Pour-overs allow for greater control over most of the coffee-making variables, in particular the speed and pattern of water pouring. Due to the V60’s conical shape and 60° angle, there is better distribution of coffee inside the device and longer contact of water dripping towards the center. The ribbed interior allows for air flow between the ceramic wall and paper filter, which draws the water downward. This brewing technique creates clean, smooth yet complex flavors, and amplifies the subtleties within the coffee. If you enjoy the slow, careful process of brewing one cup at a time, this technique is for you!
Weigh 20g of coffee and grind to medium-course.
Boil water; let rest for 1 minute. Put the filter into pour over vessel, wet paper filter, and discard water.
Add ground coffee and 30g of water. Wait 30 seconds.
Pour water centrically from the centre to the outside until you reach 200g and wait 30 more seconds.
Add the rest of the water in the same motion until you reach 320g.
Let coffee finish dripping and you are done!
