Step 1: Gather Supplies.
Coffee beans (freshly roasted in the past few weeks)
A grinder (burr preferred)
Water and a water kettle
Pour over cone
Any cream you like (I prefer whole milk) - or drink it black!
Step 2: Fold Filter Into Cone
Step 3: Start Heating Your Water
Make sure to heat up enough to fill your mug. In this instance I am using a 400 to 500 mL mason jar. We will regulate the amount of water when we are pouring so don't worry about that just yet
Step 4: Grind Coffee!
In my case, I am familiar with the amount of beans to make coffee the way I like, so feel free to alter the amount to your tastes. Practice makes perfect. For my coffee I use about 1 1/2 handfuls of beans.
Check with your grinder manufacture for the proper settings for pour over coffee and make sure that it is adjusted properly I recommend the Hario Skerton because it is an excellent grinder.
When you're finished grinding, do not put the grounds in the filter quite yet.
Step 5: Clear Filter and Warm Your Mug
Place your cone on top of the mug without any coffee and then pour some hot water to clear some paper taste out of the filter and preheat the mug.
When all the water has drained through the filter, dump the mug out after swirling it around a bit.
Step 6: Pour Grounds Into Filter
Step 7: Brew!
Many coffee aficionados will recommend a gooseneck kettle for the step. However with a little bit of patients any kind of water kettle will work.
A standard 8 ounce coffee mug is about 1 to 1 1/2 times the volume of the cone. It should take the coffee about two minutes to fully percolate through and then your brew is ready to drink!
Step 8: Enjoy Your Coffee
Although I enjoy my coffee black sometimes, I grew up always drinking milky coffee. Add whatever you would like into your coffee before you drink it as long as it is not sugar.
Coffee is a very healthy drink and only has a few calories per cup so enjoy it daily!
