Our Pour Over Guide
Pour overs are a great and consistent way to make coffee at home. There are many different filter brewers on the market and they are a super easy way to get lots of clarity and flavour in coffee. If you don’t have a gooseneck kettle that’s fine however, we recommend using scales to make sure your brews are super consistent. Try this recipe using filtered water to ensure your cup is vibrant and clean.
Here’s what you’ll need to get started:
- a dripper device
- filter paper
- a timer
- a kettle that finished boiling 1 or 2 minutes before brewing
You Could also use
- a gooseneck kettle
- carafe to brew into
Let’s get brewing!
- Rinse your paper filter. This is just to remove any papery taste and to preheat the brewer.
- Weigh out 20g medium-coarse ground coffee into the cone. We will be using 300g water total with this brew.
- Pour 60g of water onto the coffee grounds and give the cone a spin. This is to saturate the coffee grounds as much as possible.
- Let the coffee sit for 40s.
- At 40s, add half of your remaining brew water, bringing the total up to 180g. If you are pouring without a gooseneck, try and pour moving around the centre of the brewer.
- At 1’10, pour the remaining 120g water in the same fashion bringing the total to 300g.
- After adding your total amount of water, give the cone a good swirl to catch the grounds stuck to the side of the cone. This will make your coffee taste better.
- Your brew should complete between 2’30 and 3’00. If it is much faster, try a finer grind. If it is too slow, try a coarser grind.
- Decant and enjoy.
We recommend a filter roast as it helps draw out the bright and unique sweetness of these coffees.
