Pour over

poor-over

What you will need

  • Coffee dripper
  • Coffee filters
  • Kettle
  • Measuring cup or gram scale

How to prepare

  • Bring 1½ cups (350 g) of water to a boil.
  • Place the dripper on a carafe or cup (whichever you would like to brew into) then place a filter in the dripper.
  • Insert TRIBE coffee beans into filter. Gently shake the dripper to level out the surface of the grounds.
  • First pour, or the “bloom”: Pour about ¼ cup of hot water over the coffee, starting at the outer rim and moving inward in a steady spiral toward the center of the grounds. Make sure all of the grounds are saturated during your first pour.
  • Pause about 30 seconds so the coffee grounds can “bloom.”
  • Pour remaining hot water over the coffee in roughly 2 to 3 equal parts, pausing between each pour to allow the coffee to drip and the waterline to drop about a thumb’s width (be careful not to dry out the grounds). Start in the center of the grounds, pouring at a medium flow rate, moving out to the edge and then back into the middle. The goal during this second pour is to sink all of the grounds on the surface of the bed. This creates a gentle turbulence that “stirs” the coffee, allowing water to more evenly extract the grounds.
