V60

A V60 dripper is arguably the simplest and cleanest way to draw out a coffee’s best qualities. This pour-over method is elegant without being extremely difficult. For those accustomed to coffee from a drip machine, this method will produce a similar style of coffee but with noticeably more delicate characteristics.

Instructions

 

  1. Fold the filter in a cone shape and place it in the V60 dripper, then set it on top of the mug.
  2. Rinse the filter with hot water to seal it to the walls of the V60 dripper. Dump the rinse water.
  3. Add 23 g of ground coffee to the center of the filter. 
  4. Place the mug and V60 dripper on the scale and zero it.
  5. Add enough hot water to saturate all the coffee grounds, then stir to make sure there are no dry clumps. Let the coffee bloom for about 15 seconds. 
  6. Add more hot water using a continuous, steady stream. Pour in a circular motion. The water level should only rise to just above the coffee grounds.
  7. Continue this pouring method until about 360 g of water has been drained into the mug - this should take about 3 minutes.
  8. Remove the brewer and swirl the mug a bit to mix the finished brew.
