Brewing Coffee Using The Pour Over Method

Brewing Coffee Using The Pour Over Method

Brewing coffee using the pour over is a very manual process, but do not let that deter you. The results are outstanding, producing a cup that is sweet, complex and very clean.

What you’ll need:

  • 32g fresh medium ground filter coffee (consistency of table salt)
  • Gooseneck Kettle
  • Digital Scales
  • V60 Ceramic Cone
  • Filter Paper
  • Boiling Water
  • Stirring spoon
  • Cup/Carafe

See below for our step by step guide for brewing coffee using the pour over method (serves 2 people)

  1. Boil fresh water in a gooseneck kettle. If using a Brewista Electric kettle, set the temperature at 98ºC.
  2. Fold the hem of the paper filter back on itself to create a perfect cone. Place it in the pour over cone and rinse the filter with hot water so it is totally wet and translucent.
  3. Pour 32g of freshly ground filter coffee into the cone to create a flat even bed
  4. Start timer, add 100g of water
  5. At 30 seconds, add 180g (280g total) of hot water to the coffee bed, pouring slowly from the kettle in a circular motion. Once all the water has been added, stir around the edge of the slurry with a spoon in a swift circular motion in order to create a vortex. This will draw the remaining water through the coffee bed and incorporate any dry grinds.
  6. Then, at 1:30, add 150g (430g total) more water in a slow circular motion
  7. Then, at 2:30, add 70g of water to bring your total brew to 500g and stir edge once more
  8. Aim for a brew time of 3:30.
