Expert V60 Brew Guide / Coffee Recipe

Designed by James Hoffman, this comprehensive recipe is aimed at total coffee pros, requiring a full equipment kit.

 

You'll need:

Tip: Making coffee for two people? Just double the amount of ground coffee and water. You’d also need to repeat the pouring procedure and use a coffee server instead of the mug.

Method:

Hario Drip Kettle

1

Boil 250ml water in your Hario drip kettle.

Hario Coffee Grinder

2

Grind 15g of coffee to medium-fine grind.

Tip: A medium to fine grind is best for your pour over. If the brew is too weak, try a finer grind. If the water drips through the coffee too slowly, make the grind coarser.

3

Place the V60 on the mug, insert the filter paper and soak with hot water to remove any papery taste, and to warm the V60 and the mug.

4

Discard the water and place the V60 and the mug on to the scales, tare to zero.

5

Add the coffee grounds, ensuring they are evenly spread.

6

Pour enough water to thoroughly wet the grounds, then wait for around 30 seconds.

Tip: Use filtered water if you can. Water temperature should be around 92-96 ºC.

7

Slowly pour more water, using a circular motion, avoiding the edges where the grounds meet the paper. Stop pouring when the scales read 250g - the whole process should take around 2.5 minutes.

8

Drink and Enjoy.

Tip: Experiment, fine-tune, and enjoy the process until you find your perfect routine.
