Around the 1980s, with the thought: “Find a way to make the coffee taste clearer with the method of letting water flow through the coffee”, the designers of Hario designed the ancestral funnel of V60.
It is shaped like a conical tube with wire rods to support the filter paper. Coffee is poured into the paper, the paper is fixed by string and s, water is poured into the coffee in the paper and r and runs down the conical tube.
However, this design was met with opposition from the instant coffee wave (1st coffee wave) and gragradually sank into oblivion for 14 years. And if Hario’s designers had forgotten about this design and concept, we’d probably have lost an all-time dispenser. In the new wave of coffee, we have to thank Hario very much for his perseverance and timeless vision.
In 2004, Hario gave his funnel a new shape. They used the parabola y = x² to create a thifunnelel. And they call it the V60 funnel. The funnel has a 60-degree angle, a groove on the inside, and a big hole in the middle.
No more wire is needed to secure the paper, you can drop the paper straight into the hopper, pour the coffee into the hopper and pour the water. The fine particles and oily layer of the coffee have been trapped by the filter paper. You can fully enjoy a clean, clear coffee taste.
Phu V60 makes special products coffee
Clean and clear is not enough, V60 can do much more. From 2011 to 2019, up to 5 world coffee extraction champions used V60 as their brewing tool. Of course, they don’t choose tools haphazardly in such an important competition.
Along with the development of cultivation, preliminary processing, and roasting… specialty coffee has developed a lot of great flavors. And the V60 funnel is the best tool to brighten up those great flavors!
With the V60, you can use roasted coffee at a light roast level (Light roast). It is at the roasting level that coffee retains the most floral, fruity, and seductive flavors that captivate many 3rd wave coffee lovers.
