Here at HARIO we have been very fortunate to be able to work with some of the best baristas and coffee experts in the world.
For our 100th anniversary, we interviewed several of our V60 Ambassadors, and got great, new insights into the world of coffee, as well as some amazing V60 recipes!
In this article, we talk to the 2018 World Barista Champion, Agnieszka Rojewska.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU WORKED IN THE COFFEE INDUSTRY?
I started in the coffee industry in 2009 when I worked in a chain coffee shop at a train station.
WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST V60 ENCOUNTER?
I don’t remember exactly, but my guess is that I saw it somewhere and decided to buy it. My first V60 was a red porcelain 01 ‒ and at the time I bought it I didn’t know what to do with it!
WHY DO YOU LOVE THE V60?
I like the V60 because it is one of the most commonly used devices which means it’s very easy to experiment or use someone else’s recipe at home.
A MESSAGE FOR HARIO
Keep making us brewers happy! :)
V60 used: Metal
It is my general rule that for every coffee I try to hit a total time of 2:15. It’s perfect for people that don’t wish to wait too long! Most of the time I use a medium grind size and make two pours.
- Allow 15 seconds to pre-infuse.
- Use one continuous pour with a gentle circle pour.
Do this until you hit 150mL.
- Then for the remaining 100mL, centre pour with speed and keep the level of water consistent.
- The pouring should stop at around 1:00.
