Basic Kalita Wave Recipe for Beginners

This is a great Kalita Wave recipe for beginners. From here, you can adjust the recipe according to roast, bean origin, and preference.
The Kalita Wave pour over is a popular and highly-regarded method of making coffee. To create a great cup of coffee with this method, there are a few key steps to follow:
1. Start by heating up your water to around 200°F. This can be done either in a kettle or on the stove.
2. Grind your coffee beans to a medium-coarse consistency. You’ll want to use about 25 grams of coffee for every 12 ounces of water.
3. Place a filter inside the Kalita Wave dripper and rinse it with hot water to get rid of any paper taste.
4. Add your ground coffee to the filter and gently shake the dripper to even out the grounds.
5. Start pouring hot water slowly in a circular motion, starting from the center and moving outwards.
6. Keep pouring until you reach your desired brew volume, usually around 12-16 ounces.
7. Wait for the coffee to finish dripping through the filter, which should take around 3-4 minutes.
8. Once the drip has stopped, remove the dripper and enjoy your delicious pour over coffee!
With the Kalita Wave method, it’s important to maintain a consistent pour rate and keep an eye on the water level in your dripper. Too much water can cause over-extraction and a bitter taste, while too little water can result in under-extraction and a weak flavor.
Overall, the Kalita Wave pour over method is a great way to make a flavorful and nuanced cup of coffee. Experiment with different coffee beans and grind sizes to find the perfect recipe for your taste preferences. Happy brewing!
