Jonathan Gagné is an astrophysicist and coffee blogger from Montréal, Canada. He developed this recipe with an extremely long brew time in order to maximize extraction and sweetness, resulting in a flavor profile closer to a well-prepared pourover.

While it's not required, he recommends using the Fellow Prismo attachment to prevent astringency from side channeling. If you own one, check out the Prismo-specific version of this recipe for special instructions.
