Subject: V60 users: What is your pour over method?
 

I've been obsessed with pour-over lately. I've seen many different approaches for pour-over technique, and am trying to see if any certain method will help create the 'perfect' pour over cup. There are videos where people delicately pour droplets of water to saturate the beans without having any liquid drip into the drinking vessel (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XSyrt6WmE7M, pour begins at 3:30), and others where the grinds are saturated by a quick pour and then let rest to bloom for ~40 seconds. Some do small concentric circles in the center of the grinds throughout, and some spiral around the beans fleeing the blond and chasing the browner beans in the cone. Some pour directly on the V60's edges, others do not.

My method currently is:

Saturate all beans with 60g water (but stay away from edges) delicately, but not enough so as to keep coffee liquids from entering the cup.

Wait 45 seconds to bloom.

Small concentric circles in 60g increments, and pausing at each 60g stop until the water level begins to drop in the v60.

Stop at 350g and wait for v60 to empty, process should be finished between 2.5 and 3 minutes.

How do you make your v60? Why do you prefer your method?

Ground coffee into paper filter.
Hot water into center of bed, circles to outer edge and around, bloom, continue to pour, keeping water level to about half height or less, pour at constant rate until volume of coffee in cup is reached.
