How to make coffee with a Hario V60. This brew recipe makes one mug of coffee, just scale up the ratios as needed.
You will need:
Some Bad Hand Coffee (our current fave is Peru Pedro Garcia Diaz) + water + V60 + filter + scales (optional, but handy) + gooseneck kettle (again, optional but will help you control your pour) + a timer (if you have one).
- Place your filter in your V60 and wet (preferably with hot water to preheat at the same time). Do this over the sink, or preheat your mug/jug at the same time.
- Place 2 tablespoons (16g) of medium-coarsely ground coffee in your V60.
- Put your V60 on top of your empty mug/jug.
- Pour a small amount of hot water (off the boil) over the coffee grounds until they are all wet. We aim for about 3 times the amount of water as coffee (so about 48ml of water to your 16g of coffee).
- Leave for at least 30 seconds, or until the bubbles stop appearing. This is called the ‘bloom’.
- Add another dose of water and gently swirl to help make sure the grounds don’t settle and stagnate and the coffee can pass through.
- Add water in doses, allowing some to drain through before adding more. You want a total of 280ml of water, aiming for a total brew time of 3 to 4 minutes.
- Swirl and enjoy!
