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

Supplies: 

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!
