Step 6 : After a minute continue brewing the coffee by pouring the water for another 100 grams in a slow and steady rate with the same circular motion in a spiral path, concentrate in the grounds as the pouring should cover all the grounds, the objective is to sink the ground all around the surface of the bed. This will create a turbulence which allow water to extract the grounds more evenly, wait for another 40 – 50 seconds as the coffee will settles it down, now the second pour is done.
Step 7 : Now we are starting our final pour of water, start pouring in a slow and steady state with the same motion, pour the complete water in the ground, the pouring should takes around 50 – 60 seconds.
