CHEMEX POUR-OVER METHOD

by Kristian Ritter September 05, 2021 2 min read

Brewing coffee with a Chemex is an art form that will exemplify the naturally occurring tasting notes that can be found in your favorite coffee.  If you are looking for an amazing cup of coffee, the Chemex will deliver just that.  The Chemex Coffeemaker was invented in 1941 by Dr. Peter Schlumbohm; he created his masterpiece out of non-porous, borosilicate glass and fastened with a wood collar and tie.  The beautiful thing about the Chemex is it won’t part any flavor upon the coffee unlike some other style of brewing coffee.   Once you start brewing your coffee with the Chemex you will find it difficult to go back to any other brewing form. 

BREWING WITH CHEMEX;

  1. Select your favorite Sea State Coffee roast and grind it to a medium course grind. Best way to do this is with a burr grinderbecause it delivers the most consistent grind.
  2. Grab you filter and fold it into a cone shape and place it in the Chemex brewer. The thick portion of the filter should cover the pouring spout.  You can take this a step further and wet the filter with warm water.  Once the water has drained through the filter you can dump it out.
  3. Add your coffee to the Chemex. You can add as much or as little as you want; however, we recommend adding at least one tablespoon per 5 fluid ounces of water.  The beautiful thing about the Chemex is, if you want your coffee stronger this style of brewing eliminates the bitterness that can be associated with coffee.  
  4. Once you have brought the amount of water needed to a boil, remove it from the heat and allow it to stop boiling. Then pour a small amount of water of the coffee grounds to wet them and wait about 30 seconds for them to “bloom.”  What blooming does, is it releases the most desirable coffee elements from the grounds.
  5. After the grounds have bloomed, slowly pour the water over the grounds while keeping the water level below the top of the Chemex. Roughly a quarter inch or more.
  6. You will want to slowly pour the remaining water over the grounds utilizing a circular or back-and-forth motion as you pour to ensure an even soaking of the grounds.
  7. When you have the desired amount of coffee brewed up, lift the filter with the spent grounds in it and discard them.
  8. Now you have brewed the perfect cup of coffee!
