Also known as a V60/Clever or Dripper/Pour-Over. This method has many different names and types of brewer but the principle in all of them is the same. These methods tend to highlight the more delicate qualities of the coffee.
What you'll need
- Drip coffee maker
- Paper filter
- 18g or 3 heaped teaspoons of Fresh ‘Bean to Door’ Coffee
- Kitchen Scales (optional)
- A grinder (optional)
Place a filter into the v60 brewer. Place it on top of a large mug. Pre-rinse the filter with hot water. This step helps to preheat the v60, diminish the “papery” taste imparted by the filter, and ensures an even extraction. Discard the rinsed water from the mug.
Place the v60 and mug on a scale and tare the scale to zero.
Weigh out 18g of whole bean coffee and grind it medium coarse. This corresponds to a sand-like, medium-fine ground. Place the ground coffee into the brew setup on the scale and tare the scale to zero.
Start a timer and carefully pour 50g of 93° C water over the grounds, ensuring that all of the grounds are saturated.
After 1 minute has elapsed on the timer, continue adding water until the scale reads 250g. Pour in a slow steady stream in counter clockwise circles. You may need to stop pouring momentarily to allow some of the water to drain through the filter before adding more water. This step should take between 1-1:30 minutes or until the timer reads 2:00-2:30.
