Pour over coffee is a manual brewing method that allows you to control every aspect of the brewing process, resulting in a perfectly brewed cup of coffee every time. The pour over method is simple, yet elegant, and the results are consistently delicious. In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to make pour over coffee at home.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Pour over cone
- Paper filter
- Coffee grounds
- Hot water
- Kettle or heated pitcher
- Mug or carafe
Place a paper filter in your pour over cone and rinse it with hot water. This will help to remove any paper flavor and also preheat the cone.
Add coffee grounds to the cone. A general rule of thumb is to use 1 to 2 tablespoons of coffee for every six ounces of water. You can adjust the amount of coffee to your personal taste.
Pour a small amount of hot water over the grounds to “bloom” them. This helps to release the coffee’s natural gases and results in a more flavorful cup of coffee.
Slowly pour the remaining hot water over the grounds in a circular motion. Be sure to pour the water evenly over the grounds to ensure an even extraction.
Wait for the coffee to fully drain into your mug or carafe. The entire process should take about 2-3 minutes.
And that’s it! You’ve just made a delicious cup of pour over coffee. The pour over method is a great way to make coffee for one or two people, and it’s also a great way to experiment with different coffee blends and brewing techniques. So, why not try it for yourself today? Happy brewing!
