Colture V60/Slow-Drip Brew Guide

Follow these three steps to get the best
cup of coffee from your slow dripper.

What you'll need:
  • A Hario V60 coffee dripper
  • Filter papers
  • Kettle
  • Scales
  • Timer
  • Spoon
  • 22g of medium-ground coffee

Step 1: Wet filter and preheat

Pop a filter paper into your V60 and place it on top of your chosen cup. Boil your kettle and pour hot water onto the empty filter paper to rinse any unwanted flavours before brewing. Discard the excess water, then place your cup and V60 onto your scales.

Step 2: Weigh and bloom

Carefully sprinkle 22g of medium grounds – about the texture of granulated white sugar – into the paper, then give it a slight tap with your hand to level the coffee. Hit the zero button on your scales and you’re ready to start brewing.

Ensure your water has just boiled, then start your timer as you pour 66g of water, ensuring you cover all the grounds. Give the V60 a stir and get all the grounds mixed together with the water. Leave this to bloom for 45 seconds.

Step 3: Pour, draw-down and serve

In a circular clockwise motion, pour water until the scale reaches 360g, then stir in a clockwise motion three times immediately after pouring. Let the overall liquid level drop by a half, then swirl gently twice. If you swirl too aggressively, the smallest grinds, known as the fines, could clog your filter paper.

After it’s finished dripping, enjoy immediately! If you find your V60 brew tastes bitter, try grinding your beans more coarsely. If you find your brew is tasting sour, grind finer.
