Brewing Tips: Pour-Over Coffee
There are dozens of ways to brew coffee, but one of our absolute favorites is the pour-over. It takes time, patience, and practice to perfect, but once you get the hang of it nothing can compare.
Step 1: Use freshly roasted coffee. Mitchell Canyon Coffee is roasted and shipped weekly to ensure you are getting the freshest coffee possible.
Step 2: Always grind your coffee fresh. Grounds should be roughly the size of sand.
Step 3: Water temperature should be 195-205 degrees F. (or 30 seconds off the boil).
Step 4: Rinse filter with hot water. This will wash out the taste of paper from the filter as well as pre-heating your mug or receptacle.
Step 5: Reference the ratio chart (below) to make sure your coffee is well-balanced.
Step 6: Your first pour should only be enough to cover the grounds. Allow 30 seconds to let the coffee bloom (the better the bloom, the fresher the coffee).
Step 7: Pour slowly. Try to keep the water level low without letting the grounds dry up. From start to finish, the dripping should last about 3-4 minutes.
Step 8: Discard filter, and enjoy!
