Brewing the Perfect Cup of Pour Over Coffee Using an Oxo Brewer
What is Pour Over Coffee?
Pour over coffee is a method of brewing coffee that is becoming increasingly popular among coffee lovers. It is a fairly simple method that involves pouring hot water over freshly ground coffee beans. The hot water extracts the flavor and aroma of the beans, producing a rich and complex cup of coffee.
Why Use an Oxo Brewer?
The Oxo brewer is a great choice for making pour over coffee. It is designed with a precise, adjustable valve that helps to control the brewing process. This allows you to choose the exact amount of water that is used to brew your coffee, ensuring that it is never too weak or too strong.
The Brewing Process
To brew a perfect cup of pour over coffee using an Oxo brewer, you will need to start by grinding the beans to a medium-fine consistency. Place the filter in the brewer and add the ground coffee. Start by pouring a small amount of hot water (around 200ml) over the grounds and allow it to sit for 30 seconds. This will help to release the flavor of the beans. Then, slowly pour the remaining hot water over the grounds in a circular motion. This will help to evenly extract the flavor and aroma of the beans. Allow the coffee to drip through the filter and into the carafe. Once the brewing process is complete, you will be left with a delicious cup of pour over coffee.
