Brew Time: 3 Minutes
Pourovers are intimidating, we know. There are so many choices – grind size, how the water should be poured, even whether or not the grind bed should be even – that all come down to preference. We’re here to make it easy for you. Get your V60 and follow these instructions to make a great cup every time.
Boil your water to 95 degrees and rinse your filter to ensure no paper taste gets into your cup.
Grind 22 grams of coffee to a medium-fine setting, like kosher salt. Place in V60 and ensure grind bed is flat.
Pour 50g of water in a slow, even spiral. Let sit or “bloom” for 20 seconds.
Now, pour until you reach 350g on the scale, using the same slow and even spiral, which will ensure a proper extraction.
Your brewing should be finished around the 3:00 mark!
If your brew time is much over 3 minutes, try adjusting your grind to be coarser. If the water flows through too quickly, you will have an under-extracted cup, and you need to grind your coffee to be finer. It may take a couple of tries to get the hang of it, but don’t give up!
