The Hario V60 coffee maker is a coffee maker appliance designed by Hario, a Japanese company specializing in the manufacture of coffee glass. The V60 was introduced in 2005 and has become popular for its unique brewing method which allows precise control of water temperature and brewing time. The coffee maker is characterized by its spiral shape which allows the water to flow quickly, creating a full-bodied coffee rich in aromas. The V60 is made of ceramic, glass or stainless steel, and is compatible with paper or stainless steel filters.
The method of brewing the V60 is to place the filter in the portafilter, add ground coffee, pour hot water gently over the coffee to moisten, then slowly pour out the remaining water. The key to getting great coffee from the V60 is using the right amount of coffee, proper water temperature, and optimal brewing time. The V60 is often used for barista competitions for its ability to bring out the aromas and flavors of each type of coffee.
