his simple, beautifully engineered little cone allows delicious coffee to be made easily and affordably, without the need for an expensive machine. While additional pieces of equipment like drip kettles and servers may help a little, all you really need to make a fantastic brew with a V60 Coffee Dripper is a kettle to heat water, fresh coffee and a cup to stand it on.
Large opening at the bottom to facilitate even flow of water
Internal ridges to keep the paper from sticking to the sides, preventing channels from forming
Spiral ridges assist in making water turn supporting even extraction
Sits comfortably on most cups, mugs, milk frothing pitchers or servers
Easy to clean
The most common size for the Hario V60 Coffee Dripper is the 02 version as it allows you to brew anything from a single cup up to 4 (though many find the best results are with 1-2 cups). As such, if you're not sure which one to get, we'd suggest the 02 model. If you are only going to be brewing a single cup at a time, the 01 (1 Cup) is a great option but please bear in mind that it's difficult to make coffee 2 full mugs of coffee using this size. 01 Size - Good for 1-2 cups (1 mug) 02 Size - Good for 1-4 cups (1-2 mugs) Need filters?
Please note that normally the Hario Coffee Dripper does not come with filters included and they are needed to brew coffee.
Part of the beauty of the Hario V60 system is that it allows you to control your variables and experiment. Please treat the instructions below as a starting point but we would encourage you to make changes and see what works for you. Equally, different coffees may shine under slightly different brewing conditions. Boil about twice as much water as you actually need for the coffee Fold a paper filter along the seem (so it sits better in the cone) and place it inside Place the Coffee Dripper on top of your mug or server and rinse the paper filter with hot water Let the hot water sit to warm up all your brewing equipment Grind your coffee to a medium-coarse setting - about 70g per litre (~9g per 125ml cup) Discard the water you used to rinse the filter and then put the coffee grounds in the Coffee Dripper Tap the cone so that the bed of coffee ground flattens - some recommend making a small indentation in the middle Pour in a very small amount of water just to wet the grinds (which should have cooled to below 95 degrees) After 30s of the grinds soaking, very slowly pour the rest of your water into the cone in a spiral motion (following the direction of the ridges) Try to make the pouring speed consistent Always pour onto the coffee grounds, not onto the sides of the filter - you want the water to go through the coffee Pause if the cone is filling up too fast Allow all the water to come through the cone. Brewing times can be adjusted but quicker than 2 minutes or slower than 4 is probably too extreme on either side
