The Chemex produces cups of exceptionally clean, bright, and sweet coffee that are perfect for sharing with a friend.
Brew Time 5:00
Yield 24oz brewed coffee
Grind Coarse (30 on the Baratza Encore/Virtuoso/Preciso)
Ratio 50g of coffee, 800g of water
Water Temp 212°F
  1. Add ground coffee to the rinsed filter and gently shake the Chemex to settle the coffee bed.
  2. Pour and fully cover the bed with 100g of water. Start your timer.
  3. Stir the bed so that all the grounds are evenly wet. After stirring, let the coffee sit until the timer reads 45 seconds.
  4. For the next minute, pour in 350g of water in a circular motion, starting in the center and moving outwards. Once you reach the edge, circle back towards the center. Pour at an even rate.
  5. Let the water level fall, but before the coffee bed is exposed, add the remaining 350g of water, pouring in the same circular motion for one minute.
  6. When the brew is complete (about another minute), discard the grounds and swirl the coffee. Pour and enjoy.
