Kurasu Basic Recipe: 

  • Coffee: 14g
  • Grind size: coarse
  • Hot water: 200g (91℃)

Step by step: 

  • First pour: 0:00, +40g
  • Second pour: 0:40, +60g (Total: 100g)
  • Third pour: 1:10, +50g (Total: 150g)
  • Last pour: 1:40, +50g (Total: 200g)
  • Finish pour: Approx. 2:30


  1. Spend 10 seconds on each pour. By pouring hot water in a fixed amount of time, your pour-over will be consistent throughout.
  2. Agitate after the first pour. Agitate with a teaspoon 2-3 times in order to bring our pleasant acidity.
  3. Make the second pour steady and aggressive. This will bring the rich sweetness of the coffee.
  4. Make the third pour nice and gentle. The purpose of the third pour onward is the 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.
