Chemex 6 cup wood handle brewer

$65.50

 

  • Undoubtedly one of the most recognizable and elegant coffee makers available. The Chemex was designed in 1941 and has been making delicious coffee ever since.

    Its non-porous, heat-resistant glass construction, combined with proprietary, scientifically designed filters, produces coffee with clarity and complexity.

    In fact, it's the filters that are the star of the Chemex show. They are 20-30% heavier than other filters and remove even the finest sediment particles. The design of the filter facilitates the proper infusion time by regulating the filtration rate - about a 4 minute brew.

    One warning: As the filters are made of heavy paper, they require a full rinse with hot water. before brewing. to remove any paper taste. It's worth noting that there are also other filter options for the Chemex.

    Since the Chemex is made out of glass, you can see the coffee as it brews and, as it's a pour over method, you can also customize your particular brew method very easily.

    It comes with a polished wood collar and leather tie: the collar serving as an insulated handle around the middle of the coffeemaker.

    The Chemex is so cool that it has a permanent display in the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and is how James Bond makes his coffee. What other endorsements do you need?

BREWING FUNDAMENTALS

  • Preheat your brewing vessel
  • Weigh your ingredients
  • Make sure your brewing vessel is clean
  • Use water that is almost but not quite boiling
  • Make sure to wet all the grounds evenly
  • Rinse any paper filters with hot water before use
  • Be sure to grind the coffee to the correct coarseness for the brewer you are using
  • Fresh coffee will "bloom" which is CO2 being released as hot water hits the coffee
  • To adjust strength change the grind, not the ratio of coffee to water. For stronger tasting coffee grind finer for less intense flavor coarsen your grind.
