  1. At work on an offshore rig I got two water options. From tap, which is produced on the rig, and bottled water. The tap water is no good, so I'm using bottled water. I'm not too happy with the water quality though. Brews made with the same beans I use at home tends to be more acidic and overall less great. I brew V60. Is it possible to add something to the bottled water to potentially improve the quality of my brews? I know some people make their own brew water with distilled water and some minerals. If the bottled water is low in minerals or the balance is off somehow, would it be possible to add some minerals to it?
  2. Hello everyone. I'm finding myself drawn more to pourovers these days, often leaving the espresso machine off of a morning and having a couple of V60s before heading out. I like savouring the coffee for a bit longer, and seem to have started cutting back on the milky drinks too. I'm currently considering moving away from espresso, selling the machine and grinder, and buying myself a gooseneck and different grinder (hey, I can always go back later!) One thing I really enjoy about coffee is swapping between beans and trying new coffees. Please excuse what's probably a very basic question, but I want to check... is it easier to dial in a grinder to single dose a few different beans for pourover than it is with an espresso machine? i.e. are the margins a bit more forgiving? Also, I'm currently using a Sette 270W grinder for espresso, but it's too fine for pourovers. Any recommendations on good grinders in the £300-400 region? I'd considered getting a Niche, but still a bit uncomfortable investing that much in a product that hasn't been mass produced yet (although I'm aware of the personnel's credentials). Two things I like about the Niche are the cover all (so I wouldn't need to reinvest in a grinder if I decided on another 'spro machine) and the aesthetic/floor space (to keep my wife happy!). Any expertise and wisdom from you all would be much appreciated! Thanks.
  3. When pouring pourovers in stages, do you let the coffee-bed become visible before adding more water? Matt
  4. I'm just curious (as a newbie to the brewing side of things) if the December Dripper allows some other equipment to be covered with its mechanism. For example, could it act as a Kalita/V60 type pourover and Clever style immersion in one package? Would it perhaps provide a useful investment for someone wanting to try a few different ways of making filter coffee? If anyone has any experience with the dripper I'd be keen to hear as I'm starting to get a little collection of brewing gear together. Of course, it doesn't solve the issue of where I can actually buy one in the UK...!
  5. Just wondered if anyone has any experience, and thoughts on the Kalita kettle? I've heard mixed reviews, with some commenting on a poor build quality, bits falling off etc. Can anyone here shed some light?
  6. Hi everyone, what do you think is the easiest and least time-consuming pour-over option? Does it produce a good tasting brew? Thanks.
  7. Hi all, Apologies if this has been asked before, but I couldn't find anything on a quick search. I'm after a grinder upgrade - I've been using a small Dualit conical burr grinder for several years now, and whilst the rest of my coffee equipment and brewing technique has been completely revolutionised, the grinder has become the weak link with an inconsistent grind that is affecting the consistency of my cups. It needs an upgrade. I tend to prove it a mixture of styles – predominantly AeroPress and pourover/Chemex, with the occasional siphon and French press pot. At some point in the next few years getting the specific machine, but haven't got the space/time/money for it right now. I am after a new grinder for £300-400 that would be usable for the break methods are used now, but also be a suitable match for a heat exchanger espresso machine, which I hope to get in the next couple of years. Thanks, a.
  8. Hey guys, in case anyone was after a kettle for pour-over but didn't want to spend heaps - I have a Buono kettle in great condition, always been very well looked after. I'm moving it on as it no longer receives use since I have another. If interested I am based in South London,with a possibility to deliver locally. Ta!
  9. Wanting a simple process at work, I've found myself giving up on caring too much chasing an intended brew time or adjusting grind for pourover (V60 or Kalita Wave) for each new coffee. I just leave the Feldfarb set to the same grind setting (2.5 turns), use the same weight of coffee each time but very the amount of water poured, until i find a ratio that suits each coffee at that same grind setting. This might be anywhere between 1:12 or 1:17 but I can generally get a pretty tasty, fruity and sweet cup out of the light- and medium-roast coffees I try. If i don't worry about the exact length of the drink I'm making, is there any downside to this method, something that I might be missing out on if I paid more attention to the target time and changed the grind settings to keep the weight of the final brew consistent? I don't have the equipment to measure my extractions yet, I'm afraid.
  10. Hello! I'm getting myself a Mahlkonig Vario this week, primarily for espresso. But I'd also like to try it for pourover and so have been reading about the steel burr set, recommended for larger grind sizes. Does anyone regularly swap between the two burr sets? How much hassle is it to change and recalibrate? I'd want the ceramics for my morning espresso and then maybe the odd steel burr session for a Sunday afternoon V60. Too much hassle? I know the ideal would be to have two grinders, but I can't afford a second Vario right now! I've got a small conical hand-grinder currently for pourover, I just would like to compare the effects of a flat-burr for pourover. What do you think?
  11. I had been considering some of the comments I've seen recently on Barista Hustle around the whole fines=good argument and thought I would conduct a little pour over experiment. My typical grind setting on the EK for a pour over is between 7 and 8 o'clock on the dial. For a 15g/250g brew this typically gives me an EY of around 21.00-21.50%. In order to increase the number of fines (and, I suspect, reduce the difference between the smallest and largest grind sizes, though that's only an assumption on my part) I thought I would try and brew the same extraction at a finer grind setting. I've now had a few cups with the grind setting around the 10 o'clock position and brewed at 15g/200g. This has resulted in cups with a similar EY, but of course much higher TDS (1.85 ish). I've then diluted the brew with hot water down to a more normal TDS. Effectively I have brewed the same coffee to the same TDS and EY but with a finer grind setting. The results have been tasty, the cup this morning of the April LSOL was the best I'd tasted it. I'm not making any great claims that this is a better way to brew, but I am encouraged to continue the experiment. Has anyone else been down this path? Probably requires a refractometer otherwise it's easy to get lost.
  12. I haven't got one of these but have seen good reviews and is clearly a competitor for the Hario electric gooseneck. Perect for pourover. This is the best price i've seen! http://coffeehit.co.uk/brewista-smart-brew-digital-kettle-1-2l-1135
  13. V60 Siphon French Press Chemex I'm having problems measuring the weight and especially that I don't have a water heater, often times I experience the water evaporating. I just can't really get the precise portion for manual brewing. I prefer my coffee slightly thicker and richer than average, so I usually just add a little bit more. Any help around here?
  14. Hi all, Just one quick question... about to open up a bag of Yirg from James Roasters and was just a bit confused about brewing with V60. Does the brew ratio (normally from 1:15 - 1:17 i believe) mean, say if you have 300ml of water - is that the water you add, or the total weight you get out? Because for espresso it's the weight you get out, so is it different for v60? Are there any sort of foolproof recipe's anyone an recommend? Thanks, Rory
  15. Hi I'm in the market for a drip kettle and not sure which one to go for. Narrowed it down to the buono, fino and the Brewista smartpour kettle with temp gauge. Anyone have any recommendations and best place to buy? Thanks Chris
  16. I've noticed when I'm drinking a V60 or Kalita in cafes, the brewed coffee seems much more transparent or clearer than the brews I make at home. Is this related to grinder (less fines?) or something else I'm not thinking of?
  17. Hi Is anyone interested in the Hario v60 Electric Coffee Grinder? I am selling them for £170 plus £6.50 for delivery. It's never been opened but the reason for selling this is because my client has changed his mind about needing a pourover grinder. I currently have two. I have attached hario's web info on the grinder. It is only for pour over coffee. I am also advertising this post elsewhere so i will update if i've sold out but can order more and happy to sell it at the same price just for coffee forum members. http://www.hario.co.uk/coffee/v60-electric-coffee-grinder.html Relevant info: Designed to grind directly into a V60 dripper using a switch pad. The grinder boasts 44 grind-size settings giving you choice while grinding. This means that it is ideal for V60, espresso, syphon, water dripper and anything else in between. The V60 grinder is capable of grinding at 3 grams per second without heating up the coffee bean and maintaining the fresh coffee taste in your cup. This is due to stainless steel conical burrs that shave the coffee beans instead of simply smashing them. The electric coffee grinder has 8 ounce or 240g hopper capacity making it perfect for both home and coffeehouse use. Hario V60 Electric Coffee Grinder Features 44 Grind Settings - Grind for any Pour over Method Conveniently Grind into a V60 dripper Consistent Stainless Steel Conical Burrs Grinding Speed - Over 3 Grams Per Second 8 Ounce / 240g Hopper Capacity Width: 230mm Depth: 135mm Height: 390mm Power: 130W Weight: 2.4Kg Stainless Steel blades ​
  18. Anyone tried double filtering (preferably with two different types of filter paper)? Anyone tried non-standard filter papers with a tighter lattice/weave whatever so it traps more oils/particulates? A cafe I recently attended told me they get their filter papers for kalita wave from a near by university and they are thicker/coarser than the standard papers and are able to remove more oils/particulates. I tried this morning to filter my pourover brew through a second paper (non-hario) and actually found less oily/precipitate on the surface as well as a clearer/cleaner feel. Wondering if this reduces the brew colloid and thus enhances flavour. The best example of too much brew colloid is a french press brew where oils and fines are suspended in the brew, adding to mouthfeel and body but significantly subtracting from flavour. Anyone? No?
  19. Hi All, I'm pretty new round here but doing my best to absorb as much information as possible. At the moment my preference is for brewed coffee using either the aeropress or the V60 (Chemex if I have guests because I bought the bigger one). My question though is what's so great about pouring kettles? I'm interested and almost buying one because of "hype" or weight of comments from people that I see on here and other sites but I'm trying to properly understand how they're so much better. I'm pretty happy with my standard kettle and a v60, so it'd be excellent if it was even better but I'm wondering in what way that would be? It'll also help me justify it to my other half, with our first baby on the way I have competition for my wages .
  20. There's such a focus (on forums as well as in shops) on espresso I feel like brewed doesn't get as much attention as I'd like! I've certainly been to many shops where the espresso is tasty but the quality of brewed coffee is lacking in comparison. That in mind it would be great to pick all your brains for coffee shops you think are producing great stuff. I'll start the ball rolling with: UK: Colonna & Smalls, Bath Established, Belfast Abroad: Barista Parlor, Nashville Panther, Miami Axil, Melbourne Filter, Melbourne
  21. Hi, I have used Brewmethods website for pourover methods but does anyone know of any books or other websites that talks more about brew methods

  24. I was reading the Brita testing thread and was interested to see other people experimenting with Zero Water. I started playing around with water a few weeks ago for pour over coffee and was really surprised by the impact on taste . I ended up having to grind much finer when using Zero Water to achieve an acceptably full taste. Adding powders (Third Wave) helped send the grind someway back the other way. I much preferred the Zero Water (plus Third Wave) to Brita water. Unfortunately, I found the Zero Water cartridges much too expensive. Family of four with weekend and morning/ evening weekday use, I have just finished my third filter at a cost of £45 (approx. £1000, annualised). I’ve just set up an Osmio Zero in the kitchen and hoping for better filter life compared with the ZeroWater. Curious to hear if anyone else has had similar experiences with ZeroWater filter life. (FYI I’m in North London (Finchley) and TDS meter shows 250 (so not off the scale). Ps thanks to DaveC for the helpful review.
  25. I'd like to have a go at making filtered coffee so looking for some advice and people's opinion on what the best method is? I currently just drink espresso at home and use the Aeropress when traveling. I get a decent cup from the Aeropress but not great. My preference is light roasted fruity coffee. Should I start with aV60, Melitta, Chemex or any other method? I don't have a gooseneck kettle so I'll either be using a normal kettle or the Osmio. I have grinders and scales.
