Similar to your typical drip-coffee, a pour-over is a coffee brewing method in which you saturate coffee with hot water as it passes through a filter. The difference between your normal drip machine and a pour-over include several variables, like brew time, speed, and water flow (which affect the characteristics of the end product), including quality, texture, and taste.
All of these pieces can be found online, and even in bundled packages for often affordable prices.
Before we start, remember the ratio of coffee to water is most important in determining how your cup is going to end up tasting. If you have less water, you will find your cup to be on the heavier side. With more, you may have a lighter cup. There are baseline measurements to use, but these do not always have to be followed. 24-25 grams of coffee to 325 grams of water is a good place to start. You can test from here if needed.
Once you have all the materials needed, you’re ready to make your first pour over!
After this, you should have a mostly full cup of delicious coffee! Remember: Play with the ratio of water to coffee and find what works best for you! You can also play with the amount of time you choose to extract and when to add certain amounts of water during the process.
Now you know how to craft a perfect pour-over - Enjoy!
