Prep and Preheat
Weigh 25g of coffee and grind on a medium fine setting to a coarseness of sea salt. Then, set up the Hario V60, filter, and vessel on the scale and heat 400g of water in the kettle to 208 degrees Fahrenheit.
Gently pour hot water into the center of the empty filter. Continue pouring in a spiral outwards to rinse the entire filter. Then, empty the water from the vessel, place back onto the scale, and tare to zero.
Add the ground coffee to the V60, ensuring that you add 25g of coffee, then tare the scale to zero. Make a small divot in the center of the grounds.
Start the timer and add 50g of water to the bed of coffee quickly, in about 5 seconds. Let the coffee bloom for 45 seconds.
When the timer reads :45, with a gentle flow start pouring in the center and spiral out in concentric circles taking care not to pour down the filter itself. Continue pouring gently in concentric circles spiraling back in towards the center until the scale reads 400g. This should take about 1 minute, with the timer reading 1:45 when all of the water has been added.
Stare in amazement at your freshly brewed coffee. Drawdown time can vary based on coffee variety and roast degree, but should take between 1:30-2:00, putting your total brew time between 3:15-4:00.
