- Open valve and place decanter underneath filter holder.
- Preheat & rinse filter with hot water. Dispose of used water.
- Grind your desired amount of coffee to a medium coarseness.
- Add ground coffee to your filter.
- Close valve.
- Using your Yama Gooseneck Kettle (not pictured), add a small amount of your brewing water 50-75 grams to the coffee and let stand. This is called the bloom. Blooming may take anywhere between 30-45 seconds depending on freshness of coffee.
- Then, pour the remainder of your brewing water from the inside of the coffee bed and work your way out slowly in a circular pattern. Aim for a consistent water flow.
- Open valve and allow coffee to filter into decanter.
- Full brew should take approximately 3:00 to 3:45 depending on grind setting, coffee roast level, and age of the coffee.

I notice that Silvertons come disassembled. How do you assemble one? I have a plastic ring left over…

Any tips on how to make a cold brew with the Silverton?
Hi Sean, There are two ways to make iced coffee with the Silverton. The Japanese style or you can use the Kyoto style like our infographic. Use the same ratio but decrease the amount of coffee to 30-40g. That should get you started, you may want to try both and see which one your tastebuds prefer!
