pour over coffee - The Caffeine Baar

The pour over method involves pouring hot water through coffee grounds in a filter. As it's a longer brewing process, there's a more intricate flavor extraction which allows flavors and aroma to shine.

Ingredients for 1 cup of Pour Over Coffee

  1. Ground Coffee (medium) - 17gm

  2. Hot Water (90°C - 95°C) - 240ml

Preparation of Pour Over Coffee

  1. Pour filtered water into the kettle and bring to 94°C.

  2. Fold the Pour Over/V60 paper filter along the seam and place in the cone.

  3. Position this set up over the cup/dripper.

  4. Pour some hot water over the paper filter to remove any papery taste. Discard this water.

  5. Place the setup on an electric scale and add the ground coffee.

  6. Tap to evenly displace the ground coffee and note the weight of the setup with the coffee.

  7. Start the timer and slowly pour in 34 ml of water in a uniform spiral movement, starting from the centre of the grinds, slowly moving outwards, and then back towards the centre.

  8. Let bloom for 30 seconds.

  9. In the same movements, pour the rest of the water within 1 and a half minutes.

  10. The time needed for the last pour to filter out should be about one minute.

  11. Swirl and drink.
