One of the most inexpensive ways to enjoy great coffee. The Hario V60 pour-over dripper has spiralling ribs on the inside of the wall leading to a large hole, which encourage the brew into the cup and prevent the paper filter from sticking to the inside of the cone.
Easy to use, simple to clean – take it with you anywhere. Brilliant!
Use 60g ground coffee per litre of water – (for 400ml water you’ll need 24g of coffee )
Grind your coffee fairly finely – you should feel the grinds between your fingers but it should be just slightly coarser than an espresso grind but finer than for a Chemex
Wet the filter paper and warm the cup with hot water, then discard. Place the coffee in the centre of the paper cone.
Put your cup and Hario Dripper on a set of scales and tare (zero). Pour 80g of water over the coffee so that it “blooms” – this just allows the grinds to get wet and expand, freeing the coffee solids within the grind. Leave for 30 secs
Pour the rest of the water slowly into the cone
Try to aim for about 2 ½ minutes for the full amount of water to drip through. Adjust your grind accordingly. You’ll get it spot on as you practise more
