Pour Over Coffee

We roasted samples of all the single varietal green coffee beans we currently have to offer. Then we pour over brewed and tasted each one.

We highly recommend grinding your beans right before you brew your coffee to bring out the freshest flavor. Don’t be afraid to blend your beans. For example: 1/2 Ethiopian & 1/2 Columbian.

Note that the more beans you use per cup, the stronger the brew. Less beans can produce a weaker brew. The amount of water you use and the grind size also influences the flavor.

How to make Pour Over Coffee:

  • Fill the filter with grounded coffee, tapping the edges. Coarse ground is most commonly used, but you can adjust your grind to your own personal preference. I purchased a 4 blade grinder to use specifically for our single brew coffee. (Alternatively, we use a burr grinder to make our espresso.)
  • Set the filter over the designated cup or pot.
  • Pour hot water (approx 200°) across the coffee until it is wet. Wait for 30 seconds to bloom. You’ll see bubbles on top as CO2 is released from grinding fresh roasted coffee beans.
  • Add the rest of water slowly in a circular motion, keeping the water level consistent.
  • Wait for the water to brew. (3-4 mins).
  • Remove the filter from the cup or pot.
  • Dump the grounds and scrub the filter.
  • Serve & Enjoy!

Oils from coffee will naturally build up over time. If you find your coffee isn’t filtering well, you can soak the filter in a mixture of hot water, baking soda, and white vinegar to remove any build-up in the mesh.

Update: We purchased this gooseneck pour over coffee kettle and LOVE it! It really helps control our pour. The glass top with a built is thermometer is a bonus. The bottom is solid, which is great for our gas stove. Definitely a must have.
