Filter Coffee

How To Brew - V60 Filter

What You Need:

  • 15g of Bliss coffee, medium to medium-coarse grind
  • 250ml of boiled water
  • Hario V60 Cone
  • Filter Papers to match
  • Scales

Brewing Steps:

  1. Boil your water.
  2. Grind 15g of your favourite Bliss coffee to the right consistency.
  3. Rinse your V60 filter with hot water in the mug or carafe you're brewing into. Toss the rinse water.
  4. Add your coffee to the V60, evening out the surface.
  5. Zero out your scale with the V60 setup, then pour 45ml of water in a gentle spiral, soaking all the grounds.
  6. Pause for a 30-second bloom, giving the grounds a soft stir to ensure even soaking.
  7. Continue pouring the rest of your water (up to 250ml) in a slow, spiraling motion. Aim for even coverage.
  8. Finish brewing around 3min 30sec to 4min. 

Pro Tips:

  • Getting the pour right takes a bit of practice, especially with different kettles. Aim for a steady, controlled flow.
  • Stirring the final brew helps avoid stratification, where layers of different flavours develop because water extracts coffee at different rates. A final stir merges these layers for a balanced taste.
  • Invest in a goose neck kettle if you want to do this brewing method regularly.

Happy Brewing.
