V60 Guidelines

The V60 Pour Over Method

V60 has become one of the most popular methods when it comes to brewing. From professionals in the coffee shops environment to the aficionados at home who enjoy a good cup of coffee, this method will give you a clean and fruity outcome when brewed properly. 

Because of the V shape and the large hole on the bottom of the brewer this can be a quick way to brew coffee at home, thus we need to consider our technique and grind size in a different way then the immersion methods.

Let us guide you through this well-known method by showing you our recipe and guidelines.

Our Guidelines 

Traditional Method

  • Weigh 15 gr of coffee on the scale and grind it just before you start brewing
  • Place the filter paper into the V60 brewer
  • Start heating your water to the desired temperature (use filtered water as tap water will give the brew a harsh taste) 
  • Place your server on the scale and on top place the V60 
  • Rinse with hot water the filter paper and preheat the brewer and server
  • Add your fresh grinded coffee – 15 g
  • Start your time on the scale
  • Pour gently on top 56 ml of water for the bloom stage which will take 30 sec
  • After 30 sec add 70 ml of water and wait 10 sec
  • After the 10 sec add 125 ml of water, this will bring you up to 250 ml of water, our desired quantity 
  • Gently right after we poured all the water give the brewer a nice swirl to have an even extraction through the bed of coffee
  • Let all the water drip through the coffee bed
  • Remove the brewer from the server, remove spent coffee, clean with hot water, no soap, and place the brewer to dry
  • Enjoy a fresh brew each day
