What is Pour Over Coffee?

Pour over is a method of pouring hot water over coffee grounds in a filter. The water drains through the coffee grounds and filter, and ultimately into a mug or cup. The popularity of this method grew as coffee drinkers appreciated its ability to offer a certain amount of control in flavor variation. What sets pour over apart from other brewing methods is the hand pouring of water over the coffee grounds. That is why it is called manual brewing. All one would require for this brewing method is a cup, a filter, a funnel and kettle with hot water.

Pour over is an infusion method of brewing, in contrast to immersion methods of brewing, like the French Press, in which coffee grounds are fully submerged and mixed with water, creating a rough texture for your coffee’s mouth feel. Pour over is known for its clean texture, which is a result of using a filter which catches any major coffee solids before they enter the vessel. The pour over produces a consistently great coffee every time because there is more control over the heat and the timing of the water poured over the grounds.

Why Choose Coffeeza’s Single Serve Pour Over Coffee?

Traditionally pour over is a bit of a tedious manual process, where you need a funnel of some material to place the filter on, not to mention the variations available for both these items. Then you have to grind the coffee beans, measure the exact portion of coffee grounds needed, place the funnel and filter above the mug and so on. The time taken to set up this entire kit to brew just one cup is a bit of an over kill. These items are definitely handy and portable, but not convenient to carry around.
