How to Make Pour Over Coffee with a Melitta Cone
1.Put filter on.
Put filter in cone and place on top of coffee mug.
2.Measure out coffee.
Measure 2 TBSP of coffee ground medium fine per 8 oz water and disperse into the cone.
3.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.
4.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 from mug and enjoy!
