This iconic hour-glassed shaped carafe is known to brew a delicate and aromatic coffee. The simplicity of its design mirrors the simplicity of the coffee's preparation.

NECESSITIES

STEP 1

We recommend a 1:15 coffee to water ratio for the optimal extraction of flavor. Adjust to your taste and type of coffee.

* Brew Time : 3-4 Mins

* 25 grams of fresh whole bean coffee

* Ginder : Digital Scale  :  Timer

* Chemex carafe  &   Chemex Filters

* Kettle  :  375 grams of water

PREPERATION

STEP 2

* Fill your kettle and set to boil.

* Weigh and grind coffee  to a sea salt-like coarseness.

* Place the filter into the top compartment of the Chemex with the 3-layered side facing the spout.  This will allow air to escape during the brew process. 

*  Rinse filter with warm water to prevent any paper taste from affecting the brew.

* Dispose of the rinse water and ensure the filter remains securely in place.

BREWING

STEP 3

* Place your filter-rinsed Chemex, on the scale and tare to zero.

* Add ground coffee  into the rinsed filter and flatten the coffee bed for an even pour.

* Start timer. Pour twice as much water as coffee [i.e, 25g coffee x 2 = 50g water] over the coffee grounds. Pour gently in a circular motion to evenly saturate the grounds.

* In under 60 seconds, the coffee begins to “bloom” and de-gas. Allow 40–55 seconds for this important step.

SERVE

STEP 4

* After a minute, pour about 100 grams of water in a clockwise direction starting with the center of the Chemex and outwards to the edge of the coffee.  Let coffee drip till for about 1.30 mins 

* Repeat the above process and add water in two stages (about 100g at a time) until you reach the desired final brew weight.

* Allow the water to drip through the grounds entirely.

* Serve & enjoy
