Making the right Chemex Coffee requires: the right equipment, coffee grind size, water temperature, coffee amount and right brewing time.
WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
Kettle / Water 350g (200 degrees Fahrenheit)
Coffee Beans 25g ( Recommended: Medium-Coarse)
BREWING TIME: 3-4 Minutes
SERVING SIZE: 1
Water should be 200 degrees Fahrenheit at all times in the brewing process. If you do not have a thermometer wait for the water to hit a boiling point and remove from heat. Wait 30 seconds before brewing.
LET’S GET STARTED:
Using the digital scale, weigh your coffee. For this specific brewing method we recommend keeping a 1:14 ratio. This means that for every 25 grams of coffee to 350 grams of water. This will give us 10 oz Coffee or about 1 mug of Coffee.
Place the Chemex Filter in the brewer with the multiple folds lined up against the spout and the single fold away from the spout. Pour in hot water and get an even seal all the way around the filter. This helps rinse and eliminate any paper residue and order, while also pre-heating the brewer.
Discard the hot water and place the grind coffee into the filter (25 grams of medium coarse grind). Give the machine a little shake in order to distribute the coffee evenly across the flat bottom.
Zero out the scale, start the timer and pour the hot water until all the grounds are saturated or until you reach 130 g. Letting it sit and bloom for 40 seconds.
After 40 seconds, start the second pour and add the remaining 220 grams of hot water from the kettle in very slowly concentric circles. This will allow the water and coffee to reintegrate and get as much of the flavor into the decanter area.
Stop pouring once you reach 350 grams of hot water in total. Pause and stir if necessary. Now let the Coffee drain completely.
Drawdown should take about 2-3 minutes. There should be a flat base of ground Coffee left at the bottom of the brewing filter.
Remove filter with coffee grounds. Pour Coffee into a mug. Enjoy!
