What you'll need

Nice to have

  • STEP 1

    Pre-wet your filter paper and discard of the water. Measure out 16g of ground coffee and place into the brewer. If you don't have a weighing scale, you'll want roughly 1 flat scoop (using the V60 measuring spoon). Level off the coffee grounds by giving it a little shake.

  • STEP 2

    Pre-wet/bloom the coffee by pouring a small amount of water (approx. 30g) over the grounds. Start your timer as soon as the water hits the coffee. Stir your coffee and let it pre-infuse for 30 seconds.

  • STEP 3

    Pour 250g/250ml of hot water over the coffee grounds (approx. 3 quarters of the way up the brewer on a 2-cup V60). Make sure the water flow is slow, steady and covers all of the coffee.

  • STEP 4

    Gently stir the water twice in a circular motion as it draws down through the coffee. Wait until all of the water has passed through into the cup below (around 3 mins).

  • STEP 5
