    Here's the video and we've put down some notes in this blog post for you to follow.

    What you need

    Here are the equipment/coffee used in the video:
    Light roast coffee: Ethiopia Haloberiti
    Kettle: KINTO POUR OVER KETTLE
    Dripper: Hario V60 Dripper 01  (available in red and white)
    Server: TORCH Coffee Server Pitchii

    Some tips to keep in mind when preparing coffee:

    - Fill the kettle with plenty of hot water.
    You'll be in better control of your pour-over. 

    - Pick a small tea spoon for agitation
    You want to be able to dig deep into the coffee bed. 

    - An iPhone and kitchen scale will do its job!
    Don't worry if you don't have a drip scale, time your brew with your phone and weigh coffee/water with a kitchen scale. 

    Let's get brewing!

    The key to producing good coffee at home is being precise with "ratio" and "time."

    With this in mind, let's start brewing. 

    Here's the recipe:

    Tips:

    1. Spend 10 seconds on each pour. 
    By pouring hot water in the fixed amount of time, your pour-over will be consistent throughout.

    2. Agitate after the first pour.
    Agitate with a tea spoon 2-3 times in order to bring our pleasant acidity.

    3. Make the second pour steady and aggressive. 
    This will bring our rich sweetness of coffee. 

    4. Make the thrid pour nice and gentle.
    The purpose of third pour onward is adjustment of concentration level. 

    5. Give it a final stir after the last pour.
    The first and final agitation will make the extraction consistent all the time.

    6. Finish at approximately 2'30.
    Remove the dripper from the server once water is no longer visible on the coffee bed.
