Hario V60 V1
1 cup (12g of beans)
Boil water to an ideal brewing temperature of 91-93C. Once boiled, add your filter to the Hario V60 and rinse with hot water to warm up the V60 and remove the paper flavour.
Weigh and grind your coffee to a consistency similar to table salt. We recommend using 12g of coffee beans.
Place the Hario V60 on top of a cup and add the ground coffee to the filter keeping the grounds at the centre of the cone.
Place the Hario V60 with cup onto a scale and pour 50 grams of hot water gently onto the coffee grounds to immerse the coffee. When pouring, use a spiral movement from the centre to cover the coffee without disturbing the coffee bed.
Note: For improved technique a goose neck kettle helps to control water flow and spiral pouring.
Set timer for 30 seconds to allow the coffee to bloom (degassing process). After 30 seconds add an additional 75 grams of water and set timer for 1 minute.
At 1 minute, add an additional 75 grams of water to total water weight to 200 grams and wait a further 1.30 mins.At 1.30 minutes, remove the Hario V60 and enjoy a cup of coffee.
