The V60 has similarities to other brewing methods, but differences in design make it a unique method all its own. Constructed with raised, spiraled ribs and a wide aperture that allows coffee to pass evenly through the paper filter, the V60 brews quickly and makes a nuanced, balanced cup. The key to brewing a stellar cup using the V60 method lies in the hands of the barista. Technique is critical here, and you’ll want to use a pouring kettle to be precise.
Since the size of coffee beans varies enormously, the only way to produce a consistent quality for your daily cup of coffee is by weighting coffee with a scale instead of measuring it by volume. In addition, you can measure the ratio of ground coffee and water so that you can repeat your favourite results every day. See how it works.
