The Orea coffee brewer has been my go-to pour-over device for a long time, alongside the Kalita Wave. The Orea, whose size is ideal for a one-cup pour-over, consistently brews delicious cups of coffee. I first applied my standard Kalita Wave recipe to the Orea, then later moved on to a continuous pour. This means that instead of stopping for a bloom phase, I pour all 250g of water in at once, slowly.
Below is my Orea Brewer Recipe.
15g of freshly-roasted coffee
250g of water, boiled to 97 degrees Celsius
Measure out 15g of coffee. Grind to a medium-fine consistency (22 on a Comandante, or around 40 on a Comandante with Red Clix has worked out well for me). Boil water.
Put filter paper in Orea brewer. Put the ground coffee into the filter paper.
Shake the Orea until the ground coffee is evenly distributed across the brewer.
Start a timer. Pour 250g of water slowly into the coffee. Pour in circles, starting from the centre of the brewer and moving out, then moving back to the centre.
By 1:15, you should have poured in all of your water.
Swirl the brewer lightly a few times.
Wait for the remaining coffee to drip through.
Enjoy your cup of coffee!
