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.

We've used our Pour Over Kettle and Drip Through Coffee Filter to make ours!
