The Recipe
This recipe makes around 300ml of coffee.
21g coffee - medium grind (finer than cafetiere but not as fine as espresso)
350ml boiled water left to cool slightly (92ºc - 94ºc if you want to be precise)
Brew Time - 3 minutes
Step 1 - Prepare
Boil twice as much water as you need for the brew. Open the filter and place in the V60 Brewer, place the brewer over jug and pour hot water over the filter. This will rinse away any paper flavour and warm up the jug. Pour away the excess water.
Step 2 - Grind
Weigh out 21g of coffee and grind, it should be on the fine side, finer than you would use for Cafetiere but not as fine as Espresso. Pour the ground coffee into the filter
Step 3 - Bloom
Place the V60 and jug on the scale and tare to zero. We recommend using a scale so you can weigh the exact amount of water. Pour around 40ml of the slightly cooled boiled water over the coffee bed and allow to Bloom for 30 seconds, make sure all of the coffee is saturated and there are no dry clumps, a good bloom will allow the coffee to disperse any gasses and ensures a nice even extraction of flavor.
Step 4 - Pour
Start the second pour, using a circular pouring motion slowly pour the water until you reach 350ml volume.
Step 5 - Brew
After 3 minutes you should be about there, with around 300 ml of brewed coffee, remove the brewer, pour the coffee and enjoy.
