Perfect Single Servings • Clear Flavors • Light & Medium Roasts
Pour overs are a great way to make a single cup of coffee or make several different coffees without anything going to waste. It can sound fairly complicated to a novice but not to worry, we’re here to make it easy for you.
What You’ll Need
Pour Over Brewer
350ml of Filtered or Bottled Water
21g of Medium Ground Coffee
NOTE Please make sure to weight and measure everything accurately!
Add a paper filter to your pour over brewer and place it over your mug or carafe. You’ll want to use medium grinds for this recipe so set your mug and brewer on top of your scales and zero out the weight – add 21g of medium sized grounds to the filter and tap the sides to even out the top of coffee layer.
To bloom your coffee, you’ll need double the amount of water as you have grinds so, in this case, 42ml. Pour the boiled water over the grinds slowly, making sure to get all of the dry pockets in the process. Wait 30 seconds for the coffee grinds to completely bloom and then move on to the next step.
You’ll want your water about 20 seconds off the boil for it to be the perfect temperature. Start pouring half your water slowly in spirals to begin with, stopping to let the water levels drop. You’re going to need to practice this part quite a bit, but it’s about getting a steady flow that isn’t too fast or slow.
Keep an eye on your coffee as the water drips through. You want overall brewing time to be in the 2:30 to 3:30 minutes range so make any adjustments to your pouring accordingly. Once you can see the tops of your coffee grounds, you’re ready to remove the brewer from your mug. Don’t let the last drops of water into your much otherwise you’ll end up with a bitter coffee.
Your coffee is now ready to serve!
