Hario V60 Brew Guide

Hario V60 is one of our favorite ways to brew. If you’ve never tried using this brew method, it can seem intimidating. We’ve broken it down into simple steps, watch our Hario V60 Brew Guide, follow the steps, and you’ll be a pour over pro in no time!

TOOLS NEEDED:

MEASUREMENT:

28 grams of coffee and 453 grams (16 oz) of water

GRIND:

Fine – coffee should be about the size of common black pepper

WATER:

Make sure your water reaches a temperature between 195-205 degrees F (92-96 C)

METHOD:

1. Fill gooseneck kettle with water and bring to proper temperature.

2. Place filter inside the cone and pour hot water over filter to rinse thoroughly. Rinsing the filter will get rid of any paper flavors and will preheat the cone and carafe. Be sure to discard water from carafe after rinse.

3. Add the 28 grams of coffee to the filter. Make sure ground coffee is level. Place brewing equipment on scale. Tare scale to zero and start the timer.

THE POUR:

1. Bloom – pour approximately 62 grams of water over the grounds to saturate them evenly. Allow 30 seconds for coffee to degas. Do not rush this 30 second bloom – it lets the coffee degas and prepares the coffee for the rest of the brewing process.

2. After 30 seconds pour the rest of the water over the grounds. Pour in a spiral pattern, starting from the center of the grounds and working outwards towards the edge of the filter to break down the bloom and saturate the grounds evenly. Take care not to pour water over the edges of the paper filter and higher than the grounds themselves, as the water will simply bypass the coffee and fall into the carafe below.

3. There should be about an inch of unused filter from the top of the filter to the bed of grounds. Controlling your pour helps keep coffee grounds in the lower part of the filter.

4. Desired brew time is 3 – 4 minutes

5. Remove cone from carafe, pour and enjoy.
