Favorite Way to Make Coffee: Jimmy Lewis, Relevant Roasters

I’m particularly fond of the pour-over, and the device I use is a Hario V60.

I use a 1-to-16 ratio of grounds to water, so an 8.5 oz. cup of pour-over coffee takes a level tablespoon.

Heat the water to 200 degrees, then pour a little bit on the grounds to let the coffee bloom. Then pour the water in small doses — four or five total — to keep saturating the coffee with new water.

I don’t have a formula for how long I wait to drink it, but the optimum drinking temperature is 155° to 175°. Interestingly, as coffee cools, the notes of the coffee become more detectable.
