Pour over - Gesha Natural Finca Las Nubes, Pereira - Colombia
Dripping - Pour over method
Pour over accentuates intricate flavors when compared to other brewing methods. This makes it a popular choice for specialty coffees, since it allows the flavors and aromas to shine.
Give the coffee the time to bloom. The bloom is the quick bubbling up of water that happens when you first pour. It is caused by the degassing of carbon dioxide that is built up in the roasting process. Light roasts and fresh coffee are likely to produce a big bloom because they usually contain more gasses.
Carbon dioxide can prevent even extraction because it repels water, and the disturbed grounds can sit at different heights.
Let the gasses escape and improve your extraction by giving 30 to 40 seconds after your first pour.
