How to Make Melitta Pour Over Coffee

How to Make Melitta Pour Over Coffee? How exactly does a pour-over coffee maker work? Surprisingly enough, it’s pretty simple! If you want a good cup of coffee, in your home or on the road, a Melitta Pour Over Cone is a great option. The process is quick and the cleanup is even quicker.

What you’ll need to make Melitta pour-over coffee:

  • Melitta Pour Over Cone (plastic or porcelain)
  • Paper filter (#2 cone filters)
  • Prime Roast coffee, ground medium-fine for a paper filter (#5 grind on an industrial grinder)
  • Hot water
  • Your favourite mug

The time needed: 5 minutes.

How to Make Pour-Over Coffee with a Melitta Cone

  1. Put a filter on. Put the filter in a cone and place it on top of a coffee mug.
  2. Measure out coffee. Measure 2 TBSP of coffee ground medium fine per 8 oz water and disperse into the cone.
  3. Boil hot water. Boil water and then let it sit for 2-3 minutes after boiling. The ideal temperature is 195-205 degrees Fahrenheit. If the water is too hot it will result in bitter coffee.
  4. Pour hot water. Pour the hot water into the cone until the coffee becomes saturated. Let bloom for 30 seconds. Continue to pour water, in a circular motion, until the cone is filled. The slower you pour the hot water, the bolder and more developed your cup of joe will be. You can use a gooseneck kettle for precise pouring.
  5. Remove cone. Remove the cone from the mug and enjoy!
