Brew with the Hario V60
250 ml / 90-92 °C
2 - 3 min
Achieving a balanced and delicious cup of coffee requires precision in measurements. Begin by gathering all the necessary equipment: Hario V60 dripper, Hario V60 filter, a scale, 15 grams of medium-ground coffee, 250 ml (grams) of water heated to 90-92°C, gooseneck kettle, and a timer.
Setting up the Dripper
Place the Hario V60 dripper on a sturdy mug or server and insert the filter. Rinse the filter with hot water to preheat the dripper and remove any paper taste. Discard the rinse water. Add precisely 15 grams of ground coffee to the filter, ensuring even distribution.
The Bloom Pour
Start the timer and pour 40 grams of hot water over the coffee, creating a bloom pour. Give the dripper a gentle swirl to ensure all the grounds are saturated. Allow the coffee to bloom for approximately 30 seconds.
After the bloom pour, give the Hario V60 dripper a gentle swirl to ensure all the grounds are properly saturated. This step helps to promote an even extraction and maximize the flavor potential of your brew.
Pouring the Water
Pouring the Water
Continuing with a slow, steady circular motion, pour the remaining water in two equal pours. Pour approximately 105 grams of water for each pour, maintaining a consistent pour rate in a clockwise motion. Ensure the water level remains above the coffee bed without overflowing the dripper.
After each pour, wait for about 30 seconds to allow the water level to drop and the coffee bed to settle. This waiting time promotes balanced extraction and enhances the overall flavor profile.
Finishing and Brew Time
Once all the water has passed through the coffee bed, give the dripper a final gentle swirl to flatten the coffee bed and ensure even extraction. The total brew time, from the beginning of the bloom pour to the end, should be approximately 2 and 3 minutes.
Enjoying the Coffee
Discard the filter and coffee grounds. Serve and savor your perfectly balanced and freshly brewed Hario V60 coffee!
Note: Using a scale allows for precise measurement, ensuring consistency in your brewing process.
Feel free to adjust the grind size, water temperature, and brew time according to your taste preferences. Experimentation is key to finding the perfect balance that suits your palate.
