Happy Mistake

Category: Experimental
Creator: Michael M

I accidentally ground 18 grams of coffee at 17 clicks on Timemore C2, when attempting to make a smaller brew. Crunched for time, so I decided to give the recipe a spin and was very pleasantly surprised.

The coffee from this recipe is very comparable to something from a V60, with an interesting combination of letting the coffee drip through and then plunging towards the end.

This was based on the Kyle Roswell recipe, but scaled up using a 1:17 ratio.
