Pour Over Coffee: How To Use A Gooseneck Pouring Kettle

Pour Over coffee with a Gooseneck Pouring Kettle is a stripped-back method inspired by Japanese techniques. It’s no wonder this style of coffee has gained popularity, as it taps perfectly into current trends of mindfulness and an ever-increasing sophistication of coffee which brings with it a continuing search for processes that capture maximum flavour. This almost-ceremonial coffee process is a slow-brew technique that will cultivate fully-developed flavour and body.

In this Pour Over method, coffee grounds are added to a filter and placed over a carafe – preferably glass for maximum theatrical impact. Water brought to the boil is decanted into a Gooseneck Pouring Kettle and steadily poured over the coffee grounds. The beauty of this method is, rather than flooding the filter, a measured amount of water is used over several minutes.

The narrow and curved spout controls water flow over the coffee grounds to manage pouring speed as well as accuracy. The idea is to pour in steady spirals to ensure an even saturation of the grounds for a balanced and flavourful brew. Decanting boiling water into the kettle will also manage the temperature to prevent scalding the coffee grounds and impairing the taste. The water drips into the carafe in a slow and precise process that will make every sip of coffee rich with complex flavours.

Today experience is everything: being mindful and taking the time to enjoy and savour every moment is key. Coffee is a chance to slow down, be in control and have a quality moment in the chaotic pace of contemporary life. It is no surprise then that Pour Over coffee has increased in its desirability, offering this moment and capturing the harmonious nature of this Japanese coffee ritual.
