4 Simple Steps to Brew Single Cup Hario V60 From Home

  • Dosage: 29 Grams for 440 mL (66g/L)
  • Grind: Medium (or finer) (15-20/40)
  • Temp: Off the boil (I brewed at 203°-205°)
  • Pre-Infusion: Pre-wet and let sit for 45 seconds
  • Total Time: N/A


  1. Rinse Filter
  2. Grind and pour coffee into V60 shaking to settle grounds.
  3. Pre-infuse with water allowing it to sit 45 seconds
  4. Begin pouring from the centre out clockwise in a circular motion until the volume is reached.

This method worked surprisingly well for two reasons: first, it was a pretty general method which left it up to you to fill in some parameters per the coffee. Second, while the dosage was higher than 60g/L and the brew temperature high (Let the water sit for a bit after boiling so the temperature was probably at 203°-205°) the grind was coarser which guarded against over-extraction.
