CHEMEX

Image
Step 1
Take the filter paper and fold it as shown below.
Image
Step 2
Place the filter paper in the Chemex, ensuring the triple folded portion is facing the pour spout and lays across without obstructing it.
Image
Step 3
Place the entire setup on a weighing scale. Tare the scale to zero.
Image
Step 4
Pour some warm water along the sides of the paper filter in a circular motion to make sure the filter is wet uniformly. Empty the water collected in the chemex vessel.
Image
Step 5
Pour 20 gms of ground coffee into the filter and give it a gentle shake. This will flatten the bed, allowing for a more even pour.
Image
Step 6

Starting at the bed’s center, gently pour twice the amount of water that you have coffee into your grounds (for example, 40 grams of water for 20 grams of coffee). Work your way gently outward, and avoid pouring down the sides of the filter. You’ll notice that adding this amount of water causes the coffee to expand, or “bloom.” Allow it to do so for 45–55 seconds. A solid bloom ensures an even saturation.

Image
Step 7

Pour water in a circular pattern starting in the center. Spiral out toward the edge of the slurry before spiraling your way back toward the middle. Do not pour on the filter. Your water weight should reach 280 grams.

Image
Step 8

Allow the water to drip through the grounds entirely. Enjoy your Chemex coffee!
