I have been trying Scott Rao Hario V60 pourover this week. 1:17 and blooming with 2 parts water the first 45 seconds then splitting the rest into 2 pours. A little stirring is included. We like it.

03/04/2021 11:35 AM
My brew ratio is 1:17 (exactly 59.5 g/L). That's roughly 8.5g per 5-oz cup.

I'm looking to hire someone to teach/help me to find the best roast profile for the 3 types of coffee that grow on my farm in nicaragua. I live in LA, but but could go anywhere in so cal with my Behmor for a roasting lesson. Please contact me if you're in

When your wife thinks 30 grams for a 6 cup setting is strong, you learn to drink muddy water when you are making coffee for both of you.

02/17/2021 8:32 AM
I use a rule of thumb of 60 grams per liter. 8 cups (1 liter, 32 oz) = 60 grams, 6 cups (3/4 liter, 24 oz) = 45 grams. 10 cups = 75 grams 12 cups = 90 grams

Very nice - I hope I'm not drawn to it like a moth to a flame... I spent many hours staring at my computer during the World Barista competition.

Another competition year (2009) for the coffee related industries has come to an end.
More than likely the practice has started already in preparation for next year

Has everyone on the Home Roasters Forum enjoyed the updates of the events and some truly awesome photos & video links

Lots of sleepless but enjoyable nights went into this thread to keep you all informed as the competition unfolded.

I was especially interested in the SCAE World Cezve/Ibrik Championship.
I make the Greek/Turkish style of coffee quite frequently due to my Greek heritage

Again congratulations to the organisers of the event, also to all contestants and support staff for a truly memorable event

Signing off for now
Your friendly reporter B)
