There's nothing quite like a fresh cup of coffee in the morning. Our favorite brewing method at Round Mountain is the classic, V60 pour over. Follow our fool-proof steps for the perfect morning brew!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 27g of your favorite ground coffee beans (we recommend our Ethiopia roast)
- Hario V60 filter & filter papers
- Your favorite mug
Fill your Kettle with 2 cups of filtered water and bring to a boil. While your water heats up, grind 27g of your favorite beans. Set aside.
Pro tip: Your coffee grinds should have a similar consistency as kosher sea salt.
Fold your filter paper along the crease and set it in the V60 coffee dripper.
Pro tip: pre-soak the paper filter to avoid any papery taste in your coffee!
Place your fresh ground coffee in the filter & saturate them with 50-80g of water. This process is commonly referred to as the “bloom” and takes approximately 30 seconds.
Pro tip: make sure you have an even bed, this will make it easier for all of the grounds to be evenly saturated and yield and smoother cup of coffee.
There will be a total of 4 pours in 80g increments. Your first pour will yield 160g. The second will yield 240 g. The third will yield 320g. The fourth will yield 400g.
Pro tip: Pour your water in concentric circles, going from the center of the filter to the outside.
Once all of the water has filtered through your grounds, enjoy!
