Now that you’re up to speed on the why you need to try pour over coffee, here’s more info on the how to make hand-pour coffee. Pick up this simple, inexpensive and sleek Bodum Coffee Maker and you’re be downing delicious pour-over coffee in your own kitchen in no time.
For the perfect cup of coffee, simply fill the cone-shaped filter with freshly ground coffee and pour a small amount of heated water over them until soaked. Slowly pour the remaining hot water into the filter. Coffee will drip into the mouth-blown, borosilicate glass carafe and, in 3-4 minutes, will be ready to serve.
The pour over brew method features a fine mesh stainless steel filter that eliminates the need for paper filters. Paper filters actually absorb the coffee’s essential oils hence robbing coffee of true flavor, plus no paper filter mean no waste.
Delicious coffee in a contraption that costs less than a hardcover book. Not bad.
