The Pour-Over Method focuses on a percolation brew, which is when water filters through the coffee beans. Although the method is particular, there is more control over how the coffee is brewed, and in return, control over the flavour.
The Pour-Over Method
- Water (As a general suggest, we would recommend
60g/L i.e ~6 heaping teaspoons per cup)
- Any of our Velo coffees!
- If you are interested in the temperature control kettle used in the video you can find it here
Remember that the water to coffee ratio can be adjusted according to your taste
Building your Coffee:
- Boil fresh water.
- Place a paper filter into the brewer and rinse with hot water to preheat the device. Discard that water.
- Grind coffee as required (we offer a free grinding service with all coffee purchased!).
- Add your coffee to the brewer and place it on top of the cup.
- Place this on a scale and begin slowly pouring hot water (ideally 94℃) to saturate the coffee and let it bloom for 30 seconds.
- Slowly pour 50g of water every 30 seconds until a total of 250g is achieved.
- Let all water drip through until the bed of coffee looks dry (that should ideally take 3-4 min)
- Remove the brewer from your cup
