V60 is the name for a single cup brewer designed by Hario – the 60 stands for the angle in degrees that forms the shape of the cone.



  • Dose – 15g coffee : 250ml water
  • Grind – Medium-fine. Consistency: caster sugar
  • Hario V60 Brewer
  • Hario V60 Filter papers
  • Hot water just off the boil (93–95ºC)
  • Scales
  • Timer
  • Mug



  1. Rest your V60 on a cup or server and place filter paper into the brewer.
  2. Wash the filter paper with hot water whilst sat in the V60 to wash away potential papery taste and to warm up the brewer.
  3. Dispose of water from the brewer and place ground coffee into filter paper – give the V60 a shake to level out the grinds.
  4. Place your V60 on a set of zeroed scales.
  5. Set your timer and pour 30g of hot water over the coffee, in a circular motion, wetting all the grounds. Fresh coffee will start to bubble and release gases at this stage – ‘blooming’ the coffee.
  6. Stir the coffee.
  7. After 20 seconds, slowly pour the remaining 150g of water over the coffee, wetting all the coffee grounds.
  8. The coffee should finish brewing in around 2 minutes 30 seconds – if it takes less time, or much longer, you may need to adjust your grind size.
