Starring Rumble’s own Stan Bicknell, they show you the step-by-step process of how to get the best out of your coffee.


  • Stovetop
  • Element/Hot Plate
  • Freshly ground coffee
  • Scales
  • Hot filtered water
  • Funnel
  • Timer
  • Vessel


  • Setup: Grab the filter from the base of the stovetop and place the funnel inside.
  • Grind: Add fresh, fine to medium ground (think caster sugar) coffee to the stovetop filter. (Use 7.5g of coffee per 100ml of water-for 1 cup try 15g for 200ml)
  • Tap the filter holder to level out the ground coffee and remove any air pockets.
  • Brew: Use hot filtered water for a shorter brew time
  • Pour the hot water into the base of the stovetop.
  • Insert the filter with the ground coffee back into the stovetop and screw on the top piece, making sure it’s tight.
  • Place on your hotplate and turn it on.
  • Listen to the brew, when you hear it bubbling/brewing turn the element off.
  • Take the stovetop off the element and leave for a minute or so to finish brewing.
  • Pour: Once you hear the brewing stop, pickup the stovetop, pour into your vessel and enjoy. Stovetop can be quite strong so add more water if needed.
