Add desired amount of medium ground coffee to the filter funnel.
Replace funnel and filter cap in chamber.

In a matter of minutes, the brewing process is concluded and the coffee is ready to serve.
Separate all components and hand wash with warm soapy water.
Clean filter funnel with warm water and washing-up liquid. A washing-up brush may be helpful in removing coffee residue.
