Hario V60 Coffee Recipes

With the Hario V60 Coffee dripper you can make fantastic coffee at home. This is what we reach for first thing in the morning.

Pros: Fantastic flavors, great control – favorite method currently.

Cons: A gooseneck kettle really helps, need control of pour speed, a bit of a learning curve to get consistent results.

What you need: Hario V60, filters (bleached), ground coffee (make it good), hot water, timer

Key → Even extraction through stirring and a fine grind. Our current preference is a grind between espresso and drip and a brew time between 3-4:00 minutes.

 

  1. Boil water or heat kettle to 207F then rinse the filter Hario V60 coffee ready to drink
    • Use a cup or so of water – let sit while grinding coffee – then pour into your mugs to preheat them
  2. Add fresh ground coffee
  3. Start timer & add water in about twice the weight of grounds then really stir it up and make sure everything is well mixed 
    • measure with a scale for best results
    • the pour and stir should take 15 seconds total
  4. Wait 25-30 sec
  5. Pour in a slow swirl up to the final volume or 300g – should take 45 seconds
  6. Pause 25 sec and continue until total volume
    • If making less than 400g one pour
  7. After adding all the water, lift and tap brew device to settle grounds
  8. Final drip should be from 2:45 – 4:00 or so
    • We have had a few go over 5:00 that turned out well
  9. Figure out how to do it better next time!

See how everyone else is doing it –

All recipes (more or less) have you pre-rinse the filter which also heats the carafe and then can be used to heat the mugs. Seems easy enough, so we do it.

The starred recipes are a great place to start and learn more.
