Check out the latest video in our Brew Guide Series.

Starring Rumble's own Stan Bicknell, they show you the step-by-step process of how to get the best out of your coffee.

Ingredients/Gear

  • V60
  • Carafe
  • Scales and timer
  • Paper filter
  • Freshly ground coffee
  • Hot water
  • Kettle (a pour over kettle lets you be precise with your pouring)
  • Spoon
  • Timer
  • Vessel

 

Instructions

  • Setup:Grab your paper filter and place it in the V60.
  • Rinse the filter with hot water to get rid of the papery taste and warm your carafe.
  • Empty the water and place the carafe and V60 on the scales

 

  • Grind:Add fresh,medium to coarse ground (think white sugar) coffee to the V60. (Use 6g of coffee per 100ml of water so 12g to 200ml water for a single and 24g to 400ml for a 2 cup V60)
  • Jiggle the coffee around to level it out and remove any air pockets.
  • Tare the scales.
  • Brew: Add 95℃ water (a good way to do this is to let a freshly boiled kettle sit for 45 secs and then pour).
  • Start your timer and create a bloom with 75g of water, pouring in a circular fashion
  • Use your spoon to gently stir the brew to insure all the coffee is saturated.
  • After 45 seconds, add the rest of your water. Pour at a slow to medium pace in a circular motion.
  • Once all the water is in, use your spoon to do another gentle stir around the edges, this ensures all the coffee is brewing.
  • After another 45 seconds (about halfway through the brew), give the V60 a gentle, circular wiggle. This pulls any coffee off the sides of the filter and levels out the base of coffee sitting at the bottom of the brew.
  • Aim for a 2:30 to 3 minute total brew time.
  • Pour: Once you hear the brewing stop, pickup the stovetop, pour into your vessel and enjoy. Stovetop can be quite strong so add more water if needed.
