  • Freshly roasted coffee
  • Chemex and filter papers
  • Grinder
  • Kettle, scale and timer
  • Coffee cups


  • Coffee: 45 g (4 cups) / Ratio 1:16
  • Grind size: Medium coarse ground
  • Water: 720 ml of water at 92ºC
  • Brew time: 4:00 min


  • Boil water and place the special filter in the chemex (with the multiple fold on the spout side) and preheat it with the hot water to eliminate the paper taste.  
  • Grind 45 g of your specialty coffee on a medium coarse filter setting.
  • Don’t forget to throw away the preheated water. Place the Chemex on the scale and add the coffee to the filter, distributing it evenly.
  • Once the timer starts, pour 200 ml of water in a circular movement and let the coffee bloom for 30 seconds to degas it.
  • Slowly pour the remaining water from the center (approximately 520 ml) and make circles, pouring  until reaching 1 centimeter from the rim.
  • Wait until all the water seeps at minute 4 and then pull the filter out completely.
  • Swirl the Chemex a little and serve your cups with a delicious brewed coffee.
