How to use a V60 pourover

Pourover is a simple way of brewing coffee at home, and results in a clean, light cup. For best results, use a gooseneck kettle so you can control the flow of water (a teapot with a long spout will also work).


Brewing ratio

  • 15g coffee
  • 250g water

Equipment needed

  • V60 cone (Kalita brewer or similar device will also work)
  • Paper filter
  • Kettle
  • Spoon
  • Scales
  • Timer


  1. Grind the coffee to medium-fine (about the coarseness of table salt).
  2. Boil water (95-98 degrees celsius).
  3. Place filter in V60 and rinse.
  4. Put your ground coffee in the V60.
  5. Give it a bit of a shake to make a flat bed.
  6. Set up V60 on a mug or carafe and place on scales.


    1. Start the timer and pour in 60-70g water in a steady, circular motion
    2. Stir the slurry well, ensuring there are no dry pockets
    3. After 30 seconds, or just before the water finishes draining, pour again up to 130g. Slow, circular pour is recommended.
    4. After 1 minute, pour again up to 250g
    5. Your brew should finish around 2:30 mins. Enjoy!
