James Wilkins

What you will need:

  • Hario V60 dripper
  • Filter paper
  • Freshly roasted coffee beans
  • Filtered / bottled water
  • Kettle
  • Pouring device
  • Weighing scales
  • Stopwatch

Brew instructions:

  1. Begin bringing your filtered / bottled water to the desired temperature – 100 degrees Celsius
  2. Fold the seam edge of the filter paper over and place into the V60 dripper
  3. Place the dripper onto your cup / decanter and onto your scales - tare the scales
  4. Once the water reaches 100 degrees Celsius, pour into your pouring device
  5. Using the hot water, rinse and wash the V60 filter paper. This removes paper taints and pre-heats the dripper and cup. Discard the water
  6. Place 15g of ground coffee into the dripper. Flatten the bed
  7. Pour 30g of water onto the bed of coffee, agitate the bed and wait 35 - 40 seconds for the bloom to finish.
  8. Quickly pour water in a circular motion, whilst remaining in the centre of the dripper until you reach 130 g
  9. Then slowly continue to pour until you reach 250g
  10. The total brew time including bloom period should be 2:30
  11. Remove the dripper, drink and enjoy!
