What is the correct way to make the best pour-over coffee?

To make the best pour-over coffee, you will need the following equipment: a pour-over coffee maker (such as a Hario V60 or Chemex), a coffee grinder, a kettle, a timer, and a digital scale. Here are the steps:

  1. Boil water in the kettle and let it cool for about 30 seconds. The ideal temperature for pour-over coffee is between 195-205°F (90-96°C).

  2. Grind your coffee beans to a medium-fine consistency, similar to table salt. Use the digital scale to measure the coffee grounds and water precisely. A good starting ratio is 1:16 (1 gram of coffee to 16 grams of water).

  3. Wet the paper filter and place it in the pour-over coffee maker.

  4. Add the coffee grounds to the filter and gently shake the coffee maker to level the grounds.

  5. Place the pour-over coffee maker on top of your coffee mug or carafe.

  6. Start the timer and pour a small amount of hot water (twice the weight of the coffee grounds) over the coffee in a circular motion, saturating all the grounds.

  7. After 30 seconds, pour the remaining water in a slow, steady stream, making sure to keep the water level consistent and the grounds fully saturated. The pouring process should take around 3-4 minutes.

  8. Once all the water has passed through the coffee filter, remove the pour-over coffee maker and discard the used grounds.

  9. Enjoy your freshly brewed pour-over coffee!

Remember to adjust the grind size, water temperature, and coffee-to-water ratio to your taste preferences. With practice and experimentation, you can make the perfect pour-over coffee every time.
