Drip Assist Set by Pete Licata
The Drip Assist is a tool designed both for the Home Barista and professional, to improve the consistency of their coffee extraction with a Hario V60. Designed by the World Barista Champion Pete Licata, it allows the water to be distributed evenly during the V60 extraction.
Everything you want to know
One of the most important variables when making your coffee with percolation methods such as the V60, is certainly the strength and movement of the water flow on the coffee panel during extraction. Even though kettles with precision spouts are of great help, they don't guarantee a constant flow like automatic machines do.
This changes with the Drip Assist designed by Hario in collaboration with the World Barista Champion, Pete Licata. In fact, with this very supportive tool, you just have pour water into one of the two concentric circles through which the coffee grounds will be sprinkled with water in a homogeneous way.
If we pour water into the inner circle, it will distribute through the holes in the center with a flow rate of 8 gr / s, while if we pour water into the smaller holes of the outer circle, they will distribute the water more slowly with a flow rate of 3 gr / s.
For this reason, our advice is to use the inner circle with a greater flow rate, for the blooming or pre-infusion phase. Then we recommend pouring all the remaining water of the extraction into the outer part, perhaps pouring a little bit of water from time to time while pouring it into the central circle in order to give greater turbulence to the extraction.
