This brew method is known for accentuating the flavour clarity of a coffee. The gentle stream of water used to brew, as well as the delicate fibres of a paper filter prevent fine particles from entering the cup.
Pour over showcases the subtle, more nuanced notes of a coffee that a more full-bodied brew method would muddy. Less fines also heighten the drinker’s ability to perceive acids, and can make coffees “sparkle” with acidity that would be lost in other brew methods.
- 1. Coffee grounds are poured into a filtered V60 Cone.
- 2. Hot water is poured from a kettle over the grounds and stirred for even extraction.
- 3. The water draws down gently through the filter into a vessel below, resulting in a very clean cup of coffee.
