The Reviva ritual for V60 brewing

  1. Start by placing the filter inside the V60 and fold the seam to create a cone shape.
  2. Put the V60 atop your jug or brewing chamber.
  3. Pour hot water (approx. 94°C) over the filter and into the jug to dampen it, then discard the excess water.
  4. Add your ground coffee to the cone, and ensure it’s evenly distributed.
  5. Set a timer and pour 50ml of water over the coffee.
  6. After 30 seconds, continue pouring 120ml of water into the coffee in a slow, circular motion.
  7. Wait for one minute and enjoy the indulgent aroma.
  8. Finish by pouring 80ml of water over the coffee within 90 seconds.
  9. Gently stir to level out the grounds, then wait for the coffee to drip.
  10. After two to three minutes, your brew should be finished. Remove the filter and behold your perfect pour-over.

Your Questions Answered

Can I use pre-ground coffee in a V60?
Absolutely! While grinding your own beans enhances flexibility and flavour, our pre-ground coffee is crafted to ensure you capture the essence of Reviva in every pour.

What size coffee grind works best with a V60?
Aim for a medium to fine grind, but remember, it’s all about personal preference. If your coffee drips too slowly, try adjusting to a coarser grind to find a brew right for you.

Why do I need to wet the filter paper first?
Preparing your filter paper is an essential step in crafting the perfect pour-over. Not only does it eliminate any paper taste that could seep into your brew, but it also serves to warm up your cup or jug before you pour.

Do I need a pour-over kettle for brewing V60 coffee?
While not essential, ‘Gooseneck’ or pour-over kettles are game-changers for V60 brewing. Their precision spouts offer control over water flow and direction. However, it’s important to remember that your intention and process are the key to creating a sound brew.
