Japanese Hario makes a living from producing glassware. Since their Hario V60 saw the light of day, it has become an extremely popular filter brewer among coffee enthusiasts. Many believe it has revolutionized filter coffee, which has historically had a somewhat dull reputation. What makes the Hario V60 popular is the shape of the funnel, which brings out the absolute best in the coffee beans. There are many different techniques and recipes for a V60, but here follows ØNSK’s Hario V60 brewing guide.
Hario V60 is the coffee maker for the dedicated coffee enthusiast who wants to nerd to get all the flavor nuances out of the coffee. The V60 gives full control over the process and the opportunity to play with the taste by changing the variables.

WEIGH AND GRIND THE COFFEE
Weigh 21 grams of coffee beans and grind the coffee medium / fine. The coffee should be a little finer than for filter coffee.
PREPARE THE JUG AND RINSE THE FILTER
Place the filter in the funnel. When the water boils, moisten the filter with the boiling water to remove the paper taste, and let the hot water warm the jug. This ensures a good temperature of the coffee.
Then pour the water from the jug and add the freshly ground coffee to the wet filter.
LET THE COFFEE BLOOM
Cover the coffee with 40 grams of water.
Now the coffee should “bloom” for 20-30 seconds. An important part of the process, as this is where the taste grows and develops.
Pro tip: stir with a spoon if necessary to ensure that all the coffee comes into contact with the water.
Gradually pour another 320 grams of water over the coffee so that you have added a total of 360 grams of water.
Try to hit the dark areas of the coffee and avoid hitting the filter.
Stir lightly in the filter and let the water run through.
Once the water has run through, the coffee is ready.
Remove the filter and serve the coffee. Enjoy!
