot, simply wash the filter, glass pitcher and lid under running water with dishwashing liquid or have them cleaned in the dishwasher. All parts are dishwasher safe.
Step 5: Pour the coffee and enjoy!
Finally, pour the coffee into a cup and enjoy! By keeping the hot filter in the pot, the coffee is kept warm.
Cold Brew Preparation
To prepare Cold Brew, simply pour cold water on the coffee and place it in the refrigerator overnight or for a few hours and let it steep. After that, the Cold Brew is ready and can be enjoyed.
