Drip recipe recommended by CROWD ROASTER Usukura [Refreshing edition]

hello everyone.
This is Usukura from CROWD ROASTER .

In this project, I would like to introduce some drip recipes that I have been using lately.

Recently, the temperature is getting higher and hotter, but I think there are many coffee lovers who want to drink hot coffee even in such times.
At times like that, I often brew and drink coffee to feel refreshed.
By brewing it refreshingly, you can drink it easily even in the hot summer.

In this article, we will introduce a drip recipe that aims for a ``refreshing taste.''

extraction ratio

Let me introduce the ratio right away.

This time, we will use the recently added "[SJBA] Brazil/San John Grande/ Bourbon /Anaerobic".
By roasting this brand lightly, you can enjoy the sweet and sour flavors of blackberry and cassis.
・Number of cups: 2 cups or more ・Amount of beans: 30g
・Extraction amount: 500cc
・Amount of hot water poured: Approximately 700cc ・Extraction time: 1 minute 45 seconds ・Water temperature: 91 degrees ・Grind: Medium coarse grind
・HARIO V60 02

Extraction procedure

① Prepare 30g of beans and grind them to a medium coarse grind.
   This time, I'm aiming for a refreshing taste, so I recommend grinding it a little coarser.    
② Prepare at least 700ml of 91 degree hot water.
   You will continue to pour hot water until the very last moment, so prepare plenty of hot water.

③ Gently and carefully pour hot water from the center. (steamed)
   Pour the hot water carefully and carefully.
   Add about 30g of hot water.

④ Steam for 40 seconds
   Normally, I often steam for about 1 minute, but for this recipe, I took less time to steam.
   There are many other factors involved, so it's hard to make a general statement, but the longer you steam it, the thicker the flavor will be.
On the other hand, if you make it shorter, it will be easier to finish the coffee with a light drinking sensation.
⑤ At the beginning of the second throw, draw a circle with thin water.
   For the second pour, slowly pour hot water in a circular motion from the center outwards, making about 3 turns.
   There may still be some gas left inside the flour, so use this first step to remove it.

⑥ After pouring about 3 times, pour hot water all at once into the center and raise the level of the hot water while stirring the powder, imagining that you are stirring the powder with the hot water you are pouring.
   Aim for a clean finish by pouring hot water all at once.
⑦ After raising the water level, pour in hot water until it reaches 500ml, which is the amount of water extracted this time.
   In order to achieve the refreshing taste that we are aiming for this time, we will continue to pour hot water until the very end.
   The more you can keep pouring hot water until the very last moment, the easier it will be to get a clean-looking finish.

⑧ Pour into a warmed cup and it's done.

What do you think?
I make minor adjustments depending on the brand, degree of roasting, and the environment that day, but basically I control everything based on this recipe.

For this recipe, we especially recommend using lightly roasted ones, carefully selected washed ones, and brands with fresh citrus flavors!

Please try it at home and let us know your opinions and impressions.
