Perfect pour-over Coffee

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 5 minutes
Servings: 4



The perfect pour-over coffee ingredient:

  • 68-gram light or medium-roasted coffee beans
  • 1040 gram filtered water

Instructions for making perfect pour-over coffee:


  1.  Heat a pot of filtered water to 200 to 205F. We use an electric kettle that shows us the exact temperature. You could also use a teapot on the stove—heat it to boiling, then let the water cool down for a few minutes.
    2. Use a food scale to weigh out 34 grams of coffee, then grind it to a medium-coarse grind. We use an electric burr grinder to make a consistent effort.
    3. When the water is heated, place the filter in your Chemex. Pour in just a bit of water to wet the filter, then pour the water out into the sink. Place the ground coffee into the Chemex and shake it to level it out.
    4. Place the Chemex on the food scale and tare it, so the scale reads 0. Slowly pour in 70 grams of water in a circular motion. Then stop and wait for 1 minute. This allows the coffee to bloom.
    5. Then slowly add the remaining 520 grams of water in two batches, pouring very slowly in concentric circles, pouring right onto the coffee and not touching the coffee filter. Fill to about ½ inch from the top, wait for the water level to go down a bit, and then fill the remaining water up to 520 grams.
    6. After a few minutes, the water will filter through the coffee grounds into the pot below. Remove the filter and discard it.
