How to Make Pour Over Coffee
If you love to bring out the nuances of your coffee, or you just like the idea of brewing with low-tech, long-lasting equipment, pour over coffee might be for you. Some even find the ritual itself relaxing. Here’s how to make pour over coffee at home.
What You’ll Need: Pour Over Coffee Maker, Coffee Filter, 18 Ounces Cold Distilled or Filtered Water (Plus a Little More for Rinsing the Filter), Gooseneck Kettle, Thermometer, 6 Tablespoons Coffee Grounds, Timer
Brew Time: ~2 to 4 minutes
1. DAMPEN FILTER
Put the filter in the pour over coffee maker and pour a little water over it to dampen and rinse it. Discard the water.
2. HEAT WATER
Add 18 ounces of water to your kettle and heat it to 205°F. Be careful NOT to bring it to a boil.
3. MEASURE COFFEE
Add 6 tablespoons of 1850® coffee grounds to the filter.
Slowly poor a small amount of water over the grounds (just enough to dampen them) using a circular motion.
Wait 1 minute for the dampened coffee grounds to bloom.
6. FINISH POURING
Slowly pour in the rest of the hot water, again using a circular motion. Then serve and enjoy.
