Hario V60 pour-over parameters and technique.....

Recommended Posts

I prefer listening to Elvis Costello while I'm doing my pour over.

Wouldn't it have been nice if he told us how finely the coffee was ground?  How fresh it was? What type of water he was using?

What works best for me is actually a coarser grind than is always recommended, as I put in about 21g or so, to more or less fill a 12 oz mug.

 

 

Also, right now I have no coffee in the house. Time to go to that place Mitch was talking about in another thread....

No, Qualia, in DC. But I might just get lazy and get some La Colombe since it's so much closer

So far I'm not especially impressed with the V60.

I can get a superior cup with an inverted AeroPress and fine-tuned parameters.

I will keep trying.

I always think in this order:

 

Coffee

Water

Grinder

 

After all that, technique and the coffeemaker become important.

A coarser grind does help but I'm still not getting as a cup as with the inverted AeroPress and the Able Brewing fine disk.
