A Swiss Army Knife in the brewing world, the V60 is a great option to showcase brightness. The conical shape of the brewer helps encourage water contact with the grounds, allowing for proper extraction throughout. When dialing in coffees, this is the best method with which to begin.
To brew using a V60:
- Pour 30-50g water slowly onto the grounds, then start the timer.
- At 0:30, begin pouring, washing to the edge of the bed to saturate the outlying grounds, then bring your water stream back to the center of the slurry, pouring nickel-sized circles.
- At 1:00/215-225g, make three passes to the edge of the bed, then return to the nickel-sized circles.
- At 1:15/315-225g, make three passes to the edge of the bed, then return to the nickel-sized circles.
- At 1:30/400g, finish your pour.
The slurry should draw down between 2:15 and 2:45.
