what you'll need

6-cup Chemex

Chemex filter

Gooseneck kettle



Stir stick or wooden spoon


39g (5½ tablespoons) coffee – medium course grind

Hot water just off the boil

  • For best results start with whole bean coffee and grind with a burr grinder just before brewing.
  • Pour over and through coffee grounds – not over filter. Start in the center and pour in a steady spiral toward the outer rim or start at the outer rim and pour in a steady spiral toward the center – even extraction is the objective.
  • Relax and have fun with this – brewing coffee is not an exact science.
  • Bring water to a boil.
  • Place filter in brewer with single fold away from the spout.
  • Rinse filter with hot water. Preheat bottom chamber with a quick swirl before discarding water and moving on to Step 4.
  • Add coffee grounds (flat and level) and place brewer on scale. Tare scale to zero.
  • Start timer and add 75g of water. A quick, gentle stir will ensure the grounds are evenly saturated. Coffee will bloom if it’s fresh – rising and bubbling as it degasses.
  • At 0:45 pour with the intention of agitating the grounds and continue a slow and steady spiral pour until the water level reaches a half inch from the top rim. Maintain this level until your scale hits 600g.
  • Your coffee should be fully drained and ready by 4:00.
  • Remove filter, serve, and enjoy.
