Beehouse Brew Guide

Beehouse Pour Over Brew Guide


Brewing on the Beehouse is a super easy and relatively quick way to enjoy a damn fine cup of drip coffee. These steps have been simplified over time to help you get to that perfect cup without helping you get to that anxiety attack first.


What you’ll need

  • A Beehouse Pour Over
  • A #2 or #4 filter (the only difference is the height of the filter, so don’t worry if         it’s one or the other.).
  • 20 grams of coffee
  • Some water (195-209 F)
  • Something to brew into

  • Step One

    • Weigh and grind 20 grams of your favorite coffee and grind for auto drip.

    Step Two

    • Place brewer onto decanter.
    • Pre-soak your filter
      • Place filter into brewer and pour some hot water over it. Try to hit all of the dry spots.
      • Once you’ve done that and the water has passed through, dump that water.
      • After you’ve discarded the water, place your brewer back onto your decanter.

    Step Three

    • Pour your coffee into the filter.
    • Pull up the stopwatch on your phone/ grab a kitchen timer.
      • You’ll be starting your timer from zero.

    Step Four

    • First pour
      • Start your timer and start your pour at the same time.
      • Pour up to 83 grams and stir.
        • Your first pour should be done by 20 seconds.

    Step Five

    • Second Pour
      • Pour another 83 grams bringing your water weight to 166 grams
        • You should be done pouring by about 50 seconds.

    Step Six

    • Last Pour
      • At 1 minute mark, pour another 166 grams of coffee bringing your total weight to 332.

    Step Seven

    • Chill out and wait for that coffee to draw out.
      • Coffee should be done brewing by > 3:15.

    Recap

    • Soak your filter
    • Pour in your 20 grams of coffee
    • Start your stopwatch and your pour at the same time.
    • Pour up to 83 grams of water and stir (0-20 seconds)
    • At 30 second mark, start your second pour. Pour another 83 grams bringing your water weigh up to 166. (30-50 seconds)
    • At 1 minute mark, pour another 166 grams of water bringing your total water weight up to 332 grams.
    • Wait for your coffee to drop out.
    • That’s it!

    • Pour in your 24 grams of coffee
    • Start your stopwatch (from zero) and your pour at the same time.
    • Pour up to 50 grams of water and stir (0-20 seconds)

    • Once your coffee is done brewing, use another decanter (preferably a glass pitcher) and weigh out your yield. Match that weight with ice and stir.
      • Slacker Tip: Assume a 25% loss and weigh 150 grams of ice.
    • Once you’ve stirred until your coffee is cooled down, pour over ice and enjoy.
