If you are used to making a pot of coffee even when you want just a cup, then this great little brewer may well be your saviour. Arguably the most popular manual brew method over the past decade, the Hario V60-02 is a newer twist on the classic Melitta cones. There are as many opinions on brew method as there are baristas but, once you have found your favourite, this is one of cheapest and most effective ways to make great coffee at home. This method, paired with the appropriate filters (like the CoffeeSock), is ideal for making single cups of coffee directly into the mug - you can make up to 16oz in one brew - and ensures that you only make the coffee that you need. This plastic-free Hario V60 is simple to use, easy to clean, and because it's ceramic, it's better at retaining heat (and much prettier) than plastic!
How to: Put filter paper (or CoffeeSock) into your V60, and place it on top of your mug or server. Rinse the paper with hot water, then discard the water. Grind 15 g (for 1 cup) or 30 g (for 2 cups) of coffee and place it in the filter. Gently tap the V60 to settle the grounds into a flat bed. You'll need a slightly more coarse grind when brewing with 30 g for 2 cups. Gently pour in 50 g (for 1 cup) 50 g (for 2 cups) of water, just off the boil. Stir to make sure all the grounds are wet, and wait 30 seconds. Gently pour in more water until you’ve added a total of 250 ml. Pour using a circular motion. Gently stir again once the pour is complete. Swirl your server or mug, then enjoy!
