I picked up a Hario V60 and some filters a couple of weeks ago, and I am now hooked on the simplicity of this style of brewing. I looked around a little, and I have found a few recipes that are worth checking out if you want to pursue this style of brewing. I am completely sold on both the results and the process of brewing coffee this way.
Blue Bottle, whose shops are a must visit for me when in San Francisco, has this great guide. This was actually where I started, and it’s still the one that I favor even after trying some of the others. Some this is subjective taste, and what you might like may be different.
Mistobox has this guide. It’s a little bit more involved, and comes with the video that I have embedded below. I thought it made a nice cup of coffee, but I like the more concentrated result of the Blue Bottle recipe slightly more.
I’m also still working through Prima Coffee’s exhaustive list of recipes. They vary a bunch. I’ll update this entry if I find something I like better than the Blue Bottle recipe I linked to above.
The coffee I am currently enjoying is the Ethiopia Nano Challa from Stumptown.
