Pour Over Coffee

Step-by-Step Guide to Brewing Pour Over Coffee at Home

1. Boil Water:

  • Heat filtered water to around 93°C.

2. Grind Coffee Beans:

  • Weigh out about 25 grams of coffee beans from Fonzie Abbott Coffee Roastery for a standard 12 oz cup.
  • Grind the coffee to a medium-fine consistency, similar to coarse sand.

3. Pre-wet the Filter:

  • Place the filter in the dripper and rinse it with hot water to remove any paper taste and preheat the brewing vessel.

4. Add Ground Coffee:

  • Place the ground coffee into the pre-wet filter and shake gently to level the grounds.

5. Bloom the Coffee:

  • Start your timer and pour just enough hot water (about twice the weight of the coffee, so around 50 grams) over the grounds to fully saturate them.
  • Let the coffee bloom for 30 seconds as it releases gases.

6. Begin Pouring:

  • After the bloom, start pouring the remaining water in a slow, steady spiral motion, starting from the center and moving outward.
  • Keep the water level consistent but avoid pouring directly onto the filter walls.

7. Control Pour Rate:

  • Aim for a total brew time of 3-4 minutes.
  • Adjust your pour rate to maintain a steady flow, pouring in intervals to keep the water level consistent.

8. Remove Dripper and Serve:

  • Once the coffee has finished brewing, remove the dripper and discard the used grounds.
  • Swirl the brewed coffee gently in the vessel to mix the flavors.
