Pour Over Coffee Recipe

  1. Heat up water to 205 °F in a kettle.
  2. Measure on a scale 30 grams of coffee for every 12 oz of water
  3. Grind the coffee to a medium grind size
  4. Line the dripper with a paper filter and pre-wet the filter.
  5. Add the ground coffee into the filter, and gently tap the dripper to level the grinds.
  6. Start pouring water over the grounds with a circular motion starting from the center to the edges.
  7. Pour just enough to cover all the coffee, and give it a stir with a wooden spoon.
  8. Allow the coffee to bloom and release the trapped gas, and then pour the rest of the water, allowing it to slowly drip. Total dripping time should be around 1 minute up to 80 seconds.
