The How-to’s and Practical Tips for Doing a Coffee Enema

In the last blog we discussed the health benefits of coffee enema, the science behind it and the history. Today we are just going to hit the nuts and bolts of the process. If you want to understand the science behind this, go to part one of this blog for more details. 

Tools Needed for Coffee Enema

How to prepare the Coffee Enema



  1. Boil ground coffee in distilled water for 3-5 minutes.
  2. Reduce to simmer and allow to simmer with pot covered for 15 minutes
  3. Cool and pour water through stainless steel strainer or cheesecloth into glass measuring cup
  4. Pour the coffee concentrate into the ball jar and top this with plain distilled water. 
    *Concentrate is good for 3 days in the refrigerator

The Process

  • Boil all the parts of your enema kit to sterilize it- bag/bucket, tubing and red rubber- before use. 
  • Shake the coffee concentrate to reincorporate the sediment on the bottom of the jar
  • Pour 1 cup of the coffee concentrate in your glass measuring cup (minimum 4 cup measuring cup)
  • Heat 1-2 cups of distilled water in stainless steel pot and add this to your coffee concentrate
  • Add enough room temperature distilled water to make a total volume of 4 cups
  • Set up your space the way that is most comfortable for you and be prepared with a book and ipad, or podcast.
  • Options for setting up your bag/bucket:
    • Hang the bucket or bag on your towel rack
    • Take a command strip hook or existing hook inside your shower and hang it in the shower (what I do)
  • Choose your spot-
    • Some folks will lay in a bathtub when doing this. When I attempted my first coffee enema, this is what I did because I was worried about making a mess.
    • Some folks make a spot with a few towels on the bathroom floor 
    • Some are comfortable on their beds (but definitely bring chucks or towels if you are braving this spot
  • Make the environment relaxing
    • I have always liked my bathroom to feel a little like a spa because I enjoy my baths every now and then. I recommend you make your space a bit more calming- set up a diffuser, lower the lights and put up a do-not-disturb sign.
  • Check the temperature of your coffee- 
    • Use the inside of your forearm (like you do when testing the temperature of baby milk. 
      • It should be warm, but not hot. 
      • Too cold and you will have cramps. 
      • Too hot is not an option. 
    • I know some folks who use their infrared thermometers to test temp, which is a great option. Keep the liquid around body temperature: 98-99 F
  • Pour the coffee into your bag and bucket
    • Make sure you check the clamp before pouring! 
  • Evacuate your colon prior to CE (coffee enema) for optimal experience
  • Lubricate the red rubber tubing with coconut oil (or preferred natural oil) thoroughly 
  • For insertion, I find it easier to kneel and bear down slightly
    • Relax and breath as you insert the red rubber catheter about 8 inches.
    • The red rubber catheter is very important to use because it is gentle. Its flexibility prevents the risk of damage to the internal surfaces. Due to its flexibility, it should not be an uncomfortable placement.
  • Open the flow of fluid
    • Most tolerate ½ of the volume (2 cups) and do 2 sessions
  • Remove the catheter
  • Lay on right side (there is debate about this, but most suggest right side)
  • Retain the coffee for up to 15 minutes
    •  The goal is to allow the blood to pass through the liver at least 3 times and the average circulation time for an individual is 3-4 minutes
  • Evacuate contents and repeat for second portion

*order Bioactive Carbon Foundation or HM-ET binder

Clean Up Afterwards

  • Run hot water through the bag/bucket
  • Follow this with rinsing hydrogen peroxide through the system
  • Thoroughly was the red rubber tip with non-toxic, plant based (preferably essential oil based) soap
  • Run ice cold water through the system- this and the hydrogen peroxide prevents mold accumulation in the tubing.
  • Hang to dry
  • Wash your hands thoroughly throughout the process
