    The Recipe:

    • 6 Cup Chemex
    • 40g/ ~ 6 Tbsp coffee

    • Makes 2 servings

    The Brew:

    • Place paper filter in Chemex and rinse with hot water, dump water.
    • Add ground coffee to filter, shake to level grounds.
    • Place Chemex on scale and tare (reset weight to zero).
    • Start timer and pour hot water over grounds in a slow circular motion until scale reads 100 grams.
    • Allow grounds to fully saturate with water for ~30 seconds. Optional: use a tool to gently stir the slurry.
    • At 0:30 – add 180g of water (280g total) in same circular motion.
    • At 1:30 – add 180g of water (460g total) in same circular motion.
    • At 2:30 – add 180g of water (640g total) in same circular motion.
    • Once you’ve reached 640 grams, you’re done pouring. When the coffee finishes dripping, it’s ready!
    • Aim for the entire brewing process to complete in 4:30-5 minutes.
    • If your brew time is shorter, grind finer next time. If it’s longer, grind coarser. Experiment, have fun… it’s just coffee!
