Steps

1
Done

Heating the Water

Heat Your Water Start by heating the water to just off the boil. This temperature is optimal for extracting the flavors from your coffee grounds. Let the water cool slightly for about 30 seconds after boiling.

2
Done

Measure and Grind Your Coffee

Measure the coffee beans based on your preferred coffee-to-water ratio. A common starting point is using a 1:16 coffee-to-water ratio, but feel free to adjust this to your taste. For example, if you're using 20 grams of coffee, you'll need about 320 grams of water.
Grind your coffee beans to a medium-coarse consistency, similar to kosher salt. A burr grinder is recommended for consistent particle size.

3
Done

Prep the Dripper and Filter

Place the paper or metal filter in the pour-over dripper. If using a paper filter, rinse it with hot water to eliminate any papery taste and preheat the dripper and the cup or carafe. Discard the rinse water.

4
Done

Add Coffee Grounds

Add the ground coffee to the prepped dripper. Gently shake the dripper to level the coffee bed, ensuring even extraction.

5
Done

Bloom the Coffee

Start your timer and pour just enough hot water over the coffee grounds to saturate them. This is called the "bloom." Allow the coffee to bloom for around 30 seconds. During this time, you'll see the coffee grounds puff up and release gases.

6
Done

Start Pouring

After the bloom, slowly start pouring water in a controlled, circular motion, starting from the centre and moving outward. This ensures even saturation of the grounds. Use a gooseneck kettle for precise control over the pouring speed and direction. Continue pouring water in stages, keeping the water level in the dripper consistent but not overflowing. Aim to pour in a way that maintains a gentle turbulence in the coffee bed. This helps to extract flavours evenly.

7
Done

Finish Brewing

Once you've poured all the water and the coffee has dripped through the filter, your pour-over coffee is ready. The brewed coffee should be aromatic and flavourful. Carefully remove the dripper from the cup or carafe. Give the coffee a gentle swirl to ensure even distribution of flavors. Then, pour the brewed coffee into your favorite mug and enjoy the rich, aromatic goodness you've crafted.
