The v60 is a versatile way of brewing that produces a clean, nuanced, and balanced single cup.
- Water kettle (preferably gooseneck)
- v60 filter
- gram scale
- coffee grinder
- brewing carafe or mug
- fresh coffee beans
Coffee | Water Ratio (1:16)
25 grams coffee = 400 grams hot water (makes one 12 oz. cup)
- Weigh out coffee using a gram scale and grind medium-fine (something that resembles sea salt)
- Bring fresh, filtered water to a boil (between 195F-205F).
- Place filter into v60 brewer and set over your desired brewing vessel.
- Rinse filter with hot water, then discard.
- Add ground coffee into the filter. Tap sides to level the coffee bed.
- Place v60 over your scale and tare to 0.
Bloom (First Pour)
- Start your timer, then pour 65 grams of water, starting at the center of the bed, circling outwards, then back to the center for about 30-45 seconds. Make sure not to pour on the sides of the filter. It may bypass the coffee completely, resulting in a diluted brew.
- At 30-45 seconds, pour to 200 grams, starting at the center of the bed, circling outwards, then back inwards.
- At 1:00-1:15, pour to 300 grams, using the same technique.
- At 1:30-1:45, pour to 400 grams, using the same technique.
Brew should finish dripping between 2:15-3:00.
When it’s finished dripping, it’s ready to drink. Enjoy your results!
Finish too fast? Try a finer grind. Too slow? Try a coarser grind.
