Chemex

Chemex is a pour-over method, which means that the water passes through a bed of coffee and a filter, normally made out of paper. In contrast to say a French Press, the Chemex will give you a remarkably clean cup of coffee. Chemex paper filters are 20-30% heavier than other filters so they retain more of the suspended oils during the brewing process and solids cannot pass through the filter.

What you will need:
  • Freshly roasted Centurion Coffee
  • Chemex
  • Kettle
  • Scale
  • Timer
  • Mugs
Brew Guide: (2 Cups)
  • Grind – 30g coffee (Medium coarse)
  • Water – 510g (200F and 30s off boil)
  • Ratio – 1:17
  • Total Time – 4 minutes (no longer than 6 minutes)
Method:

Step 1: Fold filter according to package directions, place into Chemex (thick side on the spout) and rinse with hot water, once warmed, dump out the water.

Step 2: Weigh and measure your coffee according to the number of servings you desire. Grind the coffee slightly Coarser than Auto drip.

Step 3: Add ground coffee to the Chemex, place on scale and tare (clear) scale.

Step 4: Pour 75g of hot water in a slow circular pattern to the coffee grounds to get all the grinds wet, use the stir stick to stir water and grinds together.

Step 5: Once there is a crust on top of the coffee grinds, pour slowly in circles again to break the crust up. Add another 200g of water (total 275g).

Step 6: Wait until the water level drops by ½-inch, then add in remaining water (235g of water, to bring the total weight up to 510g)

Step 7: The entire pouring process should take place in 3 – 3.5 mins. Wait for it to finish filtering, grab the filter and place in the compost.

Step 8: Allow coffee to fully draw down for a total brew time of 4 mins.

Pour into the cup and enjoy!
