hello all, i see that there are many ways to brew coffee in a pourover (chemex or v60). if anybody does pourover on here, i would like to know your parameters. i will also list some websites parameters. (All WFS)

I think those websites give you a great starting point. Start with a dose using a 60g/1L ratio and adjust to taste. For V60, use around a 3min brew time with a 30ish second bloom and adjust grind to hit time and good extraction. For pouring, it is easier to pulse pour and keep it near the center of the bloom. Especially with the V60, keep the pours as gentle as you can and be wary of the edges!

If there are specific questions you are looking to have answered let me know! Happy to help.

truly great coffee roasted to highlight its inherent quality

For the v60-01 I do 12g coffee and do small circular pours until I have 180g in the cup (I have a device to suspend the cone and just have the cup on the scale, it's about 210g of water going into the cone). Ending around 2:30.
