You Will Need
- Coffee grinder
- Pour-over cone
Grind the coffee
Freshly grind your coffee. Using fresh, whole beans makes for the best-tasting coffee, so pick up an inexpensive coffee grinder and start making coffee like the pros.
Heat the water
Heat the water until it's very hot but not boiling.
Set your cone
Set your cone on your cup, insert the filter, and add your preferred amount of coffee grounds. The recommended measurements are around 2 tablespoons per 6 ounces of water.
Pour the water
Pour the water over the coffee. There are a few different ways to do this: one way is to constantly pour very slowly over the coffee for one to four minutes. You can also use the stop and go method where you pour and then stop, pour and stop.
Remove the cone, and enjoy this yummy treat. You'll be surprised at the caliber of coffee the pour-over method produces.
