Brew Guide: How to Brew with a Hario V60

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
  • Mug
  • 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!

Coffee Care Tips

If you’re a coffee lover, like all of us here at Hot Coffee Club, then you probably care as much about your coffee as you do a loved one. So, here’s some tips on keeping coffee fresh and and how to store and care for your coffee.

 

# 1 The Fridge is Your Enemy

We can’t stress enough how important it is to keep your coffee from being exposed to the elements. This means you definitely shouldn’t be putting your coffee in the fridge or freezer. Always store your coffee at room temperature.

(The same goes for heat – don’t store your coffee in that cupboard over the oven.)

 

# 2 Keep Things Airtight

Keep your coffee beans stored in an airtight container. This protects your coffee from light and moisture – two things that will quickly make your coffee stale. Our bags that we ship in here at Hot Coffee Club work great. Most containers you buy coffee in from the store are inadequate at keeping your coffee fresh.

# 3 Quantity Matters

Coffee beans begin to lose their freshness pretty quickly. So you shouldn’t buy coffee in large amounts unless absolutely necessary. Buy enough coffee to last you for 1 to 2 weeks to ensure you are drinking a fresh cup each day. We’ve noticed that coffee tends to be at the right age between 3-5 days from roasting. Remember, when you buy from Hot Coffee Club, we roast and ship typically the same day so it gets to you on those freshest days!

 

What makes for a good cup of coffee?

Everyone has different preferences when it comes to what they consider to be “good” coffee. Some like it black, some with cream and sugar, some with soy milk – but what are the rules that hold true for making every cup of coffee taste good? Let’s explore –

Freshness

This might be the most important of all aspect of making a good cup of coffee. The last thing you want is stale coffee grounds making for a stale cup of coffee. So what do you do to ensure your coffee stays fresh? DO NOT put your coffee in the fridge! Always store your coffee at room temperature, in an airtight container. This will ensure that your coffee isn’t exposed to any outside elements that would alter the taste.

Grinding your coffee beans just before you make a cup of coffee will also help to give you a good, fresh cup. Ground coffee goes stale much faster than whole beans – so never grind a whole bag of beans at once. Avoid buying ground coffee – buy whole bean coffee (like ours!) and your own grinder to make the perfect cup of coffee at home.

 

From there, the rest is mostly up to you! Play the field a little and try out different roasts and brewing methods. (Keep an eye out for an upcoming Brewing guides post). If you always drink your coffee with cream and sugar – try it black one day. You may end up changing your mind about what makes for a good cup of coffee!
