How Nespresso Pour-Over Works

Pour-over coffee brewing involves pouring hot water into coffee grounds. It means that gravity has taken over, you will have to drain the water through the grounds, out of the bottom of the cone, and then into your mug.

Pouring over coffee is a manual process that you do, there’s no automation involved in it and there is a shift in technique changes on how the brewing works.

You will have to heat the water in a kettle. If your desire is for your water to peak brewing temperature at 205 degrees, it can process to your taste. If you like it to be a bit cooler brewed water at 195 degrees, it’s all left for you to do.

It is your responsibility to control the water pouring speed and the placement. You have full control over where you pour water and how you want it to be, which means you can ensure all the grounds are saturated. 

The speed of your pour can be changed as you need it to ensure that the grounds have the right amount of time to brew your coffee. 

There are reasons why pour-over coffee has exploded in popularity in recent years, and it’s not that people are trying to make their lives more complicated.
