How To Brew Coffee With Hario V60

How To Brew Coffee With Hario V60

Pour-over coffee is one of our favorite way of brewing coffee as it brings out incredible depths of flavors from the coffee beans through its delicate brewing process, making it the perfect start to understanding the nuances of specialty coffee.
Hario V60 is one of the most popular pour-over brewers today, but it is also one of the least forgiving brewers due to its design. Fred not, the brewing recipe that we have for you today is simple to replicate for home brewers and brings consistent results.

What You'll Need


  • Pouring Kettle
    • Preferably gooseneck kettle as it's easier to control the flow rate of the water, which is one of the key variables of brewing coffee
    • Electric kettles are for convenience, you can certainly boil a kettle of water, before pouring it into a gooseneck kettle.
  • Grinder
    • We highly recommend getting your hands on the Timemore C2 hand grinder, it is the most value-for-money grinder that we have tested in the market. If you are looking to upgrade it, you can consider replacing its burr with the Timemore E&B burr which further reduces the time taken to grind, especially for espresso grind settings, and improve the consistency
  • Scale
    • We recommend getting a scale of 0.1 grams precision, especially for V60 brews. The timer function is a nice-to-have on the scale, it brings a great deal of convenience, however, placing a separate time or even your phone alongside your scale works perfectly fine.
  • Fresh Coffee Beans
    • Whenever possible, get only whole beans and grind them just before the brew. The taste and storage of the beans just work so much better with whole beans.
  • Hario V60
    • We are using size 01 in this recipe, you will have to scale your recipe up if you are using a size 02. Due to the size of the cone, variables will be different hence this recipe cannot be directly replicated on a size 02 V60.
  • Bleached Filter Paper
  • A teaspoon or a small spoon of any sorts


  • Carafe
    • You can use any serving cups
  • Waste Bowl
    • To reduce the mess

Editor's Notes

Pour-over methods are great for beginners to experiment with how different variables such as water temperature, and grind settings affect the end results. The process of mastering a tasty cup of coffee is painful but the results are so much more satisfying.

It is also an affordable way to get started on your coffee journey, it is not necessary to get a high-end electric grinder, scale, and kettle, I would get the upgrades of my equipment progressively, based on the priority of improvements that I see from my brew results.

That's all we have to share today, let us know in the comments below if you have any questions about the recipe and how it works out for you!
