How To Brew Pour Over

Process Overview

Pour-over brewing is a simple way to brew a clean, bright cup. It brings out subtle nuances in coffee, particularly those with bright, sparkling flavors.


TOTAL TIME: ~5 minutes

MAKES: 290 ml


What you'll need

Paper Filter, Kettle, Dripper V60, Grinder,  Coffee, Scoop, Scale, Server.

Getting Started

Step 2

Measure 20 grams of freshly roasted coffee beans.

Step 3

Fold-down the seam of the paper filter and place it into the pour-over cone so it lies flat. Then rinse the filter with hot water. Grind coffee to the medium-coarse.

Step 4

Discard the hot water and place the pour-over brewer and jug on your scale. Add ground coffee and then zero out or “tare” the scale.

Step 5

Pour just enough water (50 grams, or twice the weight of the coffee grounds) in a spiral motion to saturate the grounds, then wait 30 seconds.

Step 6

At the 30 second mark, resume pouring water over the grounds until your scale reaches 400 grams and your timer reaches 2 minutes. Pour first in a spiral pattern, and then straight down, keeping coffee grounds fully saturated from start to finish.


Give the coffee in your carafe a final swirl. Your coffee is now ready for you to enjoy.
