V60 Pour Over Method

The Hario V60 method has become one of the most widely used brewing processes in specialty coffee shops around the world, due to its consistency and the ability it provides to maintain complete control over the strength and body of the coffee. By changing the size of the grind, you can control the speed at which you want to brew the coffee. With a coarse grind, the preparation time will be faster. On the contrary, if you use a finer grind the preparation will take longer.

Faster brewing with the V60 generally results in a brighter, lighter cup. What differentiates this method from the automatic filter is the control over all the preparation variables, from the water temperature to the pouring speed.

Its name comes from the vector 60, the 60-degree angle of its cone. The V60 method was initially made in ceramic and glass, then in plastic and finally in metal.

The V60 is simply composed of a cone and a filter on the cup or carafe in which the coffee will be served. It is one of the simplest methods.

Our Guidelines
Traditional Method
• Weigh 15 gr of coffee on the scale and grind it just before you start brewing
• Place the filter paper into the V60 brewer
• Start heating your water to the desired temperature (use filtered water as tap water will give the brew a harsh taste)

• Rinse with hot water the filter paper and preheat the brewer and server
• Add your fresh grinded coffee – 15 g
