Similar to it’s electronic counterpart, the automatic drip machine, drip coffee or the Pourover is one of the most simple and elegant ways to manually brew, and is arguably the cleanest way to draw out the best qualities of your coffee.
What you need:
Pourover -v60, filter paper, gram scale, timer, whole beans, grinder, filtered water and your favourite mug.
Now that your cup is warm, empty the water out. Pour the ground coffee into the filter, giving it a slight shake to level the grounds to allow a more even extraction
Pour in 150 grams of hot water, fully wetting the filter and pre-heating the mug. Set aside the remaining 250 grams of water for approximately 45 seconds to reach the desired brewing temperature, which is 94-96 degrees.
Place folded paper filter in the Pourover and sit on top of your mug.
Bring 400ml of water to the boil.
While the water is heating up, weigh out and grind 12-15 grams of coffee. The coarseness should resemble sea salt.
Start timer and pour in 30 grams of water. You want to start in the centre and gently work your way outward. You’ll notice the coffee expand, or ‘bloom’. Let this happen for 30-40 seconds.
Gently pour a further 120 grams of water into the centre. At the one and a half minute mark, continue to pour the remaining 100 grams of water. The whole brew process should take about two and a half to three minutes.
Now it's time to enjoy
