In recent years, the pour-over method has gained popularity among third-wave coffee shops. It takes more than four minutes per cup, so it’s not ideal for someone who’s in a rush. On the plus side, it allows for experimentation to find a unique taste and reduces bitterness.
The three phases of pour-over coffee are wetting, dissolution and diffusion. Each step requires concentration and patience, but you’ll end up with a well-made, unique cup of java.
