HISTORY OF V-60 POUR OVERThe Hario company, founded in Japan in 1921, invented the V60 in the 1950s. Previously they specialized in heat-resistant glassware for scientific research purposes.V60's name comes from its letter V shape, which is under the angle of 60 degrees. The resulting cone was designed to hold a paper filter, had a large drip hole and the inner side of the brewer had spiral ribs, allowing the air to be released while brewing. These are the standard features of the V60. Almost nothing has changed from the original design that came to reality in 2004. It is still produced today, with the addition of other design features, manufactured with high-quality materials.
HOW DOES V-60 POUR OVER WORKS?V60 is a pour over method. That means water passes through the ground coffee bed by gravity. The paper filter is slightly thinner than that of a Chemex, yielding a little more body, yet letting through many complex aromatics and solubles. It requires an attentive and consistent pouring technique to ensure all the coffee grinds get coated evenly.
The V60 has three qualities that impact its brewing ability. Firstly, its cone shape lets the water poured over flow towards its centre, for longer contact time with the grounds. Secondly, its single hole means that the flavour of the coffee can be altered by changing the speed at which the water is poured in. Finally, the cone has spiral ribs on the inside, which allows more air to escape and maximises the expansion of the coffee grounds.
This option is for those who really want to enter the rich universe of homogenous coffees, those who aren’t afraid of fruity notes, pleasant acidity, sweetness and clarity. The V60 was first introduced in ceramic and glass, then plastic, and finally metal. People use different forms of V-60 as per their liking and comfort.
The dripper will give you a clear brew with an easily recognizable flavour profile of a particular coffee. Everything depends on the type of grounds used. You really should give the dripper a chance and let it inside your brewing bar.
