WHAT YOU NEED:
- Pour over brewer. This will sit on top of your carafe or mug.
- Paper filters
- 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)
- Grind coffee beans. Medium grind is recommended
- Filter. Wash paper filter before placing it on. This help prevents paper taste.
- 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.
- 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.
- Wait. After you saturated the grounds, wait for 30-45 seconds.
- 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.
- 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.
- Enjoy! Serve your coffee into a mug and drink.
