How To Make An Iced Pourover (Flash Brew)

We get it. Nothing beats iced coffee in the summertime!

But brewing a cup of hot coffee and pouring it over ice just isn't the same.

In this guide, we are going to give you a repeatable way for making a refreshing iced pourover so you can sweat less and sip more enjoyably!

What You Need

  • 25 grams of coffee (we're using Long Daze Blend)
  • 268 grams of water
  • 132 grams of ice
  • Kalita Wave 185 dripper
  • Grinder
  • Scale


Step 1. - Measure/Grind

Measure out 25 grams of coffee and grind a step or two finer than you normally would. For a Baratza Encore, we grind at setting 16 for this.


Step 2. - Presoak

Presoak your filter just like you normally would. This helps to ensure that your coffee won't taste like paper!


Step 3. - Add Ice

Place your glass server on the scale and TARE the scale. When the scale reads '0', add 132(ish) grams of ice.


Step 4. - Add Coffee

Place your dripper back on top of the glass server and add your ground coffee into it.


Step 5. - Start Brewing!

Begin by pressing TARE on your scale again so that all reads '0'. Start your timer and slowly pour 50 grams of water onto your grounds.


Step 6. - Repeat

At :30, pour again slowly until your scale reads 150 grams.

At 1:00, pour again until your scale reads 200 grams. 

At 1:30, pour finally until your scale reads 268 grams.


Step 7. - Finish & Enjoy!

Finish pouring around 1:45

Total brew time should be around 2:30-2:45.

All that's left now is to pour your brew over a cold glass of ice!

Flash brewing like this is really good for bright, fruity coffees because it locks in some of those great flavors in ways that other methods of cold coffee don't.

A good one drinks more like an iced tea!

We really like to use our Long Daze Cold Brew Blend for these drinks.

Hope this helps you, now go beat the heat!
