What sets the V60 apart from other coffee drippers?
V60 Feature 1: Cone Shape
The V60's distinctive cone shape allows the layers of coffee grounds to become thicker than on the flat surface of a traditional trapezoid-shaped dripper. The cone-shape lets hot water flow toward the centre, allowing it to stay in contact with the coffee grounds longer and ensuring a proper extraction of taste and aromatic constituents from the coffee grounds.
V60 Feature 2: Spiral Ribs
When the coffee is saturated, the high ribs do not hinder its expansion, and a layer of air is created between the paper and the dripper wall. The twisted ribs prevent the paper and the dripper from sticking to each other, letting the air flow through and allowing the coffee to expand adequately. This promotes a smooth extraction.
V60 Feature 3: One Single Hole
The V60 features one large hole at the bottom, as opposed to several smaller ones seen in for example traditional trapezoid-shaped drippers. This allows the tip of the filter paper to protrude through the hole, which in turn allows the hot water to perform extraction closer to that of a cloth filter, as it is unrestricted by the dripper. Changing the pour speed allows you to brew coffee with your preferred taste, stronger or lighter.
A V60 for everyone
The V60 is available in different sizes. Available sizes are known as 01, 02 and 03, which are intended for brewing 1~2, 1~4 and 1~6 cups, respectively.
Moreover, the V60 is also available in many different materials. From the familiar and durable plastic, to the popular and colourful ceramic, as well as heatproof glass, stainless steel and even luxurious copper!
Of course, you can also find many ready-to-brew V60 sets, containing everything you need to get started with specialty coffee.
The V60 was designed for accessibility, versatility, and most importantly, making good coffee. And that it does!
