V60 Pour Over Brewing Guide

V60 Pour Over Brewing Guide

What beans? Filter beans

What grind? You are going for a medium to coarse grind. The Mini Mill is able to grind well for this.

Brewing Tips
Harios iconic V60 is about as recognisable as speciality coffee kit gets. It is a very simple setup with very few variables that can go terribly wrong. 

Simple Brew Notes (2 cups):

  1. Boil a bit more than 500ml water
  2. Place the filter into the dripper and wet it (pouring hot tap water through it will do)
  3. Grind 30gm beans (medium), empty into the dripper, shake flat, then press your thumb to create a depression in the centre of the grounds.
  4. Pour 60ml of the near boiling (the hotter the better) water into the grounds then hold the dripper carefully and swirl the slurry. Wait 30 seconds
  5. Pour the rest of the water steadily, once it's near the top keep topping up until the 500ml is done then give a little stir in both directions (not too deep)
  6. When it's done, you ideally will have a flat bed of used beans and it should have taken 3 - 4 minutes (if not adjust stir/pour method and/or the grind next time)
