How to make coffee with a Hario V60


The Hario V60 is a ceramic coffee dripper and a thing of beauty. It's a great way to enjoy the ritual of brewing and gives you heaps of scope to experiment with your own techniques and recipes. The size 02 produces around 1-2 cups of coffee.

Hario V60: 5 tips for taking it to the next level

  • Weigh your coffee and water for more consistent results every time. Your V60 comes with a handy scoop that doses about 16g.

  • Use medium-coarsely ground coffee about the size of kosher salt – fresh is best!

  • Fold the seems of your filter paper to help it sit better in the V60.

  • Play around different bloom times and different amounts of water with each pour (for example: a 40ml bloom for one minute and three doses of 80ml over another three minutes) changing one thing each time to experiment with how you can play with extraction.

  • Use filtered water (from a Brita jug or similar is fine) to help bring more flavour out.
