Chemex Brewing Guide

The Steps

  1. Put your kettle on to boil.
  2. Place your Chemex filter in the brewer with the thick portion toward the spout.
  3. Pour about 8 ounces of hot water through the filter to rinse out any pulp flavor pre-heat the carafe. Pour the water out of the pour spout prior to brewing.
  4. Grind about 42 grams of coffee beans to a medium-coarse setting.
  5. Pre-infuse your coffee grounds with about 100 grams of hot water. The grounds will start to “bloom.” Let the blooming grounds sit for about 30-60 seconds.
  6. Finish pouring the hot water in a counterclockwise movement, being careful not to let the water level in the filter get too high, but maintaining an even water level. Remove and discard the filter.
