How do I make a pour-over?

This is a starting point. Adjust to your taste.

For 8 ounces (225 g) of brewed coffee, use 0.4 ounces (11 g) of medium-fine ground coffee (2 Tbsp coffee).

  1. Boil water. Remove from heat.
  2. Rinse filter. Put paper filter in the dripper cone over your cup.  Pour some boiled water on filter to wet to remove paper taste.  Throw out the filter-rinse water in the cup.
  3. Grind coffee. Put in dripper.
  4. Bloom:  Pour a little water to moisten the coffee.  You’ll see it swell, rise, & bubble (CO2 is a by-product of roasting).  Give it 30 seconds to finish.
  5. Pour the rest of the water over the grounds slowly, from center, spiraling outward.
  6. Savor and enjoy!
