The Hario v60 coffee maker is easy to learn, but there are many variations used by baristas. We give you a recipe for 2 cups Hario v60 coffee, which you can prepare at home. This recipe is most often used by baristas in your favorite cafe.
Since we at Mariposa are ecologically oriented, we suggest that you do not throw away the residual water with which you initially wash the filter, but pour it into another container and cool it, watering plants such as houseplants or the garden. Also, do not throw away your coffee grounds filter. It is great for compost, as bacteria love paper and coffee. This way you will make a great fertilizer for your plants, either in the garden or for your potted plants. In doing so, just be careful not to use too much compost so as not to change the pH of the soil. Let it age as much as possible, at least a year.
To prepare Hario v60 coffee you need:
- Hario v60 filter paper,
- Hario v60 pitcher,
- Hario v60 dropper,
- 15 g coarsely ground quality freshly roasted Mariposa coffee,
Follow the procedure to prepare the Hario v60
Use a ratio of 1:15
Coarse grinding of coffee means that if 1 is the finest grind and 11 the coarsest that your grinder can achieve, grind the coffee to a thickness of about 7.
Place a dropper jug on the scales.
In a v60 dropper, insert the filter paper and place it on the jug. Rinse the paper 5 times with hot water and pour it into another container. By rinsing, you get rid of the taste of paper, and in addition, the dropper and jug are preheated so that the coffee does not cool down immediately.
Coarsely grind 20 g of coffee, or use already ground and put it in the filter, in the middle of the cone. Gently tap the dropper to flatten the coffee to keep its surface as flat as possible, as this is important for pouring water.
Cooking coffee step by step Hario v60
Press start on the clock. Gently add 50 g of water, which has almost boiled. The water should be hot around 93 ° C. If you do not have a temperature-controlled water heater, let the boiled water stand for a minute or two and you will already be close to that temperature. Pour the water in a circle from the outside of the filter towards the middle, slowly and gently.
Gently rotate or stir the cone to make sure all the coffee is wet and wait 30 seconds. If you have done this successfully, you will not see any bubbles or very few bubbles on the coffee and water mixture. This first wait is called flowering and is designed to let the gases trapped in the coffee out.
Then gently add more water until a total of 250 ml is added. Pour in a circular motion. Gently pour each new batch of water, trying not to stir too much coffee grounds in the filter.
When the topping is complete, stir gently again. Stirring will help ensure that all the coffee is evenly soaked.
Wait for the coffee to completely drip from the filter into the jug. The coffee grounds in the cone should be fairly flat when the process is complete.
Then spin the pitcher or cup and enjoy! Rotation helps to stir and aerate the coffee.
