How to make the Chemex perfect coffee: Filter Drip method
- Open the Chemex Coffee Filter into a cone. One side should have three layers. Place the cone in the top of your coffeemaker with the thick portion toward the pouring spout.
- Using only REGULAR or MEDIUM GRIND coffee only, put one rounded tablespoon of coffee per 5 oz. cup into the filter cone. If you prefer stronger coffee use more; there is never any bitterness in coffee brewed using the Chemex method.
- When the water is boiling, remove it from the heat until it stops boiling vigorously. It should now be at about 200°F, a perfect brewing temperature. Pour a small amount of water over the coffee grounds, just enough to wet them without floating. This is important because it allows the grounds to "bloom," so the desirable coffee elements can be released.
- After this first wetting simply pour more water, soaking the grounds each time, but keeping the water level well below the top of the coffeemaker. Once the desired amount of coffee is brewed, dispose of the spent grounds by lifting the filter out of the coffeemaker. And that's it. You are now ready to enjoy a perfect cup of coffee.
Tea brewing instructions: Follow the instructions for brewing coffee. In place of coffee, measure in your favorite loose tea, one level teaspoon for each cup.
*Do not place coffeemaker directly on electric coils. Always use wire grid under your Chemex Coffeemaker. Use of a wire grid is not necessary for gas range or glass top range. Always use low temperature setting to keep the coffee warm (boiling destroys flavor).
