The slow infusion methods, known as “pour-over”, as simple as it gets!
Manual coffee makers, which allow you to make one cup of coffee at a time, such as the classic Mellita or the Hario V60, are simple and quick methods of enjoying a drip coffee while keeping control over the parameters of the infusion. With freshly roasted coffee, the right grind and specific accessories, you’ll be satisfied with every cup!
- Use brown, non-chlorine bleached conical filters.
- Use between 18g-20g of coarsely ground coffee (for a 300ml-340ml cup).
- Place the coffee maker on the cup.
First, cover the coffee with a little splash of hot water (94C) and wait for 30 seconds. When the water in your kettle is boiling, it is better to wait 2 minutes before pouring it over your coffee otherwise it will be too hot.
- Gradually add 300ml-340ml of hot water (about 50ml at a time) using rotary movements. *For this step, a kettle with a gooseneck spout allows the water to be poured more delicately and precisely over the coffee!
- Wait for the coffee to flow naturally into the cup. *The entire brew should take no longer than 4 minutes in total, if it goes too fast it means the grind is too coarse and if it’s too slow it means it is too fine.
