The Hario V60 makes pour over brewing simple for everyone and is a convenient method for making a delicious single cup of coffee. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to use the V60.
What You’ll Need:
- Hario V60 dripper
- V60 paper filter
- Kettle (Gooseneck preferred)
- Grinder (Burr preferred)
- Timer & Digital Scale
How to Brew:
Step 1: Bring the water in your kettle to a boil and let sit for 30 seconds.
Step 2: Fold your filter along the seamed edge and place inside your V60 dripper. Place the dripper on top of your mug.
Step 3: Pour some of your hot water over the filter to rinse it. This will not only secure the filter in the dripper, but also get rid of any paper tastes that could transfer to your coffee. Discard the rinse water from your mug.
Step 4: Weigh out your fresh coffee beans (you’ll want about 15 grams of coffee to 300 grams of water – adjust to your taste if necessary). Grind the beans to a medium fine consistency.
Step 5: Pour your grounds into the filter and gently shake to settle them. Make sure your mug and dripper are sitting on your scale, and tare to zero.
Step 6: Start your timer and begin pouring water over the grinds. Pour just enough to cover the grinds (about 40 grams) and allow the coffee to bloom for about 30 seconds.
Step 7: After 30 seconds is up, being pouring more water into the filter. Pour continuously in small circles around the center of the dripper. Keep pouring until your scale reads 300 grams.
Step 8: Allow all the water to drain through the filter. Your total brew time should come to about 3 minutes. Remove the filter from the dripper and discard the grounds.
Step 9: Enjoy a fresh cup of delicious coffee courtesy of your Hario V60!
