Matt Perger : The V60 pour over method

Hario V60 method

Matt Perger doesn’t know this but he’s one of the many reasons I got into speciality coffee and is something of an inspirational figure…man crush alert no homo.

I say this because the first filter brew type I ever used was a Hario V60, which I get is fairly common among home coffee connoisseurs. However, it was this V60 recipe that not only drew me into speciality coffee, but also consider a business around it. To this day I still consider his method a great base filter method for anyone getting into filter coffee and one I use as standard practice when comparing coffees that later end up on our shelves.


Matt Perger has a reputation as a cutting edge Barista and leading coffee industry expert. He gained prestige winning the World Brewers Cup in 2012. Furthermore making 2nd and 3rd place in 2 World Barista Championships. On top of this he’s known not just for his Barista skills but as someone who’s pushed the boundaries of speciality coffee craft and the man who started the EK43 grinder trend that seems to be a staple in many speciality coffee shops worldwide.

Now without further a do, I present Matt Pergers Hario V60 method in all its glory. Includes a video with the main man in action too.
