How to Make Pour Over Coffee with a Melitta Cone
- Put filter on.
Put filter in cone and place on top of coffee mug.
- Measure out coffee.
Measure 2 TBSP of coffee ground medium fine per 8 oz water and disperse into the cone.
- Boil hot water.
Boil water and then let it sit 2-3 minutes after boiling. Ideal temperature is 195-205 degrees Fahrenheit. If the water is too hot it will result in bitter coffee.
- Pour hot water.
Pour the hot water into the cone until coffee becomes saturated. Let bloom for 30 seconds. Continue to pour water, in a circular motion, until cone is filled. The slower you pour the hot water, the bolder and more developed your cup of joe will be. You can use a gooseneck kettle for precise pouring.
- Remove cone.
Remove cone from mug and enjoy!
