How to Make Pour Over Coffee

Ever wondered how to make Pour Over Coffee? Or just wondering what it is?

I used to have a coffee maker. After many failed attempts at making coffee in it, I gave it away. We broke up. We’re both better off. I’ll admit, it was totally me, not the coffee maker.

I found a new love.

I found my make-coffee-at-home soul mate in Pour Over Coffee. It’s fancy coffee talk for “one cup of coffee at a time with a filter that sits on top of your cup”. It’s so simple, you might be amazed. And the coffee you drink is super fresh. Because you just made it. Right now. And also, now.
