Brewing

Percolation

This method involves pouring hot water over fresh coffee grounds to extract flavour. Popular methods include V60, Chemex and Kalita Wave. Here as a starting point we would suggest a ratio of approximately 65 g of dry coffee per litre of water, scaled up or down depending on how much you’re brewing, and aim for a brew time of around 3 minutes, either by using a fine grind to slow the flow through the coffee bed, or by spacing out your pours to increase the total contact time.
