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.
