Hario V60

The Hario V60 porcelain filter is a great, particularly nuanced and versatile brewing gear for those who want to perfect their specialty coffee enjoyment and are looking for complete control over the extraction process while brewing their coffee. The key here is to pour the water calmly and slowly. The result is a very clean cup that emphasizes the fruity notes of a coffee.

If you would like to try this brewing method but do not yet have a Hario V60, you can buy it in our shop on Senefelder Straße. The price is around 30 euros.

You can find coffee in many delicious varieties right here in the online shop. We recommend buying your specialty coffee whole and only grind it fresh just before brewing. However, if you don’t have a coffee grinder, you can order your specialty coffee with the right grind for this brewing method.

Kaffeeröster Berlin - Brew Guide - Hario V60 Filter

This is what you will need

  • Hario V60  Dripper (size 02)
  • Hario V60 filter paper (size 02)
  • Coffee grinder
  • 21g Coffee (filter roast)
  • 360 ml hot water (ca. 94 °C) as well as some hot water to rinse the filter
  • Scales
  • Timer
  • Cups (optional: Coffee carafe)

The Brewing Process

  1. Start by folding the filter into a cone shape.
  2. Put the filter into the Hario Dripper and rinse it with hot water, to remove any papery taste and pre-heat the cup.
  3. Grind 21 grams of coffee (filter roast) as fine as rough salt. Note: The degree of grinding for the V60 Filter is noticeably finer than with classic Melitta filters, but should be adjusted to the type of coffee according to your taste.
  4. Put the ground coffee into the Dripper.
  5. Set the Dripper with the filter and the coffee onto a scale and reset it to Zero.
  6. Start your timer and flush the coffee with about 40g of hot water (ca. 94 °C). Rule: Twice as much water as coffee. Take care that the coffee is thoroughly rinsed with water.
  7. Now let your coffee “bloom” for about 35 seconds. While „blooming“ the roast coffee loses additional CO2 which would otherwise alter the coffee taste. The coffee bed should gush lightly. This is an important step towards your perfect coffee!
  8. Now add the rest of the water with slow, circular movements. Ideally, add more hot water every 10 – 15 seconds. That way, you achieve a particularly smooth extraction. Take care to not let your coffee run dry.
  9. Have an eye on the scale. At the end of the brewing process it should display 360 g.

The entire process takes about 3 minutes and gives you ca 300ml of finest coffee!

What to do next

After use, the Hario V60 porcellain filter is very easy to clean. Simply take out the filter and the coffee (which will be hot!) and rinse the dripper with hot water. Of course you can also put it into the dish washer – but then you have to wait longer for your next cup.
