The Chemex is a manual pour over method of brewing coffee. It was invented in 1941 by Peter Schlumbohm. The Chemex brews a smooth coffee without imparting any flavours of its own.

Let's get to brewing...

water to coffee ratio 16:1

  1. Heat water (205 degrees).
  2. Weigh and grind coffee beans.
  3. Place filter in Chemex and wet with hot water. Dispose of rinse water.
  4. Add grinds to filter
  5. “Bloom” = wet grinds with first pour. Roughly 70-100 g of water. Goal is to wet all grinds.
  6. Bloom ends around 45 seconds after pour started.
  7. Continue adding water until final weight is reached, making sure not to over flow filter and making sure to pour evenly around grinds (**don’t pour all water directly into centre or your extraction won’t be even**).
  8. Once fully drained dispose of the grinds and pour into mugs.
