brew guide: chemex



A Chemex works by immersing the coffee in hot water and brewing through a filter. This creates a pure, rich flavour.

What you need...

  1. Chemex brewer
  2. Chemex filter
  3. Coffee (medium coarse grind)

Brewing Method...

  • Rinse your filter with hot water to get rid of the papery taste. Discard the water.
  • Tip in your coffee (84g will roughly make five cups)
  • First pour – bring the water to just over boiling point and pour just enough water to saturate the coffee evenly. Leave for 30 seconds, you should get little to no drips through at this point.
  • Second pour – evenly add enough water to fill the filter up to 1cm below the rim.
  • Remove the filter – once you have the desired amount of coffee, quickly remove the filter (it will drip so leave it somewhere to drain) pour into a cup and enjoy!
