How to Make Pour Over Coffee

At its simplest, Pour Over Coffee is made by pouring a slow, steady stream of hot water over coffee grounds through a filter, directly into a cup. Whilst seemingly simple, the process requires practice, patience and precision. From the temperature of the water and the speed with which you pour to the grind and volume of the coffee - there are numerous factors that go into making it correctly. However, it's well worth spending the time perfecting the art of making Pour Over Coffee, as the finished product is a full-flavoured but delicate cup of coffee with more nuance and subtlety than you'd get with a traditional coffee machine.

We've put together a handy step by step guide to help you unleash your inner coffee connoisseur and make the process easier than ever.

All About Kombucha

Kombucha is a fermented drink made from sweetened tea and a live culture known as 'SCOBY' (Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeasts) that becomes a delicious alternative to other carbonated beverages such as lemonade. It is largely classified as a functional beverage, meaning that it is a non-alcoholic drink that contains vitamins, amino acids or other nutrients.

Originating in Northeast China (and historically referred to as Manchuria) around 220 B.C, Kombucha is renowned for its healing properties, including probiotic benefits that encourage gut bacteria diversity and aid digestion. Despite a slight dip in international popularity during WWII as a result of tea and sugar supply shortages, Kombucha saw sales surge following a 1960s study conducted in Switzerland that compared its 'powers' to that of yoghurt.

We'll be discussing how Kombucha is made, some of the incredible benefits of this drink and how to spice up your own Kombucha with a whole host of flavour recommendations!
