Hario V60 Fretta Ratio Chart

The Hario V60 Fretta Iced Coffee Maker comes in one size, but gives you flexibility in terms of yield between 2 and 4 cups. We use it to make 4 cups here.

Qty. Ice Coffee Water
2 cups 120 g 50 g (7 tbsp) 230 g (8 oz)
3 cups 150 g 75 g (10 tbsp) 295 g (10 oz)
4 cups 200 g 100 g (14 tbsp) 460 g (16 oz)

Step 1

Place the ice chamber inside the glass carafe. Place the black dispersion filter on top of the ice chamber and the V60 Cone on top of that.

Heat your water to about 200℉ (93℃). Or, simply bring your water to a boil and then let it sit off the heat for 30 seconds.

Place your filter in the V60 Cone, folded along the edges. Rinse filter with hot water to get rid of any paper taste. Wait, I thought we were making iced coffee?! Stay tuned.

Step 2

Measure 100 g (14 tbsp) of coffee and grind to a medium-fine grind, about the consistency of Kosher salt.

Step 3

Pour coffee grinds into the V60. Give it a few shakes to get everything settled and level in the filter.

Step 4

Pour the water evenly, starting in the center and circling outward, only using about half the total water required for the amount of coffee you’re making. For 4 cups, that’s 235 g (8 oz). Start your timer. Let it sit for about 30 seconds, allowing the coffee to bloom and release its trapped gasses.

Step 5

Continue pouring slowly from the center and circling around the outside until you’ve reached the right water mark level (as indicated on the carafe). Take care not to pour water directly on the paper filter.

Watch the ice melt as the brewed coffee disperses throughout the chamber. Once you’ve used all your water, use the handle to gently shake the carafe and melt any remaining ice.

Step 6

Find your favorite mug or glass and add ice, as needed. Kick your heels up, and enjoy that little iced paradise in a cup. Happy brewing!
