Brew Guide: Chemex

Brew Guide: Chemex

Chemex is an ideal brewer for creating a crisp and clean flavor profile for 2-3 people to share

What you will need: Gooseneck Kettle, Chemex and Filters, Scale, 50g Coffee, 800g Filtered Water at 205F, 100g Hot Rinse Water

First, place filter into chemex with 3-sided corner covering the chemex spout

Pour 100g of Hot water to rinse the filter and preheat the brewing system. Discard water from the server.

Grind coffee to a medium-coarse setting, about the consistency of rock salt.

Add coffee grounds to the cone and gently level the brewbed using a side-to-side motion.

Start your timer and pour 100g of water over the dry grounds in a spiral motion. Be sure to saturate all grounds evenly.

Wait for the coffee to Bloom for 00:15-00:45, until the coffee stops bubbling and expanding

Add 300g of water over the next minute using slow circular motions paying close attention to pour over the entire bed evenly, but not over the paper filter. The water should fall straight down from the tip of the gooseneck.

Let drain for 00:15 before adding another 200g of water over another 01:00.

When the brew slows to small drips, remove the filter and discard the spent grounds. Ideally, this should take between 04:00 - 06:00
