Brew Method - Pour Over

Pour over coffee has become increasingly popular in recent years as more people discover the benefits of this manual brewing method. Pour over coffee gives you complete control over the brewing process, allowing you to make adjustments to the water temperature, grind size, and pour rate to suit your personal preferences. This level of precision results in a cup of coffee that is tailored to your specific tastes.

In this "recipe," we'll make a 10 fl oz cup of coffee with a brew ratio of 1:15.  But this is only a place to start.  Experiment with the overall brewing process to find your perfect brew.


What you'll need:

• pour-over cone (i.e. Hario V60, Kalita Wave, etc.)

• coffee filter

• 20 g freshly ground coffee beans (medium grind)

• gooseneck kettle with 296 g of water (198°F)

• scale

• timer


Step by Step Guide:

1. Set the coffee filter in the pour-over cone and place it on top of your favorite coffee mug.

2. Pour hot water through the filter to eliminate any paper taste and warm the cone and mug. Discard the water.

3. Place the ground coffee into the center of the filter, ensuring an even bed.

4. With your mug/cone on the scale (at zero), start the timer and pour just enough hot water to saturate the coffee grounds.

5. Allow it to bloom for 30 seconds as the coffee releases its initial gases.

6. Begin pouring water in a slow, circular motion, starting from the center and moving outward. Maintain a consistent, controlled pour to evenly saturate the grounds.  Keep an eye on the scale and pour until you reach 296 g of water.

7. Once the water has passed through the grounds, remove and discard the pour-over cone.

8. Enjoy your creation!
