HOW TO USE A COFFEE POUR-OVER BREWER

Starbucks pour-over is a beautifully simple and accessible way to brew a single cup of pour-over coffee with a clean, fully developed flavor and body.

Step-By-Step

STEP ONE – MEASURE AND BOIL

Measure as much water as you’re going to use to brew, plus a little extra for rinsing the filter, and bring it to a boil.

STEP TWO – PRE-MOISTEN FILTER

Briefly rinse the paper filter with hot water, and discard the rinse water. This will give your coffee the purest flavor possible.

STEP THREE – MEASURE AND GRIND

Next, measure your coffee, using coffee ground for a paper cone. It’s a relatively fine grind that looks like granulated sugar. Measure 2 tablespoons of coffee per 6 ounces of water.

STEP FOUR – POUR AND PAUSE

Use hot water that’s just off the boil and fill the cone halfway to saturate the grounds. Pause for 10 seconds and let the coffee bloom. This allows the coffee to hydrate evenly and begin to develop flavor.

STEP FIVE – COMPLETE THE POUR AND ENJOY

Slowly add the rest of the water, pouring in small, steady circles to cover all the grounds. Enjoy immediately.

TIP: To make your pour-over more consistent, use a timer. It should take about 3 minutes to make a cup.
