Chemex

Step 1

This recipe is ideal for 2 people. We will be using 30g of coffee to 500g of water.
The grind coarseness for this method is a bit coarser than table salt.

Our 500g of water needs to be at 93 degrees Celsius.


Step 2

Place the Chemex Filter into your Chemex.

First pre-wet the filter to get rid of any paper taste.

Pour out this excess water through the spout.


Step 3

Pour the ground coffee into the Chemex Filter. Make sure the coffee is spread evenly.


Step 4

For this method we will be doing 3 pours.

The first one will be starting from the centre.


Continue the other pours gently outwards. We recommend not to pour water into the sides of the filter.


Step 5

Pour the water in a circular pattern from the center.

Start with 60 g of water and stir to make sure all coffee is covered, then let it bloom for 30 seconds.


Step 6

Pour a second time until 1 minute on the timer.

Wait 15-20 seconds before doing your third and final pour.

Finally pour up to the 500g mark, this should be at around 1 minute 50 seconds.


Step 7

Wait until the water has dripped through, it should be about 3-4 minutes. Remove the filter, give the Chemex a swirl, pour and enjoy!
