Our fearless leader James Hoffman has finally done it - he’s released The Ultimate V60 Technique™. Coffee nerds have long awaited a recipe from the 2007 World Barista Champion, World Atlas of Coffee author, and all around great guy. Well, here it is.
It doesn’t come without controversy though.
James recommends a few interesting techniques, one of which is creating a well in your bed before pouring. He introduces an interesting philosophy for the second and third pour that uses a percentage of total brew weight to calculate the dose, and then he caps it all off with not one stir, but one in each direction.
About half way though his brew, he drops a particularly hot take - don’t worry about pouring directly on the filter. Wait, what?
Let me know what you think! Have you tried his recipe yet?
