Hario V60 Brew Guide

Though it seems intimidating, it’s a relatively easy brewing method similar to a Chemex.


The Hario V60 is, perhaps, one of the most well-known specialty brew methods out there. It gets its name from the 60 degree angle of its cone. It’s elegantly designed and creates a nuanced, complex cup of coffee which makes it a favorite at specialty coffee shops all across the world. Though it seems intimidating, it’s a relatively easy brewing method similar to a Chemex.



Step 1

Heat your water to 205 degrees. If you're using a stovetop kettle, bring the water to a boil and take it off the heat for 15-20 seconds.


Step 2

Place your Hario V60 dripper onto your mug.


Step 3

Unfold the Hario Paper Filter and place it into the drip brewer.


Step 4

Rinse the filter to seat the filter into the brewer and rinse any paper fibers off the filter.


Step 5

Discard the rinse water.


Step 6

Carefully measure, then grind your beans on a medium setting. You want the grind to be similar to what you’d use for drip coffee.


Step 7

Pour the ground beans into the carafe and tap to even out the bed.


Step 8

Start your first pour—about 50 grams—and stir to make sure all the grounds are wet. Let bloom for 15 seconds.


Step 9

Make 5 pours over the next 3 minutes. Each pour should be 50g of water. Pour in a slow, circular motion and avoid the sides of the filters.


Step 10

Once you’ve reached 300g, let the rest of the coffee drain.
