  • Coffee dose: 20g
  • Water Weight: 340g
  • Grind Size: Medium-Fine
  • Water Temp: 210F

Begin prepping your filter by inserting it into the brewer and rinsing it to remove any paper flavor that may infiltrate your coffee. Pour in your coffee grounds and shake to level them.

Step 1

Pour your pre-infusion of 50g of water. Make sure to pour carefully in concentric circles to ensure all the grounds are fully saturated. Give the brewer a swirl or stir with a small spoon to keep the grounds agitated.

Step 2

At 30 seconds, add 145 grams of water bringing your total volume to 195 grams. Make sure you're still pouring in concentric circles. Give the V60 a swirl to keep the grounds agitated and improve distribution of water.

Step 3

When the water has drawn down to just above the coffee bed, add your last 145 grams of water, bringing your total to 340 grams. Give it a swirl and let it drain completely. Your brew should finish between 3:30-4:00.
