3 Cup Chemex

Chemex may seem brand new, but it has been around since the 1940’s. Similarly to the Japanese V60, the Chemex brings the worlds of Chemistry and Coffee together. The clever and beautiful design produces a smooth, unique cup while also sitting pretty in your kitchen.

This size produces a 1-3 cups of joe, perfect for a lazy Sunday with nothing but yourself and a great book.

Only specific Chemex filters work with this bad boy, but they’re extremely clever!

Brew Guides

What you need:
3 Cup Chemex
One 3 Cup Chemex Filter Paper
25g (3 Tablespoons) of medium ground coffee.
400 ml of hot water just off the boil (about 96°C)

Step 1: Prep and preheat
Place the Chemex Filter in the brewer with single fold away from the spout and multiple folds lined up against the spout. Rinse the filter with hot water to get a nice even seal all the way around. This preheats the brewer and gets rid of any paper flavor from the filter. Dump the rinse water and fold the filter toward the spout to reinforce this area.

Step 2: Weigh and grind coffee
Add your coffee, ground kind of like sea salt. Center the coffee in your brewer and zero out the scale.

Step 3: Saturate grounds
Start the timer when you add the hot water. Pour until all the grounds are saturated or until you reach about 50g. Stir with a chopstick or spoon to make sure there are no dry clumps.

Step 4: Add more water
At :45, start the second pour, making sure to reintegrate the coffee and water. Pour with a wiggling motion, then a gentle spiral until the volume reaches about a fingertip down from the top of the rim or g of water. Pour over the dark spots and avoid the light ones.

Step 5: Fill to the top
At 1:45, fill the brewer flush to the top or about 400g of water

Step 6: Wait for it to brew
At 4:00, you should be pretty close to volume.. Lift the filter. It’s okay to hover for a couple of seconds to make sure you have enough volume. Then pull the filter out completely and let it drain into the sink.
