Coffee Recipes You Can Make Using a Pour Over Coffee Maker


Coffee is sublime when you brew using a pour over. Brewed coffee is not the only type of coffee you can make using this coffee maker, but you can also come up with various coffee drinks using a dose of pour over coffee. For this month’s coffee recipes feature, we give you the lowdown on how you can make the most out of your pour over coffee maker just by adding some sugar, spice, and everything nice.

Before we take you on these awesome recipes, here’s the simplified step-by-step process on how to make brewed coffee using a pour over. The recipes below use pour over brewed coffee as a base.



Step 1: Heat Water

Heat fresh filtered water to 195 to 205 degrees Fahrenheit (90 – 96 degrees Celsius). Use a gooseneck kettle which has a thermometer to help you check the right temperature.

Step 2: Grind Coffee Beans

Grind 24 grams of coffee (for 400 ml of water or 2 cups of coffee) to a medium-fine coarseness. The coarseness would resemble sea salt. You can adjust the amount of coffee according to strength or flavor.

Step 3: Pre-Wetting

If you’re using paper filters, fold the filter into fourths by separating one outer layer from the other three layers to create your cone. Place the filter into the carafe and rinse it with hot water. When all of the water has dripped into the carafe, pour it out. This eliminates the papery taste of the filter. If you want to save money from buying paper filters over and over again, you ought to get your hands on a reusable coffee drip filter.

Step 4: Pre-brew

Pour the coffee grounds on the center of the filter. In a slow and controlled manner, pour about a fifth of the water into the coffee grounds. Wait for 30 seconds as you allow the grounds to settle.

 Step 5: Brew

Slowly pour in the rest of the water. The coffee should take no longer than 3 – 4 minutes to brew.
