My favorite thing right now is Japanese Iced Coffee.
While I am bringing some water to a boil, I weigh out 25 grams of coffee, and grind it to a medium-fine grind (using a Hario Skerton hand burr grinder). Then I weigh out 150 grams of ice cubes in a metal cup.
I use a Hario v60 pour over to brew directly into the cup of ice. I slowly pour 50 grams of water over the coffee grounds in a small circular motion starting in the center and working my way out. I stir it, then let it sit for 30 seconds. I then pour 50 more grams using the same circular motion, and at 1 minute, I pour another 100 grams. The water finishes draining by about two minutes, I dispose of the grounds and the filter, swirl the final product around a bit, pour it into a cup with some more ice, and enjoy.
It's so delicious and refreshing on a hot summer morning in Texas.
Plus brewing completely manually has a sort of ritualistic or ceremonial aspect that is really satisfying to me. Almost as much as the final product itself.
