Coffee preparation guide: Using a V60 type brewer

Jao Joel

This is a variation of the Pour Over infusion method, which is also found in a Chemex filter coffee preparation. It has become common to use the trade name V60, from the Hario brand, to designate a full immersion infuser with a capacity of 2 cups. The reason being that the V60 is the best-selling model, for its ease of use and the great value for money it offers.

To be able to prepare a cup of hot coffee at any time of the day, all you need is ground coffee and a V60 on hand: get your infuser on this page .

    Salut Rémi,

    c’est le temps d’écoulement qui déterminera ton niveau de mouture mais également la force du café.

    Tu pourras, tout dépend de ton moulin, faire d epetit ajustement pour avoir la tasse parfaite :-)

    Merci pour l’information. Pour la moulure du grain, j’assume que si le café coule dans le temps présenté ça doit être ok (pour ma machine c’est le plus fin des auto drip)?
