Single Cup Pour-over

A fast & easy way to brew a 12-16 oz. single cup of coffee using a simple technique with easy clean-up.

Step one – Boil filtered water in your kettle and then turn off the kettle.

Step two - Weigh out 22 grams of fresh coffee

Step three - Grind your fresh roasted beans on a burr grinder using a medium-fine grind.

Step four – Position a paper filter in the dripper. Rinse the filter with hot water from your kettle. This will remove paper notes and will preheat your brewing equipment. Pour out rinse water.


Step five – Put the cup, dripper, filter and coffee on the scale, then zero out (tare) the scale (usually the button with a ‘0’ or a ‘Z’ on it.)

Step six – Pour enough water on the grounds to wet them, but not enough to start the drip (about 35-50 grams.) Wait 30 seconds. This will pre-wet and bloom the coffee allowing for a better, even extraction.

Step seven – Gently pour water in a circular motion onto the grounds. Don’t pour water directly onto the side of the filter. Pour slowly enough to keep your coffee slurry about half way up the dripper. When the scale reads 350 grams, stop pouring.
Once the coffee stream in the carafe turns into a slow drip, you’re done.

Total brew time: about 3 minutes.

Pro tips: Try to eliminate variables. Use a scale and a consistent coffee/water ratio. Adjust the grind size to find the coffee’s sweet spot with your particular brewing equipment. It will likely take you several brews to dial in the coffee and properly learn the mechanics of pouring.
