The Pour Over Method focuses on a percolation brew, which is when water filters through the coffee beans. Although the method is a little more involved than the french press or AeroPress, there is more control over the flavour.

The Pour Over Method


The water to coffee ratio can be adjusted according to your taste, but we recommend 60g/L (i.e. 6 heaped teaspoons per standard cup).

Building your Coffee:

  1. Boil fresh water. 
  2. Place a paper filter into the brewer and rinse with hot water to preheat the device. Discard that water.
  3. Grind coffee to medium coarseness (we offer a free grinding service with all coffee purchased!).
  4. Add your coffee to the brewer and place it on top of the cup.
  5. Place this on a scale and begin slowly pouring hot water to saturate the coffee and let it bloom for 30 seconds.
  6. Slowly pour 50g of water every 30 seconds until a total of 250g is achieved.
  7. Let all water drip through until the bed of coffee looks dry (that should ideally take 3-4 min)
  8. Remove the brewer from your cup
  9. Enjoy!
