"I love using the Chemex to brew delicious coffee at home!"

Gather your supplies
We use a 1:17 coffee-to-water ratio. Our recipe makes two, 12 oz cups of coffee.
- 45 grams of fresh-roasted, whole-bean coffee
- 750 grams of filtered hot water (200 F)
- Chemex paper filter
- Grinder (we recommend burr grinders)
- Gram scale
Place filter in Chemex and rinse with hot water, discarding when finished.
Weigh 45g coffee and grind on medium-coarse setting, like kosher salt.
Place ground coffee in filter, and shake to level.
Start a timer and add 100g of water to wet all the coffee grounds.
Wait 30 seconds and then pour water in a circular motion to 200g.
By 1:00 the water should have drained a centimeter, pour in a circular motion to 300g.
Repeat this process every 30 seconds, or as the water drains a centimeter, pouring water in a circular pattern until reaching a total weight of 750g.
The coffee should finish draining by 4:00 - 5:00.
Serve and enjoy! 🤗
