FAQ

How to Use a Chemex

Using a Chemex for brewing coffee involves a few simple steps that lead to a delicious and clean cup of coffee:

  1. Boil Water

    First, heat water to about 200°F, which is just off the boil.
  2. Insert Filter

    Place a Chemex bonded filter in the top of the brewer, with the thicker, multi-fold portion facing the pouring spout to prevent it from collapsing during brewing.
  3. Add Coffee

    Add ground coffee to the filter. The standard ratio is about 1 gram of coffee for every 16 ml of water (about 1 tablespoon of coffee for every 4 ounces of water).
  4. Bloom Coffee

    Pour a small amount of hot water over the grounds to wet them evenly and let them "bloom" for about 30 seconds to release gases.
  5. Pour Water

    Slowly pour the remaining hot water over the coffee grounds in a circular motion, ensuring the water is evenly distributed over the grounds. The total brew time should be about 4 minutes.
  6. Remove Filter

    Once brewing is complete, lift the filter with the grounds out of the brewer and discard it.
  7. Serve

    Pour the brewed coffee into a cup and enjoy!

Which Chemex to Buy?

When deciding which Chemex model to buy, consider the different sizes and styles to find one that best suits your needs:

  • Chemex 3-Cup

    Ideal for single users or couples. It’s compact, making it easy to store and quick to use.
  • Chemex 6-Cup

    Suitable for small families or small groups. This size is the most popular, balancing capacity with ease of use.
  • Chemex 8-Cup

    Great for larger families or for those who often entertain guests. It provides a generous amount of coffee without taking up too much space.
  • Chemex 10-Cup

    Best for large gatherings or offices. It maximizes brewing capacity, so you spend less time brewing multiple batches.

All models use the same brewing method and offer the same quality of taste. The choice mainly depends on how much coffee you typically need.

How to Clean a Chemex

Cleaning your Chemex is straightforward and essential to maintain its performance and durability:

  1. Empty Grounds

    Discard the used coffee grounds and filter immediately after brewing.
  2. Rinse with Hot Water

    Rinse the brewer with hot water to remove any remaining coffee particles.
  3. Soap and Scrub

    Occasionally, wash with warm soapy water and use a soft brush or sponge to scrub away any coffee oil residues inside the glass.
  4. Rinse Thoroughly

    Ensure all soap is rinsed out, as residual soap can affect the taste of your coffee.
  5. Air Dry

    Invert the Chemex and allow it to air dry completely before storing. Avoid using abrasive cleaners or pads that can scratch the glass.

What Grind for Chemex?

The grind size for brewing coffee in a Chemex should be medium-coarse, similar to sea salt. This grind size allows for a balanced extraction that is slow enough to be flavorful but fast enough to prevent over-extraction, which can result in bitterness. A burr grinder is recommended for consistent grind size. Fine grinds should be avoided as they can clog the filter and extend the brew time excessively, potentially leading to over-extraction.
