Slow coffee from Gubbels

Slow coffee van Gubbels - Lyklema Fine Art

Our latest acquisition is not a painting or work on paper but a glass sculpture by Klaas Gubbels. Gubbels is an artist from Arnhem and Rotterdam who loves the simple shapes of a table, chair or a coffee pot. He often called it a boiler. We wrote a nice blog about it. It inspired us to have an old-fashioned cup of coffee. Because you have complete control over all parts during the brewing process, slow coffee often tastes more refined than coffee from a fully automatic coffee machine. This way, sweet or sour flavors come out much better in slow coffee. So vary the type of beans and the ways of roasting those beans and even the coarseness of the grind. Simple as Gubbels' art but never boring.

  • 26 grams of ground coffee
  • 500 ml boiling water
  • 1 filter
  • scale
    Preparation method:
    Rinse the paper filter with warm water. Grind your coffee coarse or medium coarse.
    Pour a small amount of water onto the ground coffee, about 50 ml, and let it stand for 30 seconds to bloom and allow any gases to escape from the coffee beans. Pour the rest of the water onto the ground coffee (in one go or in several pours). Wait until all the water has run through the coffee. With slow coffee this takes on average about 2 to 4 minutes.
