As a coffee fanatic this description, the measuring, weighing & timing all sound stupid and no NOT easy. Making coffee is a personal thing. What may be a sufficient amount for one doesn’t make it for another. So the measuring is pointless. Most people who have been drinking coffee at home can just guess the right amount and then adjust. Finally and no less important - you are NEVER, never supposed to pour boiling water over coffee grinds. It scalds the grinds and ruins the natural, delicious taste. This post sucked & failed.
