The V60 coffee is a specific pour-over coffee brewing method that uses a conical-shaped dripper called the "Hario V60." It's a popular brewing method known for producing a clean, flavorful cup of coffee with distinct and nuanced flavors. The "V60" comes from the 60-degree angle of the cone's walls, which is a key feature of this brewing device.

Here's a step-by-step guide on how to make coffee using the V60 pour-over method:

Ingredients and equipment:

  1. Freshly ground coffee beans (medium-coarse grind)

  2. Hot water (just off the boil)

  3. Hario V60 dripper

  4. V60 paper filter

  5. Coffee kettle or gooseneck kettle

  6. Coffee scale (optional but helpful)

  7. Timer

Step 1: Prepare the V60 dripper Place a V60 paper filter into the dripper section and set it on top of your coffee carafe or mug. Rinse the filter with hot water to remove any paper taste and preheat the V60 and your carafe/mug. Discard the rinse water.

Step 2: Measure the coffee grounds Weigh out your coffee grounds using a coffee scale for precision. A standard coffee-to-water ratio is 1:15 to 1:17, meaning 1 gram of coffee for every 15 to 17 grams of water. You can adjust the ratio based on your taste preferences.

Step 3: Add coffee grounds to the V60 dripper Place the medium-coarse ground coffee into the pre-wetted paper filter in the V60 dripper.

Step 4: Bloom the coffee Start the timer and pour just enough hot water over the coffee to saturate them fully. The amount of water for blooming should be around twice the weight of the coffee grounds. Let the coffee bloom for about 30 seconds. Blooming allows the coffee to release trapped gases and leads to a more even extraction.

Step 5: Main pour After the blooming period, slowly pour the remaining hot water over the coffee grounds in a circular motion. Pour in a steady and controlled manner, starting from the center and moving outward. Try to keep the water level steady, avoiding pouring directly on the sides of the filter.

Step 6: Control the brew time Aim for a total brew time of about 2.5 to 3 minutes. Adjust your pouring speed to control the extraction rate. A slower pour will extend the brew time, while a faster pour will speed it up.

Step 7: Let the coffee drip Once you've finished pouring, let the coffee drip through the V60 dripper into your carafe or mug until it's completely brewed.

Step 8: Serve and enjoy Pour the freshly brewed V60 coffee into your favorite cup and enjoy the delicate and nuanced flavors it has to offer.

Step 9: Clean the V60 dripper After you finish brewing and enjoying your coffee, remove the V60 paper filter with the used coffee grounds and rinse the V60 dripper with warm water. It's easy to clean and ready for your next brewing session.

The V60 pour-over method is loved by coffee enthusiasts for its ability to highlight the unique characteristics of different coffee beans, making it a fantastic way to explore various coffee flavors. Enjoy your V60 coffee brewing journey!
