WHAT YOU NEED:

  • Pour over brewer. This will sit on top of your carafe or mug.
  • Paper filters
  • Kettle
  • Filtered Water. Around 200 degrees
  • Medium ground coffee. Very important to have the right grind size. Pour over is an infusion method and over or under grinded coffee can affect the infusion.
  • Scale (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Grind coffee beans. Medium grind is recommended
  2. Filter. Wash paper filter before placing it on. This help prevents paper taste.
  3. Add Beans. Pour your beans on the filter. *Coffee grounds to water ratio should be between 1.5-2 grams of coffee per fluid ounce of water* Ratio can be adjusted based on your preference. The amount of coffee determines the strength of the coffee.
  4. Bloom. Pour water (around 200 degrees) in a circular motion. Make sure you wet all the coffee grounds with water. DO NOT leave any spots dry. Only add enough water to saturate the grounds; stop before the water drips from the bottom.
  5. Wait. After you saturated the grounds, wait for 30-45 seconds.
  6. Pour water. Pour remaining water. This part takes a lot of practice. Don’t pour too fast or too slow. If your water comes to the top, stop or slow down.
  7. Drip. Watch as your water drips through filter. Depending on the speed of the drip will let you know if you grinded your beans too coarse or too fine.
  8. Enjoy! Serve your coffee into a mug and drink.
