5 Tips for Crafting the Perfect Pour-Over

Recommended tools and techniques for brewing delicious pour-over coffee at home.


Not Too Sweet came to life in 2018 within the cozy confines of my studio apartment. A vintage bar cart transformed a once overlooked kitchen corner into my very first home bar. It was there in my backyard, that friends came together, sharing in the delight of vinegar-poached chicken and sipping on caipirinhas. From those humble beginnings, countless drinks were mixed, and myriad of dinners hosted. Just as I once reveled in the simplicity of roasting food over an open flame, or the unparalleled joy of biting into a fresh fig for the first time, Not Too Sweet has become a canvas for me to share my cherished recipes, insights, and explorations.
