How to Make Perfect Coffee with the Bodum Pour Over

Pour over coffee is renowned for its smooth taste, rich flavour and bold aroma. It also benefits from being simple and swift to make, which is ideal when you want a superb cup of joe without any fuss. Ground beans, hot water, a filter and a carafe – that’s all you need.

Here’s a helpful guide to the pour over method – you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how easy it is. With our tips, you can refine your coffee-making technique and enjoy every last drop.

All of our Pour Over coffee makers feature a fine mesh filter made of stainless steel. This reusable filter eliminates the need for disposable paper filters, enabling you to make taste, not waste. It’s not only more environmentally friendly than paper alternatives but also more effective, as it doesn’t rob you of the coffee’s vital essential oils. The carafe is made of mouth-blown, heat-resistant borosilicate glass, which has been selected for its superior performance. It allows the coffee’s full-bodied flavour to take centre stage. The wrap-around cuff protects your hands from the hot liquid and is comfortable to hold.

01

Coffee

Place your Bodum® Pour Over coffee maker on a heatproof, non-slip surface. Add fresh, ground coffee beans to the cone-shaped filter. We recommend using one Bodum® scoop or rounded tablespoon of a lightly roasted, medium grind for each cup of coffee you wish to serve. With your finger, make a small hole in the centre of the ground beans.

Water

Boil fresh water in a kettle (125 ml/4 oz. per cup) then wait 30 seconds so the temperature dips just below boiling point. You might like to monitor it with a food thermometer: 93-97°C is ideal. Begin the brewing process by pouring water over the hole you made. Work your way outwards then back to the centre of the ground beans in a circular motion. Cover them with just enough water to ensure they’re evenly saturated.

Top tip: a gooseneck kettle is an excellent choice when making pour over coffee. Its long, thin spout gives you more control over the flow of the water than an ordinary kettle.

Brew

Pause for 30 seconds to allow the coffee to bloom, a process that enhances its taste. The ground beans bubble as their gases are released. Next add the remaining water in stages: pour a third of it over the ground beans, wait another 30 seconds, and then pour the rest. Use a circular pouring motion, as in the previous step.

 

Enjoy

Now you just need to wait two or three minutes for the water to finish passing through the ground beans. You’ll see delicious, freshly brewed coffee steadily filling the carafe beneath the filter. The medium grind ensures that extraction occurs at the optimum rate, neither too quickly nor too slowly, leading to the best flavour.
Remove the filter, add the convenient, long-handled lid to the carafe and pour out your coffee through the lid’s opening. Serve and enjoy!

Top tip: the Bodum Bistro double wall mugs’ innovative design keeps your coffee at the most enjoyable temperature for longer while being cool to the touch.
