Brewing Method: Pour Over


Pour Over - Hario V60

POUR OVER

It’s nothing you can’t do, with a whole lot of flavor


Background

Crafting your own pour over takes some practice, but it’s something you can be proud of, because it’s yours! Kick the bells and whistles to the curbs, wasteful plastic, and brew coffee the therapeutic way. It’s all you, and a bit of technique. There isn’t a steep learning curve, just embrace the process. The end result: a cup that appears to be one made with a coffee maker; however, nuanced, multifaceted, and exquisite.

Step 5

There will be four pours throughout this brewing method. The first is very special, you’ll experience the “bloom.” This is when Co2 gases are released, creating a blossoming effect—the grounds will rise up en masse.


Start your timer. Slowly pour water over the coffee starting with the outer rim steadily spiraling toward the center of the grounds. Stop pouring when the scale reaches 80 grams. Evenly saturate all the grounds, always targeting the darker areas first. Let your
