V60 Recipe | Guatemala Santa Elisa


This is one of those balanced sparkling coffees that you could drink all day. With this recipe we make it taste like pure honey, with a juicy tangerine acidity and a very long sweet finish.

  • Dose: 18 g (medium grind. 26 clicks with Comandante c40)
  • Water: 300g at 96ºC

We’ll make 5 pours in circles (from the centre to the edges) with controlled flow every 45″, seeking to saturate all the coffee during each pour.

  • Bloom 45g
  • @45s up to 120g
  • @1:30 up to 180g
  • @2:15 up to 240g
  • @3:00 up to 300g
  • @4:00 total brew time aprox.

Recipe based on results with kalita Hario V60 Ceramic, comandante c40 grinder and 150ppm water.
