The ultimate in achieving a single perfect fresh cup.

Watch the video below or scroll down for step-by-step directions.

WHAT YOU NEED: Whole Bean Coffee | Melitta Style Brewer & Filters | Kettle | Timer | Scale

PRO-TIP: There are plenty of different shaped pour overs you can try. V60, Kalita & Beehouse are a few. Experiment with coarser or finer grind and find what you like best!

Step 1.

MEASURE: Use scale to weigh coffee according to above chart. Heat water on the stove or electric kettle set to 200-205°F

Step 2.

GRIND: Grind coffee to a medium fine consistency, a bit finer than sand.

Step 3.

FILTER: Fold Melitta filter along the perforated edge. Place inside brewer and set above the cup you’ll be drinking out of.

Step 4.

PRE-WET: Pour a few oz of hot water over the filter to rinse. Discard water and place cone back on top of the cup.

Step 5.

BLOOM: Pour coffee into filter and shake to settle. Start your timer and being to pour water. Start with just enough to immerse the grounds. Wait 30-45 seconds before adding more water.

Step 6.

BREW: Add water by slowly pouring over the coffee in a circular manner.

PRO-TIP: When pouring in a circle, you are creating ‘turbulence’. Avoid the already light areas and pour into the darker spots. This allows the grinds to gently extract.

Step 7.

FINISH: Allow coffee to drip through. Total brew time should be between 2-3 minutes depending on batch size. Enjoy!

Jim's notes:

This is a fast brew time which yields higher acidity, more aromatics and a brighter taste. With repetition, this method can be faster than a pod brewer and the coffee is a 1,000% better!
