Coffee preparation techniques besides espresso like pourover.

When I have time to relax and make a pour-over I use a Chemex almost always.
But usually I just want a fast cup and my One-cup Moccamaster never lets me down.
I admit that my pour-over technique is spotty. The Moccamaster is more consistent than I can ever be and most of the time it makes better coffee than I can manually.

I recorded my morning brew's slurry temp on the MM , and the slurry temp was between 198F - 201F.
I believe my v60 brews can only get up to 190F, that's with preheating the plastic brewer and using 99C water from my stagg EKG +.

The V60 is so versatile, and fun, but the MM keeps working like a top, and once you get it dialed in, the coffee is excellent

How much coffee and water did you use for that result? And do you do any fiddling with it while it's brewing?

Hello,
It was. Liter brew that I got that temperature reading from on the MM.

I use a "steep and release water first then coffee",
Riffing off the "Hoffman clever" video, I have the model that has a valve on the bottom of the basket that closes and opens as you put the carafe on the hot plate. I turn the MM on and fill the basket half way with water then I add my coffee, stir and turn machine off for a bloom.
Put the carafe back in to drain the bloom water in the basket, then I turn on the machine, and let it do it's thing.
When it's done with the water, I give the slurry a stir, and I pull the carafe out to stop the flow out of the basket, and I let the grounds settle for 30sec- minute then I put the pot back in to do the draw down.

Let me know if you have any questions.
