Disclaimer: I love coffee and will go to great lengths to make a good cup. But the art of making it is simple, if requiring some investment up front. A good burr grinder, a gooseneck kettle (variable temperature is best, but a simple one will work as well) to heat water up to the right temperature - most auto drip machines simply don't take water to a high enough temperature, filtered tap water, your brewing device of choice, and of course, freshly ground, good quality coffee beans preferably from a roaster you know and trust. Over the years, I have tried several brewing methods - Moka Pot, French Press, a Bonavita drip coffee maker, an AeroPress, and pour over. Quite simply, no other technique extracts the nuances of flavor from coffee beans like manual brewing does. My other pour over method, which I've used for over a year, is to use the detachable brew cone of my Bonavita drip coffee maker as a manual brew basket; using it that way makes better coffee than the same machine, very highly regarded though it is, in auto drip mode; even people who are far less into coffee than I am easily notice the flavor difference, which speaks to the superiority of manual brewing.
I won't go over the technique I use, other than to say don't bother with the instruction sheet written in Japanese included in the box. There are a number of excellent YouTube videos that go over how to use this device. Use a scale to weigh the coffee and brew if you're obsessive (I am), or just go by volume. Do make sure that, whatever method you use, your ratio of coffee to water is in the ballpark of 16:1. This means if you use 500 ml (about 2 cups) of water to brew, you'll need 31 grams of beans. The little scoop that came with the device holds about 15 grams of beans, perfect to make 1 cup, if you don't have a scale. You'll need to experiment with grind size. I use a Baratza Virtuoso at home and Encore at work, and a setting of 14 is a good starting point on either machine. Pre-infusion and assuring a proper water temperature are important - these are the main reasons why manual brewing is better than auto drip. If you don't have a thermometer or variable temperature kettle, then taking the kettle off boil and waiting ~30 seconds should get you in the right range. And if you live in the Northern Hemisphere and choose to execute your pour clockwise instead of counter clockwise, you (probably) will not slow down the rotation of the earth or have the Coriolis Force ruin the flavor of your brew.
Other things to note: the brewing cone is made of BPA free plastic (I checked with the supplier), the glass carafe is nicely designed. The brewing cone takes #2 Hario conical filters which are available on Amazon; your local coffee shop probably carries them too. This is a nice size to make 2 cups, perhaps a little more; I am referring here to 220-240 ml cups, not 120 ml cups as marked on the glass carafe. It does come with a nice stash of filters to get you started, more than enough to last you as you order or buy more.
This is one of those few things in life where you actually get your money's worth. Highly recommended, and I'm always happy to answer any questions you have if you leave a comment.
Enter this Hario V60. With this great little brewer, you have two options:
Option 1: Make Mediocre Coffee by Using it Wrong
I chose Option 1 by looking at the indecipherable instructions, written in Japanese, and said "____ it, I know how to make coffee," and poured boiling water into the coffee-filled top.
Option 1 produced serviceable coffee, comparable to what you'd get from a drip maker. After a few days, I considered taking my french press out of its retirement, because "serviceable" don't cut it.
Option 2: Make Great Coffee by Using it Correctly
Before admitting defeat, I *gasp* actually looked up how to use it. Since no reviewer, even those who noted they had to look up the instructions, has bothered to post their secrets, here's how I've been using it:
Step 1: Rinse the filter with boiling water by pouring it into the top funnel, over the entire filter, and dumping the resulting paper water
Step 2: Fill the filter with finely ground coffee and put it over the carafe
Step 3: Soak the coffee with just enough boiling water to get all the grounds wet
Step 4: Wait like half a minute, more like 15 seconds if you're impatient like me
Step 5: Slowly pour a tiny stream of boiling water in small concentric circles or spirals over the grounds until the pot is full of delicious coffee. Try to avoid pouring water onto the sides near the filter.
The instructions I found online included using a scale in Step 5 to know when to stop pouring by noting how heavy the pot + coffee is. Yeah, I just eyeball when to stop pouring based on the rate of coffee passing through the filter and how full the pot is, and the world has not ended. The instructions also say a goose-necked kettle is best for a slow, controlled pour. That may be true, but my regular, non-goose necked electric kettle works just fine.
I get why rinsing the filter is needed, but how soaking the grounds makes the coffee infinitely better is a mystery I don't need solving. But it does.
This cheap little funnel and pot, used correctly, produces excellent, excellent coffee, easily on par with and, I dare say, probably tastier than my french press (RIP) made. Highly recommended.
