Filling the Newton BRUA brew chamber with boiling water and pressing the lever down is the simplest way to extract a perfect espresso. This process is quick and easy to do, making it a great option for anyone who wants to enjoy a delicious cup of coffee with minimal effort.
To begin, attach the prepared filter basket to the brew chamber. You can read more about preparing the BRUA for extraction, read our article about preparing to extract coffee using the BRUA.
Next, ensure the lever is lifted 5-10mm (1/4 inch) from the lowest position. It's important to press the lever all the way down to the bottom before lifting it up slightly as this will activate opening the water valve. Pressing the lever down from the top position and stopping just before the bottom position won't open the water valve.
Once the water has reached boiling point, fill up the brew chamber with it. Make sure to fill the chamber to the top. With the water valve now open there will be no space for air pockets or bubbles.
And now you are ready for extraction! Simply lift the handle (and piston) to the top position - as you do this the water will be drawn below the piston by a vacuum, then smoothly and forcefully press and hold the lever at the lowest position.
Once the extraction is complete, pour your espresso into a cup and enjoy! With the Newton BRUA, making a perfect espresso has never been easier.
