Coffee Brewing Methods
The V60 pour-over method is a popular way to make a delicious and flavourful cup of coffee. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to use the V60 pour-over method:
- V60 pour-over dripper
- V60 paper filter
- Medium-Course ground coffee
- Hot water (about 200°F or 93°C)
- Coffee mug
- Gooseneck kettle (optional)
- Boil water to the desired temperature, around 200°F or 93°C.
- Place the V60 paper filter in the V60 dripper and place it on top of your coffee mug.
- Rinse the paper filter with hot water to remove any paper taste and to preheat the mug. Discard the water in the mug.
- Add 30grams of coffee to the V60 dripper.
- Pour a small amount of hot water (~ 60ml) over the coffee grounds to wet them and let them "bloom" for about 30 seconds. This will help release the flavours and aromas of the coffee. Stir briefly
- Slowly pour hot water over the coffee grounds in a circular motion, starting from the centre and moving outwards, until the 500 ml of water is added. Pausing at 300 ml to let the coffee drip through, then continuing to 500 ml.
- Allow the coffee to drip through the V60 dripper and into the mug. The entire process should take 2-3 minutes.
- Once the coffee has finished dripping, discard the used coffee grounds and paper filter.
- Enjoy your freshly brewed cup of V60 pour-over coffee!
Note: If you are using a gooseneck kettle, it will give you better control over the pouring speed and direction. However, it is not necessary, and a regular kettle or even a pot can be used.
