How we make a perfect pour over at home
Everything you need to prepare
- Coffee dripper
- Coffee filters
- Digital scale
First, bring about 400 ml of water to a boil
Grind 20 grams of coffee (2 tbsp). Depending on the type of coffee, you need a different grind, we recommend coffee: 20 grams per 300 ml of water.
Put a filter in the dropper. Take a No. 2 filter and pour hot water over it, then teach the carafe.
Pour the ground coffee into the filter and tap it gently to level the surface of the soil. Put the dripper on a carafe, put the entire setup on a digital scale and zero it.
There are a total of four pourings for this type of coffee preparation.
This is the first and most magical, because then the coffee will “bloom”.
When hot water hits the ground for the first time, CO2 is released, creating a blooming effect - the ground rises en masse.
Start a timer. Slowly pour water over the coffee, starting on the outer edge and in a steady spiral towards the center of the bottom.
Stop pouring when the scales reach 40 grams.
Make sure the ground coffee is saturated even if you need to add a little water.
It should take about 15 seconds to pour.
Allow the coffee to drain for another 30 seconds before continuing with the second pour.
Start at the center of the filter and pour an even spiral towards the outside edge and then back towards the center.
Be sure to pour over the waves in the filter to the brim.
Add about 60 grams for a total of 100 grams
The goal during this watering is to sink the entire bottom surface of the coffee.
This creates a gentle turbulence and extracts the coffee more evenly.
Wait about 40 to 60 seconds.
When the mixture of water and coffee from the second pour falls to the bottom of the filter and approaches the level of the bottom, pour another 100 grams of water following the same pattern as the second pour.
This brings the total to 200 grams and should take 15 to 20 seconds.
When the water and coffee from the third pour fall to the bottom of the filter, complete the fourth and final pour.
Add 100 grams for a total of 300 grams of water.
This cast should take 20 seconds
