Let’s be honest, you are here for one reason - you love coffee! We love it too however, quality coffee is what we live for. Pour- over is all about enjoying the full experience of excellent coffee which you would normally get at your local coffee shop with one difference - you can also do it at home!
We know we have mentioned a lot of essential requirements for that medal-worthy coffee already, but we still need to emphasize on the quality of water we use.
As coffee is 98 to 99 percent water, when making one a good- tasting water is key. You should know that you cannot get a fantastic flavor out of coffee without using the right water.
Few 'take aways ' here would be:
✅A carbon- filter pitcher should do a decent job for you as it will filter out any chlorine tastes and odours.
❌Distilled water however is not recommended as it cannot pull enough flavors from the coffee grounds.
❌Mineral water is a hard pass as it may be too hard, which results in dull, bitter coffee that lacks the pleasant acidity. You are not only risking the harsh and offensive taste of your coffee but also shortening the lifespan of your equipment.
✅Spring water is a YAAAS if you want to use a bottled water.
TEMPERATURE - WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
This is another crucial factor to be considered when making that pro-barista-level cup of coffee. You need to regulate the temperature of your water because if too hot, it will lead to over-extraction of flavors which exudes bitterness, and if too cold, the flavors will not be well extracted and that makes you a sour coffee drink. The standard temperature for a good coffee is 91°C (195°F) and 96°C (205°F). We think, the closer to 96°C (205°F), the better and with Brewello kettle you got this under control thank to the built in thermometer.
