How to brew a V60
- A favorite for at-home brewing and a must-have in the home of both beginner and advanced at-home coffee brewers.
- Designed and produced by Hario in Japan.
- Hario was founded back in 1921, but in its short history since then, its popularity has grown immensely, with its equipment being sold worldwide
- Longer brewing process, but the dripper provides delightful flavors, a slow drip, and a clean cup when the last drop has been emptied. This result is just simply unattainable through the use of other methods.
Want to try making the perfect V60 cup? Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 V60
- V60 Filter paper
- 1 grinder (if needed)
- 1 scale
- 26g of Medium-Ground, quality coffee.
- 1 kettle
- 340ml of filtered water
This recipe produces 295ml of coffee.
- Fold the seam of the V60 filter and place it in the cone.
- Rinse both under hot water to eliminate the paper taste and ensure consistent heat during the brewing process.
- Boil water to ideal temperature (±92 degrees Celcius)
- Grind your coffee to a medium/fine ground
- Slowly and carefully pour approximately 40-50ml of water over the ground coffee.
REMINDER: Do not pour water on the filter. This avoids adding a papery taste to your coffee.
- Check that all grinds are fully saturated with water
- Allow the water to bloom here for 40 seconds.
- When the timer goes off, pour the remaining heated water into the mixture,
- Do so very slowly, consistently, and carefully.
The brewing time should finish around three minutes.
When 3 minutes have passed, you are ready to pour your coffee into your mug and enjoy! Let it cool down a bit to get more of the fruity flavours.
