chemex
step
01

Pre heat and prep

Pour hot water generously around the paper filter, eliminating any paper taste and pre-heating the Chemex, then throw the water out - you only want brewed coffee in your final drink.


step
02

Water and Weight

Bring enough water to just below a boil (~200° F / ~93° C ) in order to brew the coffee and pre-heat the Chemex and weight out 32 grams of coffee and grind it medium.

step
03

Saturate

Pour just enough water to saturate the grounds evenly and start your timer! Stir with a spoon to get rid of any dry clumps.

step
04

Add more water

After 30-45 seconds, pour the remaining water continuously and evenly onto the grounds and in a circular fashion, moving inward and outward within the circle to push the grounds toward the walls. The coffee level should rise just above the grounds.

step
05

Watch and wait

By 4 mins, you should be able to see consistent walls of grounds with an even bed toward the bottom of the filter. Lift and remove the filter out completely.

06

The best part

Swirl, pour, enjoy.
