Pour-Over Coffee Is So Good (and So Popular) The advantage of the drip method of brewing is that the hot water passes slowly passes through the grounds, extracting more flavor and aroma components; with hand-pouring, it's easier to control the water temperature and the pour rate.
Pourover coffee starts with (freshly) ground coffee, a filter, and a filter holder, often called a 'pourover dripper.'
At the most basic level, pourover brewing involves pouring water over and through the grounds to extract the coffee flavors into your cup or serving vessel.
The Chemex filters are much more densely woven than traditional coffee filters.
They help to regulate the flow of coffee while removing much of the body and coffee oils.
The filter slows down the flow of water passed through it, resulting in a better developed flavor.
The filters used for the pour over method of coffee brewing help to trap oily substances in coffee called diterpenes.
According to Harvard Health Publishing, a November 2015 study in Circulation found that coffee consumption was associated with an 8% to 15% reduction in the risk of death (with larger reductions among those with higher coffee consumption). Other studies have found that coffee drinkers may have a reduced risk of
* cardiovascular disease (including heart attack, heart failure, and stroke)
* type 2 diabetes
