WHAT IS POUR OVER COFFEE?
Pour over is a special manual drip brewing method that allows for a high level of control over the results. Using a cone designed to hold a filter and coffee grounds, hot water is slowly poured in a spiral pattern over the grounds and collected in a cup below. Adjusting variables such as grind size, water temperature and pouring speed can achieve different results in terms of boldness and taste.
Home baristas can experiment with these variables and use specific pouring techniques to achieve a delightful and personalized result. The pour over method can be a popular technique for coffee aficionados who have time to enjoy the handcrafted brewing process and want to make coffee for one or two people.
The process is about more than the flavor, though; many pour over coffee lovers find the careful attention to detail purposeful and calming.
