Created by the Japanese company Hario, a V60 Pour Over is a cone that has a 60º angle on each side. It can be found in different materials: ceramic, glass, plastic or metal and will suit your needs and your budget. It is loved by many because of all the variables that can alter the final cup. It’s a method that you can perfect at home and will give you freedom on how to create your favorite cup of coffee.
*A grinder is recommended to have the best cup of coffee, but you can order your coffee to be preground by us whenever you buy online or at our coffeeshop.
2 1/2 – 3 minutes
For one cup, bring 350g of water to a boil.
Pro Tip: To reach the right temperature, bring water to a boil and then let it stand for 30 seconds prior to use.
Measure 25 grams of beans.
Pro Tip: 25 grams is about 5 tablespoons or 2.5 standard coffee scoops.
Prepare the Filter // Grind
Fold down the seam of the paper filter and place it into the pour over cone so it lies flat. Then rinse the filter with hot water. Grind coffee to the coarseness of sand or sugar [medium-fine setting].
Pro Tip: Rinsing the filter helps eliminate any paper flavors and preheating cone and carafe can help keep temperature consistent throughout the brewing process. Grind size affects drip time and extraction. If your brew is too slow, try a slightly coarser grind. If it drips through too quickly, try a little finer.
Discard the hot water and place the V60 and carafe on your scale. Add ground coffee and then zero out or “tare” the scale. Then, give it a little shake so you have a even bed of coffee in the bottom of the filter. Pour just enough water to saturate the grounds in a spiral motion, then wait 30 seconds.
Pro Tip: When hot water meets coffee grounds, CO2 escapes and expands, creating a “bloom.” Once the off-gassing is complete, the grounds are more receptive to absorbing water, resulting in a better extraction of flavors.
At the 30 second mark, resume pouring water in a spiral motion without touching the walls of the filter until you have added enough water. Add water in 100 grams increments. You need to add 350 grams of water for each cup of coffee you want to prepare.
Pro Tip: Like it black? Give the coffee in your carafe a final swirl & enjoy. Enjoy something a little sweet and creamy? Add 2 tablespoons of heavy cream & sugar to taste.
