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.

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.

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

Yet another filter thread...
CharcoalRoaster
So apparently my stack of Melitta filters has been exhausted and I'm temporarily stuck with Walmart ones for my freshly roasted Ethiopia Hambela.

Is the difference simply quality?

Am I going to regret using these?!
BenKeith
Put one in your mouth and just let it sit there a minute or chew on it a little. If you get that funky paper taste, it's probably going to add that same flavor to your coffee. Some say to rinse them with hot water. That might help but I find I still get that flavor in my coffee
CharcoalRoaster
Hahaha ok, I'll give it a shot. Have you ever done a side-by-side taste test like that between filter brands?
BenKeith
On the rare occasion I make coffee in the Bunn I use Melitta filters. I've never tried any other brand natural if that was a Walmart brand natural filter.
I don't think I've used a white filter that does not give off that bad flavor.
I mainly use my AeroPress so don't have much of a choice on what filter I use, so I just flush a lot of hot water through them. At least they are very small.

There are definitely differences in the finished cup from various filters. I've never used Walmart brand before but from all the ones I've used my preference is for Filtropia. I did some side by side blind tastes and that was my preference with Melitta second. I found that the Filtropia toned down any slight bitterness from fines
