The Modest Kitchen Tool For Pour-Over Coffee Without A Fancy Setup
While some people swear by their fancy equipment for making pour-over coffee, all you really need is a small fine mesh sieve or strainer fitted with a coffee filter.
Simply place the strainer over your cup of choice and begin the pour-over process, but be sure that the filter fully covers the sieve and that the sieve is not too wobbly.
A good ratio to follow with pour-over coffee is one part coffee to 15 parts water, so multiply the grams of coffee by 15 to find out how many grams of water you should use.
The water’s temperature should be between 195 degrees Fahrenheit and 205 degrees Fahrenheit, which can be reached by boiling water and allowing it to sit for 30 seconds.
After preparing the grounds and water, pour just enough water over the grounds to soak them. After 30 seconds, pour the remaining water and let the coffee brew for four minutes.
