Hario V60

Brew with Hario V60

Hario’s V60 brewer is probably the poster child for pour-over brewing.

Easy to learn but with a whole range of variations, it’s the method you’re most likely to see in your favourite brew bar or cafe, home or campsite.

Here’s our step-by-step guide


• Hario V60 Dripper
• Paper filters
• Kettle✎
• Server
• Grinderℹ︎
• Scales
• Timer
• Stirring tool
• Mug(s)


• 20g of coffee beans
• 330g (mL) of just-boiled water♨︎
• Extra water to rinse the paper filter

✎: We recommend using a kettle because it offers higher pouring precision. However, if you don’t have one, you can always use a standard one or literally any pouring source. Your coffee, your rules.

ℹ︎: If you don’t have a grinder, that’s OK! You can always use pre-ground coffee, though we recommend freshly ground because it does elevate the flavour of each brew.

♨︎: In our recipes, we measure water in grams because we use scales, and it’s easy to achieve precision this way. However, if you don’t have scales, the conversion is easy: 1g=1mL.

Step 1 : Rinse the paper filter

Put the V60 on top of the mug/server, fold the filter along the seam, place it and rinse it.

Rinsing with hot water saturates the filter and gets rid of the papery taste. It also heat up the bottom of your brewer which ensure temperature control of your brew. Don’t forget to discard it thoughtfully before brewing.

Step 2 : Measure your coffee

Grind 20g of coffee and place inside the brewer.

Gently shake to settle the grounds into a flat bed.

Step 3 : Bloom our coffee

Move the coffee on top of the scales, tare, and gently pour in 40-45ml of water.

It helps to pour the water in a circular pattern from the outside of the filter towards the centre. This initial wait is called the bloom and gives time for the gasses trapped in the coffee to escape.

Step 4 : Uniformity

Swirl or stir to make sure all the grounds are wet.

Wait for around 30-45 seconds to give time for your coffee grounds to soak up water.

Step 5 : Brweing

Gently pour in more water until you’ve added a total of 330g. Pour using a circular motion.

Try and start the cirle from center to outward, and then back in again. Pour each new batch of water in gently, trying not to disturb the coffee grounds too much. Aim for a total brew time of 2:30 to 3 minutes.

Step 6 : Finish

Discard the filter paper along with grounds. Take off V60 and swirl your server or mug, serve and enjoy!

Swirling helps mix and aerate the brew.

Tip : If your brew is taking more or less time than the time suggested, please make sure to alter your grind size accordingly. Less time might mean a finer grind size is required, meanwhile more time might indicated that grind size needs to be coarser.
