The pourover coffee is deceptively simple. Fundamentally, pourover brewing requires pouring water through the coffee grounds to extract the flavours into a cup below. A few extra steps make all the difference—the right temperature of water, the accurate 1:17 ratio of coffee to water, and allowing the full 3 and a half minutes to brew. The patience allows practical time set aside for the rinsing of filters, “blooming” of grounds, and short pauses between each pour of water, but also a slowing down in our busy schedules for a rewarding and personal ritual. Pourover coffee is the elegant cousin of the tea ceremony, and the entire occasion is a treat for all senses: from the visual spectacle of water transforming the coffee grounds to the final satisfactory sip.
