Brewing with a Hario V60

The single cup pour over makes an exceptionally fresh cup without the leftovers. The pour over is a fast method that accentuates the individual flavors of the coffee. The process is straightforward and becomes second nature after a few times. You will see in the directions a lot of measurements and it is easiest to place the entire stand on a kitchen scale to offer some consistency.

1. Grind 20 grams of coffee.

2. Bring the water to a boil and pour over the filter (in the glass/ceramic cone) to pre-wet the filter. Discard the water.

3. Place the grounds in the filter and tare your scale.

4. Pour about 100 grams of water using a spoon to make sure the grounds are wet and in 'solution'.

5. Continue adding water in even intervals until the scale reads 340 grams and let it drain.

The brewing should take about 2 minutes and the variation should be done with the grind size and not quantity. If the cup seems watery and weak try a finer grind, if it takes too long to brew use a coarser grind.
