Hario Plastic V60-02 Dripper

Introduction

The Hario V60-02 coffee brewer is an excellent option if you're looking for a plastic brewer that allows for a continuous slow pour. It gives you more control over water dispersal and extraction. However, compared to a flat-bottom brewer like the Kalita Wave, the Hario V60-02 has less resistance and is more efficient in brewing. The design features a single large hole and spiral ribs that help with even extraction and a balanced flow. Although plastic is less conductive than steel, it's still important to maintain heat retention for optimal brewing. The plastic material of the brewer has a lower specific heat capacity, which means it requires less energy to warm up, and the insulation can help with heat loss during the brewing process.

Preparation

Before we start brewing, there are some things we need to prepare.

  • Have a kettle ready with at least 500 ml of water, a scale and a grinder.

  • We will be setting our kettle for 98℃ degrees. If you do not have an electric kettle, let your water boil and let it stand for thirty seconds.
