Hi all,

I've been home roasting (a little), grinding and making pour overs for a bit now, and I'm considering (after seeing too many beautiful porn-overs) buying the Hario V60.  I was wondering though if people thought there was much of a benefit to getting the 01 vs the 02 size.  For the most part I'm making pour overs for myself, but occasionally I make coffee for one or two others.  Because of this I was going to go with the 01 instead of the 02.  Would I have to finagle my mass of grinds depending on which I get, and would the 01 and 02 both be able to make me 2, 10 oz cups of coffee? ( I tend to use about 18-20 g for about 280-300g of water [about 10 oz]).

I read on another post here that, depending on the size v60 they were using, they were altering their grind.  Do you others seem to have a similar experience of needing to change your grind depending on the size? Also how does one pour for two people affect the grind used (presumably should be coarser, but it drastically larger or a relatively small increase in grain size?)?


I'm also wondering what filters ya'll would recommend.  I was thinking of just going with the hario filters as intended, but if there are others that work well, I'd love to hear.

Thank you all for your help!

I own and have used both sized V60s. With the 01, your max brew size is about 400ml of water. It's the perfect dripper for a single 10oz cup. The V60 02 will handle everything larger. You can make 10oz cups in the smaller one, but it might be just a touch more finicky. Overall, both are great and the 02 woul work if you plan on making more than 12oz at a time.

For filters, you can use Melitta #4s for the 02 and #2 for the 01. There is a thread on here that describes how to fold them to make it happen. I use both Hario and Melitta filters. Just depends what I have on hand, although I am brewing via cloth most of the time!

You should always alter your grind when increasing the amount of water used, but a 10oz cup used in both wouldnt need a different grind.

Let me know if you have other questions and happy brewing! As an aside, I recently acquired a small Beehouse and am in love with it's simplicity.
