Brew time

2:30-3 minutes

Ingredients

20 grams fresh, whole bean coffee


11 liquid ounces fresh, filtered water + additional for rinsing your paper filter


What you'll need

Hario V60-02 Dripper


V60-02 Filters


Burr Grinder


Pouring Kettle


Digital Gram Scale


Timer

step 1
Prep

Unfold the filter and insert into the dripper. Place your V60 cone atop a mug and rinse the filter with hot water. Leaving the V60 and filter in place, discard the water in your mug.

step 2
Grind

Weigh out 40 grams (about 5 level tablespoons) of whole beans. Grind the beans to a medium-coarse consistency.

step 3
Settle

Pour the ground coffee into the filter, giving a gentle shake to settle the grounds. Place the Chemex pot on your scale and tare to ‘0 grams.’

step 4
Pour

Allow your water to reach a boil, and then wait 45-60 seconds. Start your timer and pour 60 grams of brewing water into the center of the bed of grounds. Let stand for 45 seconds, allowing the coffee to absorb the water.

step 5
Brew

Begin pouring a steady, even stream of hot water over the grounds in a circular motion. Continue slowly pouring until your scale displays ‘630 grams.’ Avoid pouring water directly onto the filter. When all water has dripped through the filter, the volume of coffee should be level with the raised glass button on the side of the Chemex

step 6
Enjoy!

When all the water has dripped through the filter (ideally between 2-2:30 minutes), remove and discard the filter and brewed grounds. Drink up!
