Tips for brewing better

brew guide - Chemex

This is a brewing method where form meets function. It is as loved for its looks as for the way it brews coffee. Chemex is the only way to brew coffee directly into the same decanter in which it will later be served. When not in use, the Chemex can double as a vase or a water pitcher.

6 cups
45 g coffee
750 g water
Brewing time: 4-5 minutes

1. RINSE THE FILTER – This helps eliminate any flavoring from the paper, while also heating the pot. Don’t forget to empty the water from the bottom of the pot - a common rookie mistake.

2. ADD 45 GRAMS OF COARSELY GROUND COFFEE – And even it out slightly before brewing. Aways use freshly ground beans, and we suggest you invest in a grinder so that the coffee can be ground immediately before brewing. Determine the correct amount using a digital scale.

3. ADD A LITTLE WATER FOR MOISTURE – Place your Chemex on the scale and reset it before starting. Make sure the water is at the correct temperature, about 95°C. Then add 100 grams of water. Being thorough will improve the flavor, smoothness, and all-round experience of your coffee

4. STIR THE COFFEE – It’s just like making hot chocolate: mixing coco directly with all of the milk makes it lumpy. But mixing just half of the milk, stirring, and adding the rest later dissolves the coco. That is what we are looking for here. 

5. FILL WITH WATER TO THE EDGE – Add water with a circular motion to a total of 400 grams, including the first 100 grams you used in the previous step. Pour in a circle to maximize turbulence and bring out all of the flavors.

6. LET THE WATER ALMOST DRIP THROUGH – For maximum control, coffee should be brewed evenly without stopping. Add more water as soon as you can almost see the coffee grounds crown the water.

7. ADD THE REST OF THE WATER – Add the remaining 300 grams of water, to a total of 750 grams, in a circular motion. Stir the coffee using a spoon as soon as you spot the grounds under the surface of the water. Stir in the same direction as you poured the water.
