There are many pour over coffee drip systems on the market. Each with their own intricacies and niches. The premise behind the Hario V60 Ceramic Drip Cone is similar to any other pour over system: a filter is placed in the cone, coffee grounds in the filter, place the cone over a mug, and pour near boiling water over the grounds.
Unlike many of the pour over coffee cones on the market, the Hario V60 features a massive star shaped hole. Generally, these cones feature one to three small holes to allow the coffee to steep as it filters through the cones, aiding in extraction of the oils that make coffee so delicious. Yet, the Hario V60 has this enormous outlet.
This outlet requires precision pouring. It means you can’t just dump your water from your kettle into the cone. You’ve got to finesse it little. This is a pour over system for the somewhat patient, who understand that anything worth doing, is worth doing right. It requires a steady hand and smooth pouring motion. This doesn’t mean you have to be a coffee scientist, you just have to care little.
