just another morning in the lab... step 1. preheat mug with hot water, step 2. grind 26 grams of delicious freshly roasted beans, step 3. add ground beans to the kone and level the coffee bed with light tapping upon the side, step 4. bring water to a boil and pour transfer 380 grams to your desired kettle (cooling the water to approx. 200 degrees F), step 5. delicately cover grounds with water (~45 grams) and let the coffee bloom for 30 seconds, step 6. pour a consistent stream of water in small concentric circles in the middle of the coffee bed until the kone is approx. half full, step 7. add the remaining water while keeping the water level constant, step 8. enjoy a wonderful cup of coffee. #XtremeKone #betterlivingthroughchemistry

#The Double Long Drop Start with water at an aggressive boil. The xtreme heat will help protect brewing temp against heat loss associated with open air elevation drop. 28g of medium ground coffee. The shifting from the stairs may help or harm the level brewing bed. As @rroobbpp is demonstrating accuracy is important. 420g water with a 75g/30s bloom. Aggressive agitation from elevation change will need to be monitored. 3 min total brew time. After the roaster questions your technique, dump remaining water into already brewed #ablekone. Thusly, covering him (@augiescoffee) in finished coffeeness. Allow @rybak ample time to serve customers. Repeat #xtremekone #fruitbomb #chemex #coffeeservice

The Entimos boys where just minding their own business, getting ready to make some coffee and take our last picture for the #xtremekone Challenge for @ablebrewing & @sprudge when this officer showed up and broke up our fun... 1. We started with 46g of coffee and heated 650g of water to 200F just enough to make two perfect 8 oz cups of coffee 2. We pre-infused 50g of water to wet the grounds and waited 30 secs 3. That's when this officer showed up and took our coffee, slammed Matt on the hood of the car and threw Tim in the back 4. It's apparent he knew about @Entimoscoffee & @kumacoffee because he recognized good roasters when he sees them 5. We told him to pulse pour slowly to ensure thorough extraction 6. It's obvious he wasn't in any hurry to screw this recipe up, which takes about 4 min. 7. After he had finished the last pour and allowed the remaining coffee to emerge from the grounds, he removed the Gold Kone, made a quick swirl of the Chemex, poured it in his travel mug and proceeded to drink our coffee 8. The judges says we can go home in the morning
cjspeelman : He caught you guys ridin dirty!
entimoscoffee : @cjspeelman hahaha that's great...yes he did!
jason_cohen : Awesome
phonenomenon : This is xtreme! Definitely a winner! Hope he let the @entimoscoffee boys off after having a good cup of coffee! @ablebrewing @sprudge @stripedshirt @ayullonsdale

"Inverted Kone" #xtremekone @ablebrewing @sprudge Our Recipe: 500mL filtered water (203F) 32g fresh roasted coffee Grind: Med (Ditting 7) Instructions: Pre-heat Chemex Add ground coffee to Kone; gently shake to level the coffee bed and add Kone to Chemex; Place Chemex on Scale-Tare-Start timer; 0m0s: begin pre-wet with 100g Water -- for this stage, pour slowly, directly into the center, until all coffee grounds are wet... Be patient and pour slow - there is no need for a circular pour...yet! 0m45s: Begin next stage of brewing by pouring slowly into the center and circling out to a size of a silver dollar. Pour until slurry is within a thumbs width of top of Kone filter. 1m45s : continue pouring water slowly into the center, keeping the slurry at a consistent depth, until you're poured 500mL 3m30s: You should reach 500mL around this time 4m20s: Brewing Finished! Remove Kone from Chemex; Decant into another server or let rest 3-5 minutes before serving. Makes enough for one, but perfect for two... Enjoy!

#xtremekone @ablebrewing @sprudge 1. Pre-heat Diedrich roaster to 250F 2. Weigh out 23g of coffee, I enjoy @EntimosCoffee personally 3. Weight out 300g of cold filtered water 4. Once roaster is at proper temperature, specifically place Able Brewing Gold Kone and any receptacle you choose to receive the coffee on top of your scale. Pay careful attention to the location of the Kone and were your water comes out. 5. Slowly pour cold water into bean hopper and allow water to heat to 200F within the drum, you can note the temperature of your water by the sophisticated thermocouple within the roaster drum. 6. At the perfect time slowly open the drop handle and pre-infuse 50g of coffee and wait 30 secs. 7. After 30 secs, pulse pour remaining amount of water into the Kone. 8. It's ok to wait 10-15 secs between pours to admire the roaster, see how gorgeous it is, how perfect the size and the quality of roasted coffee it produces. 9. Ok, back to making coffee... 10. Once you have finished your extraction of coffee, set aside the Kone, swirl your receptacle and relish the fact you just created the most Xtreme cup of coffee.

The thing about #XtremeKone brewing is that it's a special process. @AbleBrewing, @Sprudge, this is how it's done. Because if one is not enough... XtremeKone Recipe: You will need 20g of coffee, 300g of 200F water, burr grinder, timer, kettle, scale and spoon. 1: Place filter in preheated brewer and then both on the scale. 2: Prepare 20g of fresh, xtremely good coffee at a medium course grind. (Adjust to taste) 3: Add the coffee to the filter and gently shake brewer to settle coffee bed. 4: Zero scale and start timer. 5: Pour 50g of water in the centre for 10 seconds. 6: Vigorously stir coffee bed from the edge in to the centre for 10 seconds. 7: Wait 45 seconds. 8: Xtremely slowly, pour 200g of water in small, centered circles, no larger than an inch for 0:55-1:05 minutes. 9: Once 250g is achieved, wait until water recedes to the coffee bed, around 8 seconds, then pour final 100g of water as before in 0:25-0:30 seconds. 10: Let coffee bed reappear and dripping finish between 2:50 - 3:10 minutes. 11: Enjoy your xtremely good coffee!
stefanfyvr : For those wondering, the onsite recipe was as follows. At home, boil some water and fill thermos. Grind a handfull of beans into a jar. Walk, clothed, to Stanley Park for an hour. Find suitable photo location. Unpack. Realize you left your kettle at home. Prepare for the cold fogginess of Vancouver on a Monday morning. Remove clothing and go to my "special place". Throw an amount of grind coffee in kone. Pose. Start pouring hot water. Pose. Realizes it's actually F$*@ing cold out. Finish pouring water in about 30 seconds. Or so. Pour brew back in to thermos. Repeat 3x times for "that shot". Pose. Start regretting doing this in January. Pause shoot and grab jacket to warm up. Check photos. Allow photographer (a.k.a. brother) to suggest pose. Remove jacket. Strike it. Pour coffee into mug. Drink the most delicious cup of coffee EVER! Dress, laugh at insanity, pack up, head home, edit, publish...
yunglambrusco : Just keeps getting better.
amanda_erin : You are awesome.
stefanfyvr : @amanda_erin @cloudimass @lepoff I see you guys went WAY back through my history last night 😜

MULTITASKING! Sometimes I like to make coffee while getting my truck washed. #XtremeKone @AbleBrewing @Sprudge Okay, here is the recipe. 23 grams of freshly ground coffee and 300 grams of water. Allow the grounds to be saturated on the first pass. Ideally you want about 45 seconds before you begin adding water. You will also want the water to be at about 200 degrees. The car wash water is only about 40 degrees and it comes much faster than you will want. Additional problems were realized when I was finally able to open my eyes and see that the water was splashing the coffee grounds as well as the walls of the Kone. Ideally, you want to control your pour better and keep it closer to the center rather than splashing all over everything. It was difficult to get anywhere near 300 grams of water in the Kone even with several passes of the high pressure jets. Perhaps if I had waited through several car washes, 300 grams would have been possible. But at $7 per wash, there are more economical ways to get water for your coffee. One of the most commonly overlooked mistakes that people make with regard to brewing coffee is the use of quality water. Time did not permit me to retrieve my TDS meter to test this water however it seemed to have a fruity smell and was very acidic and soapy. I don't imagine that it would have made good coffee. I couldn't bring myself to drink it. Ultimately, I do not recommend this particular method.
ddavidn : That is pretty great.
mattdittemore : I used Entimos Coffee on this one as well but with all the soap, it just wasn't drinkable. Haha
iamjordanwhite : Hahahahaha YESSS!!!!

I don't expect Invisibl Skratch Piklz to be calling, but I defy you to top me on these wheels of steel. #XtremeKone
smoovebcoffee : If you have a record player (that you want to spill coffee all over) you too can brew like @RyanSoeder and @hermitudinous with circulating ease. http://hermitudinous.com/2010/07/15/turn-and-pour/ I'd recommend brewing one cup at a time to minimize mopping later. Start with 15g of ground coffee in your v3 Kone. Bloom with 30g of water for 45 seconds. Pour the remaining 220g of water over the next 2 minutes in concentric circles, aided by your phonograph. Kone v1 and Kone v2 headphones are optional. #BringThatBeatBack #ImNotTheDJ #XtremeKone

Why's my iced coffee so buttery smooth? What's cooler than being cool? Same Answer: ICED KONE! #XtremeKone
smoovebcoffee : This recipe comes with special thanks to @christosandrews and @colecoffee who tipped me off to this last summer. Take a recipe you like and reduce the pouring water by 1/3, substituting ice for that pouring water. Unlike brewing double strength over ice, this way will melt your ice in the time it takes for you to brew. No waiting for the ice to melt and fix the coffee concentration means more time for drinking your coffee! I try to keep my coffee math simple, so here's my round-number recipe. 27g of ground coffee in the Kone v3, 150g of ice in the bottom of your chemex. Bloom with 50g of water for about 45 seconds, then pour the remaining 250g of water over the next 2 minutes. Swirl and enjoy your ICED KONE coffee now!
tehdan : Iced kone 3000
smoovebcoffee : You're damn right.

This is our go to recipe when looking for some balance to start out the day. - Boil ~1L water, remove from heat, let stand for 1 min prior to pour. - 50 g whole bean coffee - Medium grind - Preheat KONE/Carafe with 100-200 mL water - Discard preheat water - Place ground coffee in KONE, gently spin to level - Saturate grounds with 150 mL water - Allow the coffee to bloom for 30-40 sec - Begin pour, first saturating grounds and allowing the water level to rise to the top of the grounds. From here, maintain a steady pour in the center of the grounds matching the inlet and outlet flows. Allow intermediate rests every ~250 mL. 600 mL total of water used for this final pour. - Allow the bed to completely drain - Serve & enjoy ( serves 2 - 12 oz mugs) #erichbrennkone #sabredance #xtremeplatespinning #xtremekone @ablebrewing @sprudge @joealthaus

The best coffee recepie can't be changed, so here you go again, This is how we make new Kone v3 in Poland. Lets start with 28 grams of coffee (light roasted)(Koppi Guatemala Hunapu was great!) and grind it a bit finer than to dripper ( so 4.5/7 on :Mahlkonig Guatemala). Boil water and let it cool off for about 45 sek. Water now should have about 92 Celsius. Pour about 50 grams of water to wet the grounds. When water soak down and grounds become boggy stir (with bamboo stick) four circles in the center of Kone. Imidiatly start to slowly and steadly pour rest of the water (340 g) in the center, of course. It should take you less than 3 min to make 2 cups of excelent coffee. Enjoy! #XtremeKone
#xtremekone @ablebrewing @sprudge Some additional photos of the coffee I made for my first submission. They just seemed to good not to share. The recipe is on the first submission. This was actually a fantastic cup of coffee. It was Entimos of course. ;-)

#XtremeKone @ablebrewing @sprudge 1. Pre-heat water to 200F and pre-weight 23g of your favorite coffee 2. Using Zassenhaus Hand grinder, grind your beans and wait for the water to come to temperature 3. Water is done ready to go and beans are ground, pour water into your Hario Kettle. ....OH CRAP....not now...I don't have time for this, I have to make coffee... 4. Quickly gather the necessary equipment, Chemex, Chefmate Scale/timer combo, Hario kettle, Able Brewing mug, and Able Brewing Gold Kone and sprint to the throne. 5. Drop trou..and pre-infuse 50g of water ensuring all grounds are saturated. 6. While waiting for pre-infusion to finish feel free to pick up your reading material of choice 7. Slowly pour from center and make small circles outward allowing all the grounds to receive the perfect amount of water. One should notice the water swelling up from the bottom of the Kone saturating the grounds, allow level of water to slowly fall and repeat step 7. 8. Once your scale reads 360g of water, wait for remaining water to flow through the grounds till that last drop has been pushed through. 9. Remove Kone and set aside. Swirl Chemex and pour slowly into your Able Brewing mug. 10. At this point there is no rush, this is your own time, a moment to ponder many of life's questions, to enjoy the...probably should crack a window.
