- Assemble Your Arsenal: Gather your pour over device (be it a classic Hario V60 or a sleek Chemex), a gooseneck kettle, freshly roasted coffee beans, a grinder, and a coffee scale. You're about to dive into the battlefield of flavor!
- Grind with Grit: Equip your grinder and dial in the perfect grind size. Remember, consistency is key! Aim for a medium-fine grind that will extract the most flavor without sacrificing smoothness.
- Heat up the H2O: Prepare your gooseneck kettle and bring the water to a precise temperature of around 200°F. We're going for hot, but not scorching. Think controlled firepower, not a full-blown caffeine explosion!
- Pre-Wet and Prep: Place your pour over device atop your favorite mug and insert a paper filter. Rinse the filter with hot water to eliminate any paper taste and preheat your vessel. This step sets the stage for the magic to come!
- Dose with Determination: Measure out your coffee grounds with your trusty coffee scale. We recommend a coffee-to-water ratio of 1:16 to unleash the full potential of your beans. This is where coffee chemistry meets pure coffee wizardry!
- The Bloom Brigade: Pour a small amount of hot water over the grounds, just enough to wet them entirely. Watch in awe as the coffee blooms and releases an aromatic explosion of flavor. It's like a battlefield of fragrant aromas!
- The Pouring Ritual: Now comes the moment of truth! With steady hands and a warrior's focus, begin pouring the hot water in a controlled, circular motion, starting from the center and working your way outwards. The water should dance gracefully over the coffee grounds, extracting their essence with precision.
- The Extraction Masterpiece: As you continue pouring, be mindful of maintaining a consistent flow rate and keeping the water level just below the brim of the pour over device. This ensures an even extraction and a cup of coffee that will make your taste buds stand at attention.
- Taste the Victory: Once the brewing is complete, remove the pour over device and behold the elixir you've created. Take a moment to appreciate the rich, aromatic masterpiece you've crafted. With a warrior's poise, take a sip and let the flavors command your senses.
- Celebrate and Clean Up: Raise your mug and toast to your brewing prowess! Bask in the glory of a well-brewed pour over coffee. And don't forget, no true Coffee Commando leaves the battlefield in disarray. Clean up your equipment with precision and ensure everything is ready for the next caffeinated conquest.
