Coffee Brew Guide: Hario V60

Hario, a Japanese company which translates to "King of Glass", was founded in 1921. Hario originally specialised in producing heatproof glassware for laboratory and industrial use. In the 1940s, Hario expanded its product range to include household items, and in the 1950s, Hario introduced a coffee siphon which showcased their expertise in glass craftsmanship. 

In 2004 the Hario V60 was born to provide coffee enthusiasts with a simple yet effective method of manually brewing coffee. "V60" comes from the design of the dripper which has a 60-degree angle and a V-shaped cone. This cone-shaped design, along with the spiral ribs on the interior, allows for a consistent and even extraction of coffee grounds.

The Hario V60 quickly became a favourite among coffee enthusiasts that appreciate the flavour profiles extracted from the pour-over coffee brewing technique. Pour-over brewing involves pouring hot water evenly over coffee grounds, allowing for precise control over factors like water temperature, pour rate, and extraction time. 

Experience the nuanced flavors of specialty coffee from a V60 pour over, with our Hario V60 brewing guide below.

Hario V60 Recipe:

 

Hario V60
Brew Ratio 1:10
Coffee Beans
Medium-Fine Grind
Kettle
96°C Water

Method:
  1. Place the paper filter into your Hario V60 Dripper.
  2. Boil your kettle and rinse the paper filter. Remove water from server.
  3. Add coffee grounds into the filter.
  4. Pour 50ml - 100ml water in a circular motion to saturate the coffee grounds and wait for about 30 seconds for the coffee to bloom*.
  5. Slowly add the remaining water over the coffee grounds in a circular motion to complete your brew ratio.
  6. Once your brew is finished, remove the filter and enjoy!
Brew Ratios:
  • Hario 01: 15g coffee / 240g Water
  • Hario 02: 30g / 480g
Notes:

*Bloom: Where the coffee grounds inflate and bubbles appear. This occurs as the gas releases from the coffee (from roasting) and enables the remaining water to yield the full potential of the coffee whereby extracting the aromatics & oils whilst brewing.

You can adjust the brew ratio to suit your preferred strength and flavour. I.e reduce the ratio to make a stronger brew.
