V60 Daily Driver

This recipe is based on a Kalita Wave recipe I’ve learned while doing a workshop at Brew Lab in Edinburgh. It works just as well with a V60, and I use it with whatever brewer I so happen to fancy (and have filters for) at the time.


Coffee: 19g Water: 300g Brew time: ~3 minutes


  1. Heat your water to ~95°C
  2. While the water is heating, grind your coffee beans medium coarse
  3. Put the paper filter into the V60, the V60 on top of your mug (or caraffe), and rinse with ~100g of hot water
  4. Pour the water out and zero the scale



  1. Add your grounds to the V60 and add double the amount of water, or ~40g.
    Let it bloom for 30 seconds.

Slow phase

  1. After the bloom phase, add water up to 100g and wait to 1:00
  2. Add another 50g of water, wait to 1:30

Quick phase

  1. Now we add 25g every 10 seconds.

    At 2:00, we’re at 225g
    At 2:30, we’re at 300g and at the end of our brew.

The rest of the water should be drained out of the coffee bed around the 3 minute mark.

Enjoy! ☕
