Chemex Coffee Making
The Chemex is a great machine for people who want to brew clean, refined and well-rounded coffee while ensuring that they retain the distinctive aromas and rich, delicious taste. The standard-sized Chemex brewer makes six cups of coffee, or two average-sized mugs, and takes less than four minutes to complete your brew, from bean to cup.
To ensure you get the best taste, grind your beans using a burr coffee grinder before you brew them. This will stop the coffee from oxidizing and losing its flavour. Boil enough water to make the amount of coffee you are aiming for, and place the filter into the brewing jug, with the multi-layered side pointing towards the spout of the jug. You don’t need to re-boil the water after doing this as ideally the water should have been off the boil, cooling, for 30 seconds or slightly longer by this point.
Pour the hot water slowly around the coffee filter so that the inside of the paper is damp, then pour out that water, carefully, keeping the filter in place. Dampening the filter paper like this will ensure that your coffee does not develop a “papery” flavour.
Add your grounds (around 20g per mug is a good rule of thumb) to the filter, and shake the paper gently so that they settle. Then, pour a little water over the grounds so that they’re wet, and let the water soak into the coffee. The coffee grounds should “bloom”, producing some lovely aromas and releasing any trapped gasses. After 45 seconds, start pouring the rest of the water into your grounds, slowly and at a steady pace. You should pause only if the water level reaches the top of the filter. The pouring process should take no more than four minutes – if it takes longer, use a coarser setting next time you grind your beans.
