What is a Hario V60?
The Hario V60 is a manual coffee dripper that allows you to brew delicious coffee without using an automatic machine. This brewing method gives you complete control over every aspect of the process, from choosing your favorite beans to controlling the water temperature. The Hario V60 gets its name from the process – the V in V60 represents the “V” shape of the cone filter used, and 60 represents the 60-degree angle of the dripper’s sides.
Why Use a Hario V60?
There are many reasons to use a Hario V60, but the two most important are quality and control. The Hario V60 allows you to make high-quality coffee that is rich in flavor and aroma. This brewing method also gives you complete control over the brewing process, so you can customize your coffee to suit your taste.
What You’ll Need:
• Hario V60 dripper #02
• Hario V60 filter papers
• 22g of your favorite Nobletree Coffee beans (medium-fine grind)
• 350g of water just off the boil (~200-205F | 1.5 cups or 12 fl oz)
• A Scale
• Gooseneck kettle
Now that we’ve gone over what you’ll need, let’s get started!
Step One: Choose Your Beans
The first step in brewing delicious coffee with a Hario V60 is to choose the right beans. Choosing a quality, freshly roasted coffee is essential when selecting your beans. Here at Nobletree, we roast our coffee daily in small batches by hand, so we can manually control all stages of the roasting process to ensure the highest quality.
Step Two: Grind Your Beans
Once you’ve selected your favorite Nobletree beans, it’s time to grind them. Grind size is important for brewing with a Hario V60. You’ll want to use a medium-fine grind, similar to table salt’s consistency. If your grind is too fine, your coffee will be over-extracted and taste bitter. If your grind is too coarse, your coffee will be under-extracted and taste watery.
Step Three: Boil Your Water
Now that you’ve ground your beans, it’s time to boil your water. The water should be boiled to between 200-205 degrees Fahrenheit. You’ll want to use filtered water for the best results.
Step Four: Place the Filter in the Hario V60
Once your water is boiling, it’s time to place the filter in the Hario V60. First, rinse the filter with hot water to remove any paper taste. Fold over the seams on the #02 cone filter and place it into the dripper. Then, add your ground coffee to the filter and gently shake to level the grounds.
Step Five: Pour Your Water
Now it’s time to start brewing! Start a timer, and slowly pour about 40-50g of water over the coffee grounds. Within 10 seconds, stir the coffee vigorously with a stirrer to ensure even saturation. After about 30 seconds, pour approximately 100g of water over the coffee bed slowly, beginning in the center and spiraling outwards. If done correctly, there should be no bubbles in the slurry.
Step Six: Remove the Filter
After three minutes, remove the filter and dispose of the grounds. Your cup of Nobltree coffee is now ready to enjoy! Serve it black or add milk and sugar to taste.
Brewing delicious coffee with a Hario V60 is easy when you follow these simple steps. You can adjust the grind size or coffee throw weight to suit your personal taste. With a bit of practice, you’ll be able to make the perfect cup of coffee every time!
