What You'll Need
Good To Have:
- Dose: 15g of coffee per 250ml of water
- Water Temp: 94°C
- Grind: Medium-Coarse
- Brew Time: 2.5 - 3 minutes
Bring water temperature to 94°C, or just off the boil.
Place a paper filter in the V60 dripper and rinse it with hot brewing water to remove any papery taste and preheat the brewing vessel.
Weigh out 15g of coffee and grind to medium-coarse.
Add coffee grounds to the V60 dripper, and place the entire set up onto a scale and tare to zero.
Start the timer and begin pouring hot water over the coffee grounds, starting from the centre and moving in a spiral pattern outward.
During the first 30 seconds, pour approximately 50 grams of water to saturate the coffee evenly. This is the blooming process.
Between 30 seconds to 1 minute, continue pouring water gradually, aiming for a total of up to 125 grams.
At the 1-minute mark, pour the remaining water to reach a total of 250 grams. Give the V60 dripper a gentle spin to ensure proper extraction.
Allow the coffee to finish brewing, which typically takes around 2.5 - 3 minutes. Remove the V60 dripper and enjoy!
Our Brewing Tips:
- If the coffee tastes too sour or acidic, try using a finer grind size.
- If the coffee tastes flat or bitter, try using a coarser grind size.
- Introducing gentle agitation during the early stages of brewing can enhance extraction and flavours.
- Feel free to experiment with different water temperatures to find the optimal brewing temperature that suits your taste preferences.
- Perfecting pouring technique may take practice, so keep experimenting to achieve desired results.
