Pour Over - test

  • Grind & Prep: Grind your coffee beans to a medium-fine consistency, similar to table salt. Fold a paper filter to fit your dripper and place it on top of your carafe. Rinse the filter with hot water to remove any paper taste and preheat your carafe (optional).

  • Bloom: Add your desired amount of coffee grounds (a good starting point is 1-2 tablespoons per 6 ounces of water) to the filter. Pour a small amount of hot water (just enough to saturate the grounds) and let it sit for 30 seconds. This "bloom" releases CO2 and allows for even extraction.

  • Slow & Steady Pour: Begin pouring the remaining hot water (ideally just off boiling, around 200°F) in a slow, circular motion starting from the center and moving outwards. Aim for a consistent stream and avoid pouring directly on the filter.

  • Maintain Flow: Keep pouring until the carafe reaches your desired amount, ensuring all the grounds are saturated. The ideal pour time is around 2-3 minutes. Adjust the pouring speed or grind size if the water drains too quickly or slowly.

  • Enjoy & Clean Up: Discard the filter and grounds. Savor your freshly brewed coffee! Rinse your dripper and carafe with warm water.
