A visual guide to the Hario V60 pourover
Place the ceramic Hario V60 Dripper on a sturdy cup or pitcher.
Fold the filter paper by the seam, then open and position it into the Hario V60.
Pour water 30 seconds off the boil into the Hario V60 dripper through the paper to rinse, preheat and ensure a secure fit..
After 20 seconds pour the water out.
Pour 30g ground coffee into the centre of the filter and give the Hario V60 Dripper a gentle shake to level the grounds.
Press your finger into the grounds to create an indentation in the coffee bed, a little concave area to assist with evenly saturating the coffee grounds once you pour the water.
The First “Bloom” (duration 30 seconds).
Measure 400ml of water just off the boil.Slowly pour around 50ml of water onto the coffee grounds circling from the centre outwards to wet all the grounds.
The coffee will release CO2 and you will see the coffee bed expanding and bubbling. This is “The Bloom”.
Allow 30 seconds for the first bloom, then pour about another 50-60ml of water to allow for a second bloom, this time with a much shorter duration (around 10 seconds).
The third and final bloom: pour in 50ml increments with a few seconds in between each pour.
Pour in a circular motion from the centre out steadily. Avoid pouring against the sides.
Stop pouring once you have reached 400ml.
