Brew Guide: Pour-Over

Over the past few centuries, many different inventors and coffee companies have developed their own unique method to Pour-Over coffee. By changing the size of the hole and the pattern of the interior ridges, companies have developed different pour-over models that all produce their own unique cup of coffee. For this brew, we used a German “Cilio” Pour-Over with a size #4 filter.

Pour-Over is extremely easy, and should only take about 10 minutes.

GROUNDS

To start out, measure out your Buzzbox Coffee and set your grinder to a medium-fine grind. Also, that’s #5 or autodrip on an industrial grinder

 

Kettle

WATER

Bring your water to a boil and then remove from heat. Never pour boiling water straight onto coffee grounds – it will scorch them and give your coffee a burnt flavor. Allow the water to cool for 30 seconds (the temperature should be between 195-205 degrees) before you proceed to the next step.

FILTER

Place your filter inside your pour-over, set it on top of your mug, and use hot water to give it a quick rinse. This gets rid of any papery taste the filter might add to the coffee, and warms your mug up, too. Dump out the excess water.

ADDING GROUNDS

Drop the grounds into the filter and give it a small shake so they are distributed evenly.

POURING

Grab your kettle and begin pouring the water in a slow, circular motion outward from the center. Only pour until the grounds are slightly covered with water, then stop.

BLOOM

Let the grounds bloom for 45 seconds, then use a small wooden paddle or chopstick to give the grounds a quick stir. By stirring the grounds you are ensuring they are evenly covered with water, which helps create an even extraction.

2ND POURING

Continue to pour water in the same circular motion over your coffee until you’ve used all of your water. Remove pour-over once the drip has slowed to a near stop.
