CHEMEX GLASS HANDLE BREWER - 1-3 CUP

35.00

The Chemex is an artistically designed coffee brewer that doubles as a carafe.  The tempered glass is durable and provides a lovely centerpiece at the breakfast table.  The small Chemex requires the half circle, Chemex bonded paper filters.

When properly brewed using a Chemex brand filter, the cup will highlight the complex acidity of a coffee.  The highly absorptive filter will hold back the oils and fine particles, producing a crisp, clean cup.  This will typically leave room for more subtle, delicate flavors to surface.

RECIPE

Parameters:

  • Coffee: 28g (≈ 3.5tbs)
  • Filtered Water: 400g at 200°-205°F (≈ 60 seconds off-boil)
  • Grind: Medium (texture of sand)
  • Time: ≈ 3:30 total

Equipment:

Preparation:

  1. Warm the brewer with hot water
  2. Wet the filter to prevent absorption *Be sure that the three-ply side is facing the spout of the brewer, otherwise the filter will cave into the groove and stop air flow through the brewer
  3. Weigh 28 grams of wholeseed coffee
  4. Grind your coffee on a medium setting that resembles the consistency of sand

Brewing:

  1. With the gooseneck kettle, gently saturate the entire coffee bed with about 40 grams of water, starting a timer as soon as you begin to pour
  2. After this 30 second pre-infusion, begin a steady pour in tight, concentric circles
  3. Once the water level has risen to the top, keep it there with a very modest stream
  4. The 400th gram of water should be poured around 1:45 (this includes the time and water used for the pre-infusion)
  5. The brewer should finish draining around 3:30
  6. Remove the filter and enjoy a personal cup
