How to Brew Coffee Using a V60

How to Brew Coffee Using a V60

Why choose a V60?

A pour-over gives you control over your coffee flavor without any of the grit introduced by a french press.


  • Weigh out and grind the coffee using a medium grind.
  • Unfold your V60 filter and place it into the V60. Place your V60 on top of either a mug or a carafe.
  • Completely wet your V60 filter with hot water and dispose of the filter water.
  • Pour the ground coffee into the pre-wet filter, making sure the coffee bed is level.
  • Add 55g of water to the coffee bed. Gently agitate the coffee bed with the handle of a spoon. Let the water saturate the grounds for 45 seconds.
  • Add the remainder of the water to the coffee bed. Do so within 45 seconds.
  • Once all of the water is added, give the V60 a few spins to agitate the grounds within the coffee bed.
  • This entire process should take around 3.5 minutes, a 3 minute brew time and a 30 second draw down time.
  • Serve and enjoy!
