Basically what I did was start a carafe using the refillable K-Cup with no coffee in the K-Cup which basically turned my Kuerig coffee maker into a filtered water dispenser. While that was going on, I put 3 cone filters into the stainless steel filter and I pre-rinsed the filter with hot water and then I dumped that water out while my carafe was going. Next I poured just enough water from the carafe to bloom the coffee (just enough to cover the grounds) and let it sit for exactly 1 minute. Next I pretty much kept pouring until all of the carafe water was used.
