6 Cup Chemex
Mini SlimPro Grinder
Hario V60 Scale with Timer
250g Yirgacheffee Coffee from Ethiopia – Select Whole Bean or Ground
Place the Chemex brewer on the scale
Place Chemex filter in place with the three-sided portion of the filter placed over the pouring spout
Rinse filter with hot water, discard water
Place 44g of medium-to-coarse ground coffee in bottom of filter and tare the scale
Begin to pour a small amount of water onto the coffee bed, about two to three times the weight of the ground coffee (80g-90g), or just enough to fully cover and saturate the coffee evenly. Stir to ensure the entire bed is evenly saturated.
Wait 30-45 seconds to allow the ground coffee to release CO2.
Your second pour should provide half of the total brew water in 20-30 seconds. Make sure all of the grounds are saturated and agitated. Continue to add water in ~100g increments as coffee passes through the filter. There is a bump on the outside glass carafe that shows the fill line.
TIP: Make sure all coffee is off the edges of the filter. Pour in a controlled spiral motion and then slowly add water to the center of the bed to induce agitation of the coffee bed below.
Wait for the coffee to finish dripping, remove filter, swirl, pour, enjoy!
The Chemex should brew from start to finish in about 4 minutes and 30 seconds. If it takes much longer than that, coarsen your grind size; if it brews much faster than that, make the grind size smaller. Some coffees may extract better with more water (a lower brew ratio) or with less (a higher brew ratio), so play with these parameters to suit your personal tastes.
