Pour Over Coffee Explained
by Lance Merryweather
Pour Over coffee with a Gooseneck Pouring Kettle and Glass Drip Filter is a stripped-back method inspired by Japanese brewing techniques. This Pour Over brewing method is slow-brew technique that will cultivate a fully-developed flavour and body to your favourite coffee.
In this Pour Over method, fresh coffee grounds are added to a filter and placed over a carafe – preferably glass for maximum theatrical impact, see our Premium double walled glass drip filter.
Water brought to the boil is decanted into a Gooseneck Pouring Kettle and steadily poured over the coffee grounds, rather than flooding the filter, a measured amount of water is used over several minutes.
Decanting boiling water into the Gooseneck Pouring Kettle will also manage the temperature to prevent scalding the coffee grounds and impairing the taste.
The water drips into the carafe in a slow and precise process that will make every sip of coffee rich with complex flavours.
