Be A Pour Over Pro

Ahhh Pour Over, my daily go-to. This is a good option if you're a brew-as-you-go person, rather than a drink-by-the-gallon Coffee drinker. There are tons of Pour Over devices out there, all of them are generally a cone shape, sometimes with bells and whistles like handles & ridges. There are also tons of filters; Bleached, unbleached, natural, reusable, etc. 

1.) Rinse your brewer & filter thoroughly. You'd be surprised what aromas filters can soak up, and you don't want to pull those into your brew.

(Not so) Fun story, while traveling this summer I kept all of my Coffee supplies in a box I used for my Hookah in the past. I am still trying to get the smell of Razzle Dazzle Raspberry Hooka out of my filters and even my Aeropress, so I may just need to start fresh, what a shame. Gross, right? Be careful, folks. 

2.) Grab your whole bean Coffee, and grind it at about a 6 or 7 level on a 1-10 scale. The Coffee grounds should look like a fine sand. 

3.) Toss the grounds into your Pour Over device and place it on your favorite mug, then pour about 4-5 tablespoons of just-off-boiling water over the Coffee. Give the Coffee about 30 seconds to Bloom (de-gas), this would be a good time to do some push ups or something. 

5.) Continually pour water over the grounds until your cup is filled and, Ta Da!, Coffee just as easy as Keurig but about 10X more delicious.
