How to Make Pour-Over Coffee

This classic brewing technique is a minimalist — and cost-effective — way to enjoy the healthy benefits of java.

Pour Over Coffee

Each day Americans drink 400 million cups of coffee. And while single-serve coffee makers and espresso machines have changed the way many of us make coffee at home, some people are opting to return to less-automated techniques.

Pour-over coffee offers more control over the flavor of your drink than other brewing techniques — plus, it’s easier to clean than the popular French press.

Experiment with the grind and roast of your beans, water temperature, and brew tools to find your preferred strength and flavor and to become a pour-over pro.
