  • Step 1: Get into the grind

    Select your favorite whole bean coffee you want to enjoy and grind it to medium coarse ground.

    Optional Tip: We suggest using a burr grinder because it delivers a more consistent particle size, allowing for a more even extraction and fuller bodied cup of coffee.

    Step 2: Filter up

    Open a Chemex Bonded Coffee Filter into a cone shape so that one side of the cone has three layers, and place it into the top of the Chemex brewer. The thick (three-layer) portion should cover the pouring spout.

    Optional Tip: Dampen the filter with warm water to rinse and preheat the brewer. Once the water has drained through the filter completely, pour it out of the brewer while keeping the filter sealed against the coffeemaker wall.

    Step 4: Let it bloom

    Once you have brought the appropriate amount of water to a boil, remove it from the heat and allow it to stop boiling vigorously.

    Pour a small amount of water over the coffee grounds to wet them, and wait for about 30 seconds for them to 'bloom', releasing the most desirable coffee elements from the grounds.

    Optional Tip: Perfect brewing temperature is about 200°F.

    Step 5: First pour

    After the grounds bloom, slowly pour the brewing water over the grounds while keeping the water level well below the top of the Chemex (quarter inch or more).

    Step 6: Brew on

    Slowly pour the remaining water over the grounds, using a circular or back-and-forth motion as you pour to ensure an even soaking of the grounds.

    Step 3: The scoop

    Put one rounded tablespoon of ground coffee for every 5 oz. cup into the filter cone. Feel free to use more if you prefer it stronger; our Chemex brewing process eliminates bitterness.

    Tip: On all brewers except the pint size model, the 'button' indicates the carafe is half filled and the bottom of the wooden collar/spout indicates it's full. On the pint size brewer, the button is the full marker.

    Step 7: Toss the filter

    Once the desired amount of coffee is brewed, lift the filter with spent grounds out of the brewer and discard.

    Step 8: Enjoy the perfect cup

    Pour your freshly made coffee into your Chemex mug and indulge in the flavor.
