Kalita Wave Brew Recipe April 2018 – Coffee
It is after many (many) years of brewing V60 – I have purchased a Kalita Wave 185!
** Disclaimer – I’m no expert – This is a set of rough guidelines, not written specifically for any particular coffee – I’m new to Kalita. **
“Despite pressure from nearly every coffee shop visited in the last 2 weeks, I’m sticking with Hario V60 and not moving to Kalita Wave.” – Adam Machin 2016
Preparation, kettle with 500ml of Brita filtered water boiled, coffee ground manually with Knock Aergrind.
Grind 15g of coffee. Rinse papers. Heat vessel.
Kalita Wave white 185 papers.
After adding 15 grams of coffee – shake to flatten coffee bed, depending on the coffee.
Add 50g of water, stir clockwise times with bamboo stirrer.
I pour clockwise 1-2cms from the edge of the Kalita.
Pour a further 100g of water, attempting as slow a pour as possible continuous.
At 1.30 I pour the remaining 100g in a anti-clockwise motion again continuous and slow.
I’m aiming for 2.30-3.00 for water to filter.
Could wait up 3-4 minutes for remaining water to filter to avoid wasting brew, however at 4.00 I remove the Kalita to try to avoid over extraction. Use as feedback to dial in for next brew.
