Step 5

Adjust the burner to low. Completely stir the mixture and then stir it again at 0:40.

Step 6

At 1:30 turn off the burner and stir the mixture once again. Wait for the coffee to seep through the filter into the globe. This should take about three minutes.

Step 7

Remove the funnel and serve directly from the globe.
