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
See below for our step by step guide for brewing coffee using the pour over method (serves 2 people)
- Boil fresh water in a gooseneck kettle. If using a Brewista Electric kettle, set the temperature at 98ºC.
- 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.
- Pour 32g of freshly ground filter coffee into the cone to create a flat even bed
- Start timer, add 100g of water
- 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.
- Then, at 1:30, add 150g (430g total) more water in a slow circular motion
- Then, at 2:30, add 70g of water to bring your total brew to 500g and stir edge once more
- Aim for a brew time of 3:30.
