Hario V60 Brew Guide

Updated: Jun 30


My favorite, and daily go-to brewer at home is the Hario V60. This sturdy, ceramic pour over coffee brewer makes a delicious cup and is great at highlighting some of the more interesting fruity and floral notes of a coffee while still keeping the sweet, chocolate and caramel-type notes as well.


The V60 easily makes a single cup but is also large enough to brew a pot to share.

Need to add a V60 to your coffee kit or restock on filters? You can order on our Home Gear page.


This brew guide is just that, a guide. Every coffee is a little bit different so the variables may have to be tweaked. Stick to the ratio that you like and adjust the grind a bit to keep it in the time range. Let your tastes buds be the guide. Check out this blog post to better understand the variables, how they effect the taste and how to adjust for the best cup.


11 oz / 320g Cup

Coffee: 20 grams

Grind: Fine to Medium-Fine

Water: 320 grams at 195-205 degrees F

Ratio: 1:16

Brew Time: 2:15-2:30


  1. Fold along the seam of the filter so it fits snugly inside of the V60.

  2. Wet the filter with hot water. This preheats the brewer and rinses the filter.

  3. Dump out the preheat water.

  4. Add your coffee to the brewer. Shake lightly to settle the coffee and create a flat, even bed.

  5. Pour 40 grams of water to wet all the grounds. With a gooseneck kettle, start in the center and pour in a circular motion to the outer edge and back in again.

  6. Allow coffee to bloom for 30 seconds (off-gassing of CO2, with fresh coffee you'll see the wet ground rising).

  7. Continue pouring in the circular motion until you've poured 320 grams of water.

  8. Coffee should finish draining about 2:15.

  4. Add your coffee to the brewer. Shake lightly to settle the coffee and create a flat, even bed.

  5. Pour 50 grams of water to wet all the grounds. With a gooseneck kettle, start in the center and pour in a circular motion to the outer edge and back in again.

  6. Allow coffee to bloom for 30 seconds (off-gassing of CO2, with fresh coffee you'll see the wet ground rising).
