The V60 is a pour over method used for single cup coffees. It provides a clean and very well-balanced cup of coffee.

What you will need:

Hario V60 02
V60 02 Filters
Gooseneck Kettle
Burr Grinder
Gram Scale


22 Grams of Wells Coffee
400+ grams of Filtered water


Phase 1 – Bring your water (400 grams) to boil and grind your 22 grams of beans to a medium grind size. Place your V60 on a mug or decanter on top of your scale, and place filter inside.

Phase 2 - Once your water comes to a boil let it sit for 45 seconds. Next, rinse your paper filter with 70 grams of water (or more, as long as you leave 330g for the coffee) to get rid of the paper taste and to heat all devices. Dump out the remaining water and add your freshly ground coffee to the V60, making sure to level out the bed of grounds.

Phase 3 – You’re ready to brew! Tare your scale so that it reads “0”. Next pour your water slowly into the center of the V60 until your scale reads 40g, making sure to cover all of the coffee without directly hitting the sides of the paper filter. Now let your coffee sit for 40 seconds as it goes through its de-gassing process known as “the bloom”.

Phase 4 – Once the 40 seconds are up, begin your steady pour in a counter-clockwise motion. Continue your pour, keeping the V60 2/3 full until you hit 330 grams on your scale. Once you reach 330 grams, stop the pour and wait for the last of the water to leave the V60. Brew time should be between 2 and 2 ½ minutes.

Phase 5 – Remove V60 from your mug or decanter, gather some friends, and drink deeply.
