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. 

4. PRE-WET 

Slowly poor a small amount of water over the grounds (just enough to dampen them) using a circular motion.  

5. PAUSE 

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.
