Grind size: Coarse
Water Temp: 89 - 92 degrees Celsius
Ratio: 20g for 300 / 1:15
Brew time: 3min 30s
Rinse filter & pre-heat pour over vessel of your choice.
Pour in 20g of coarse-ground coffee
Add 60g of water per pour 5 times, waiting 45s between each pour. This results in a total brew of 300g.
Control the balance of the coffee by modifying the 1st and 2nd pours. For a sweeter brew, make a smaller first pour (e.g. 50g). For more acidity, a larger one will do the trick.
Use either less or more water for the second pour to compensate for the difference (if any) in the first one.
The 3rd, 4th and 5th pours can be tweaked to 2 larger 90g pours for a weaker brew, or into 4 smaller 45g pours for a stronger one.
