V60 BREWING GUIDE
V60 is a decade-old classic that’s new on the Crema scene. It’s produced by Hario in Tokyo and is designed to respond well to a number of variables. The shape of the cone, ribs that swirl from top to bottom, and larger hole at the bottom all contribute air and water flow that are easy to manipulate. The method we’ve got for you draws on James Hoffman’s, but with slightly different ratios for a final brew that we found to be just right.
The V60 is a great every day method for easy, delicious coffee time after time.
The recipe in this guide will produce an 8oz cup.
RATIO: 1:16.6 (15g coffee, 250g water)
GRIND: fine (like wet sand)
WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
- V60 Filters
- 15g of Coffee
- Water Kettle
Fold the perforated edge of the v60 filter in. This will ensure the filter sits flush with the V60.
Place your V60 on a decanter and put a filter in the V60. Pour boiling water through the filter into the decanter to rinse the filter and preheat the V60 and decanter. Discard the water.
Weigh out about 15 grams of coffee.
WEIGH & GRIND
Grind coffee similar to the the texture of wet sand.
Weigh 15 grams of ground coffee into V60 and tare scale.
Give it a gentle shake to flatten coffee bed, then use your finger to make a small indentation in the bed.
Just after boiling, remove kettle and let water settle. Start timer and quickly pour 30g water trying to fully saturate the bed.
Pick up and swirl the V60 2-3 times then set down and let bloom till 0:45.
*You can also stir it with a spoon, but it will mess with the flow rate a little and it’s not nearly as fun.
Pouring very slowly in concentric circles, add a total of 150g of water by 1:15.
Moving slightly faster now, pour to 250g water by 1:45. Once all water has been added, pick up the V60 and swirl it 2-3 times left and 2-3 times right.
At 2:15, give a shallow stir one clockwise, one counter clockwise.
Brew bed should fully drain by 3:30.
SWIRL & SERVE
Remove the filter.
Give the coffee a good swirl to incorporate all the different extractions into one balanced cup.
Serve and Enjoy!
