#2. POUR OVER
Effort Index: 6
The Gear: A Bee House dripper ($22), filters ($5), a scale ($30), and a Hario pouring kettle ($60), all available at Thinking Cup.
The Method: Place and rinse filter. Grind 22 g beans to the consistency of sand. Pour 60 g hot water lightly over the coffee. Wait 20 seconds to allow the coffee to “bloom” (release carbon dioxide). For second pour, fill to 240 g and wait for 10 seconds. For final pour, fill to 380 g. This yields a 10 oz. cup.
Barista Notes: “A cleaner cup that will amplify sweetness.”
