When making pour-over coffee, the two biggest factors are:
- Coffee bean quality
- Purity of water
However, every detail matters. Getting a consistent grind coarseness, using proper measurements, and having the right temperature water will also improve how your cup of joe tastes.
What you’ll need:
- Quality, fresh coffee beans (we gravitate toward beans from Guatemala and Ethiopia)
- Chemex coffeemaker
- Filtered water (we love this Berkey Water filter)
- Water kettle (something with a gooseneck spout is best for pouring)
- Paper filters
- Coffee grinder (the better the grind, the better the coffee.
