Coffee from a Chemex is very similar to that of a drip. Suitable for those who enjoy a clean, smooth and flavourful cup of coffee.

Step 01

Unfold the filter paper and place it into the Chemex. Ensure the triple fold portion is facing the pour spout. 

Step 02

Rinse the filter paper with hot water, then discard the water through the pour spout. 

Step 03

Add the grounded coffee beans to the filter paper (at a ratio of 50 grams of coffee to 700g of water). Aim for the coffee beans to be a medium coarse grind.

Step 04

Pre infuse the coffee by pouring 100grams of the water (95 degrees celsius) over the grounds in a circular motion and wait around 50 seconds for the coffee to bloom.

Step 05

Slowly pour the remaining water in a circular motion making sure the water level stays below the top of the coffee maker. 

Useful Tip

Aim to brew the coffee in around four minutes. If it brews too fast try a finer grind, similarly if brews too slow try using a coarser grind. Try not to pour straight onto the filter paper to avoid the coffee tasting papery.
