Next up, you add hot water to the pot and let sit for three minutes. You then “break” the pot by stirring the coffee grounds and water three times (it’s important not to over-stir, something I learned the hard way . . . oops). After that, you add more hot water and let sit for two minutes. You then go around and inhale each pot to asses the aroma. You jot down the flavors you can smell in the second column. Compared to the first step, I found it easier to pinpoint certain scents with water added. The process should be quick so the coffee doesn’t cool off too much by the time you finish all the tastings.
