How to make Chemex

Step 1: PREP

  • Heat water
  • Rinse filter in Chemex (quite well) and discard water, replace filter
    (positioning the three folds toward the spout)
  • Weigh 67g coffee (Grab a tin can filled with beans off the container wall - it's pre-measured)
  • Fill kettles and heat water

Step 2: SETUP

  • Grind coffee
  • Weigh 65g coffee into chemex
  • Create divot in bed and tare scale
  • Just before boiling, remove kettle and let water settle

Step 3: BLOOM

  • Tare scale
  • Saturate coffee with 120g of water
  • Let bloom for ~30 seconds

Step 4: BREW

  • Pouring slowly in a spiral from the center, add enough water to raise slurry about
    halfway up the cone -after first pour, stir the slurry to ensure full saturation
  • Continue adding water slowly in stages, submerging the crust as you go and
    letting the slurry drop before adding water to bring it back to the same level.
  • After crust has dissipated, pour into center of chemex
  • Try to add all water by 3:00
  • Once you’ve add 1100g water, give it a final stir and let drain (aiming for flat or
    slightly domed bed).
