Nuanced and versatile, the Hario Pour over is an elegant brewer for those who want to perfect the pour and enjoy the character of coffee. It’s great for folks who are looking for complete control over brewing extraction. The key here is to pour slow.
What you need
- Hario V60 brewer
- Hario V60 filter
- 18gm (2 & half spoon Tablespoons) of ground coffee
- Hot water just off the boil (about 90 degree)
Grind 21 grams (about 3 Tablespoons) of coffee to be about as fine as kosher salt.
Fold the filter into a cone shape and rinse it in the Hario dripper with water just off the boil to eliminate paper flavor and to heat up the mug you are brewing into. Discard the rinse water.
Heat the water to 92 degree. Pour 50 ml water & Let it bloom for 30 seconds. Coffee de-gasses or “blooms” when it’s fresh–the coffee bed should raise up and bubble a bit.
Pour rest of the 200 ml water slowly and in spiral motion. Finish the pouring in 2.3 secs and finish the entire brewing in 2.4 to 3mins. Remove brewer and enjoy the coffee
