The Perfect Pour Over

A cup of coffee, in our humble opinion, should be the beginning of any good day, or perhaps, simply the beginning of ANYTHING good. And here’s how to brew a consistently perfect cup.

Serving Size:
These instructions are for a 12oz serving (we’re using a 1:15 brewing ratio)

Brew Time:
Approximately 3 minutes

Step One

Grab all your goodies (i.e. coffee beans, scale, server or mug, ceramic funnel, and kettle).

Step Two

Set water to boil. While it boils, measure and grind 22.5g of coffee. Coffee grinds should feel like sand. 

Step Three

When water is at a boil (or ideally between 195-200 degrees) wash filter out and then dump out refuse water. 

Step Four

Pour coffee grinds into the filter and then pour in 55-60g of water. Make sure to keep the coffee grinds wet, never letting them dry out.

Step Five

In intervals of between 25-30 seconds and in a circular motion, keep pouring. It should take about 6 intervals to reach 336g (12oz) of water.  

Step Six

Pour into your favorite drinking apparatus and enjoy.
