Coffee Lingo: Pourover

A Pourover: (n.) when coffee lets gravity do the work.

Water is poured over coffee grounds and flows through them into a mug or glass. Depending on how fast you pour it (and whether you’ve mastered the slow, steady, circling pour), the water has time to extract just the right amount of coffee before draining out. Pourover brewers come in what feels like infinite variations, from the classic Chemex to the sultry Silvertons, and some pourover brewers rest conveniently on top of your cup, meaning easy clean up and fewer dishes.

Pro tip for pourovers: warm up the glass or mug you’re using to catch the coffee so it doesn’t cool your brew down before you get to drink it.
