Which Coffee Beans take your pour-over experience to the next level?

There is something magical about a perfectly brewed pour-over coffee. The gentle pour, the fragrant aroma, and the meticulous extraction process all contribute to a cup of coffee that transcends the ordinary.

At Vicky Coffee, we understand the importance of using exceptional beans to create a pour-over experience that will captivate your senses. In this blog post, we will explore some of our best coffee beans for pour-over brewing.

So, what is pour-over?

The pour-over method involves pouring hot water through coffee grounds in a filter. The water drains through the coffee and filter into a carafe or mug. The method uses a specific and most optimal coffee to water ratio, which according to the Specialty Coffee Association’s Golden Cup Standard, is 55grams per litre.

What is so special about this method is that it accentuates the various intricate flavours making it the perfect brewing method for single origin coffees since it allows the flavours and aromas to shine.

Good filter coffee is clean, clear, and consistent as water is allowed to extract coffee oils and fragrances in its own time and pressure with the filter catching a lot of oils, leading to an overall pleasant, clean, and delicious cup of coffee.

Which coffees should you choose for pour-over?

Technically, you can use any kind of bean for pour-over, but some beans work better than others for giving you a great pour-over experience since the method brings out the various subtle flavours and makes them more prominent. For that reason, light to medium roast single origin beans can be a great option for pour-over.

Without further ado, here are some coffee beans that would suit this brewing method perfectly.
