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!
MEASURE: Use scale to weigh coffee according to above chart. Heat water on the stove or electric kettle set to 200-205°F
GRIND: Grind coffee to a medium fine consistency, a bit finer than sand.
FILTER: Fold Melitta filter along the perforated edge. Place inside brewer and set above the cup you’ll be drinking out of.
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.
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.
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.
FINISH: Allow coffee to drip through. Total brew time should be between 2-3 minutes depending on batch size. Enjoy!
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!
