The Ultimate Guide on How to Make Pour-Over Coffee: A Step-by-Step Tutorial

Part 1: Equipment needed

  1. Pour-Over Coffee Maker
  2. Paper Street Coffee Coarsely ground
  3. Hario V60 Paper Filters
  4. Gooseneck Kettle

    Part 2: The Perfect Coffee-to-Water Ratio

    Achieving the right coffee-to-water ratio is vital for a well-balanced cup of pour-over coffee. A standard ratio to start with is 1:15, which means using 1 gram of coffee for every 15 grams of water. Adjust the ratio according to your taste preferences and the coffee beans you're using.

    Part 3: Step-by-Step Brewing Process

    Step 1: Heat Water

    Begin by heating filtered water to about 190°F - 200°F (93°C). Boiling water is too hot and can scorch the coffee, affecting the flavor.

    Step 2: Rinse the Filter

    Place the coffee filter in your pour-over coffee maker and rinse it with hot water to remove any paper taste and preheat the brewer. Discard the water.

    Step 3: Add Coffee Grounds

    Add the ground coffee to the prepped filter and place the pour-over coffee maker on top of your coffee mug or carafe. We suggest 28 grams of coffee and 420 grams of water.

    Step 4: Bloom the Coffee

    Start the brewing process by pouring just enough water over the coffee grounds to saturate them. Allow the coffee to bloom for about 30 seconds, releasing carbon dioxide and ensuring an even extraction.

    Step 5: Start Pouring

    With a slow, circular motion, begin pouring the hot water over the coffee grounds, evenly covering them. Avoid pouring directly onto the edges of the filter to prevent channeling.

    Step 6: Control the Pour

    Maintain a steady pour, ensuring the water level remains constant without flooding the coffee bed. Aim to complete the pour within 2-3 minutes.

    Step 7: Let it Drip

    Allow the coffee to drip through the filter until the brewing process is complete. The ideal brew time is typically 3-4 minutes.

    Step 8: Enjoy Your Perfect Pour-Over Coffee

    Once the coffee has finished dripping, remove the pour-over coffee maker, and enjoy your freshly brewed pour-over coffee! Savor the unique flavors and aromas with every sip.
