The Science of the Pour Over Coffee Method

Pour over coffee originated in 1908, invented by a German entrepreneur named Melitta Bentz. But the rise of French Press knocked it off its perch. But now a resurgence of interest in the Pour Over Method has hit, during the third wave of coffee.

With the science-like precision, measurement and method used, Pour Over Coffee lovers are increasingly able to adjust and attune their brews to get beautifully balanced, and full flavoured cups.
