Fellow Stagg [XF] Pour-Over Method
What are the perks of using a Pour Over?
Let’s be honest. Getting motivated in the morning can be a challenge unless there is coffee. The morning ritual most commonly involves grinding up fresh coffee, loading up the coffee maker, and pressing a button especially when there is a rush to get the day started. Try establishing a weekend routine by slowing down and taking a little extra time to enjoy the process. Making a pour over might seem like more work, but it doesn't take much more time than an auto drip maker. Reserve a little patience and be present when making a pour over.
There are different styles and models of pour over units out there, but we find the Fellow Stagg XF pour over set to be forgiving for a novice pour over maker. Most designs have a cone like shape which funnels and directs the water channel in a certain direction. The flat bottom design of the Fellow however allows just a little more hang time for the water to extract coffee goodness before gravity draws down the brew to the carafe or cup. Allow the anticipation of tasting good coffee bloom while making a pour over. Don’t just take our word for it though. Start with the following recipe to kick off your pour over coffee adventure in your own home.
What You'll Need

Let's Get Started
Bring your water to a boil. We like to use our Fellow Electric Stagg EKG Kettle, but you can use whatever you have on hand.
- After the bloom, add water until the scale reads 200 g
- At the 1:20 mark add 100 g of water
- At the 1:50 mark add 100 g of water
- At the 2:20 mark add the final 100g of water. Allow the brewed coffee to draw into the carafe.
