45g bread flour

5g coffee flour

50g water

Sourdough bread ingredients:

360g bread flour - could be wheat

40g coffee flour

250g water - and 30g kept in separate container

First step: Make the Leaven

- Mix the sourdough starter culture with the bread flour, the coffee flour and the water.

- Let it sit at room temperature for 3 to 6 hours until doubled in size.

Second step: Mix Ingredients

- Mix the bread flour with the coffee flour.

- Add the leaven and 250g of water to the flours and mix well.

- Let the mixture rest for 30 minutes with a wet towel on top (autolyse process). In the meantime, dissolve the salt in 30g of water.

- After 30 minutes, add the salt water to the mixture.

Third Step: Stretch & Fold

The next step consists in letting the dough rest at room temperature for a total time of 3 to 4 hours. During the first 2 hours of the resting time, it's important you regularly stretch and fold the dough - preferably 3 to 4 times every 30 minutes. Here's how to stretch and fold:

- Every 30 minutes, grab a piece of the dough and stretch it out, then fold it back over the dough.

- Turn the bowl 90 degrees and repeat the stretch and fold process a total of 4 times.

Every time you stretch and fold, the dough will gain extra gluten structure and become more elastic.

Fourth Step: Creating Tension

- After the initial proofing time of 3 to 4 hours, scrap the dough onto a lightly floured surface.

- Fold the dough like an envelope, allowing air to be trapped within the bread.

- Now, with both hands, drag the dough towards yourself from the top.

- Turn the dough 90 degrees and repeat.

This process creates tension on the top surface.

Fifth Step: Overnight Proofing

- Take the dough (formed into the desired shape) and place it in a basket.

- Let the dough proof overnight in the fridge.

- Get some sleep.

Sixth Step: Baking the Bread

- Preheat the oven to 250°C and place a dutch oven/pot in the oven.

- When the oven is ready: take the pot out, place the dough in the pot and bake for 25 minutes with the lid on.

- After 25 minutes, take the lid off and bake for another 20 minutes at 230°C.

- Take the bread out of the oven and let it cool down for approximately 30 minutes.

Final Step: Enjoy!
