Coffee pour over above hero

There are a number of ways to pour hot water over coffee, but at their heart they are all pretty similar. The V60 is the easiest to get started with, it’s relatively cheap and gives you a lot of control over the brew. The Chemex is another popular pour-over technique, which makes you look more serious about what you’re doing, but yields pretty similar results.
