What you'll need
- Hario V60 brewer
- Gooseneck kettle
- Filtered water
- Nuddy Coffee
Boil a kettle of filtered water.
The ideal water temperature is between 92 and 94 degrees celsius. If you have a regular kettle, bring it to boil and then leave it to sit for a few minutes whilst grinding your coffee.
Rinse the paper filter.
Place a paper filter into the V60 brewer and rinse it with hot water. Rinsing the filter will remove the “papery” taste as well as preheating the brewer and the server.
Place the brewer and the server on a scale and tare to zero.
Make sure to discard the water that was used during the rinsing process.
Add 15g of ground coffee on the V60 brewer.
The grind size should be a similar size to course table salt. Freshly ground coffee always tastes the best!
Pour 50g of hot water.
Pour gently over all of the coffee ground. Leave it for 15-30 seconds to allow it to bloom.
Give it a gentle stir so all the coffee grind is nice and wet.
Pour a further 200g of hot water using a circular motion.
For the best results, separate the pour in 3-4 times to keep the water level above the coffee bed.
Let it drip until it’s finished.
Make sure the water is drained from the coffee bed completely. This should take 2 to 3 minutes.
Tip: If it’s taking longer than expected, coarsen the grind next time. If it’s running short, go finer.
