Step 5

Place a filter into the top compartment of the Chemex making sure the 3-layered side is facing the spout. This will eliminate any of the papery taste from effecting the brew and will also preheat your Chemex. After 30 seconds pour out the water in the flask.

Step 6

Once thoroughly saturated, tip the Chemex over a sink to dispose of the rinse water. Don’t be tempted to remove the filter to empty faster; it can be difficult to secure back into place once removed

Step 7

Pour your ground coffee into the pre-wet filter

Step 8

Starting in the center, gently pour twice the amount of water that you have coffee into the grounds (60 grams in this case). Work your way outwards as you are pouring in circular motions, clock wise. This step will allow the coffee to “Bloom” and fully de-gas. This is an important step so do it slowly. Let it be for 45 seconds.

Step 9

Continue pouring the water in stages (around 100g at a time) in the same clockwise circular motion while making sure that the grounds are never exposed to air until the brew is finished. Try to aim in the center and move about an inch outwards only. Pour until the drips stall to every couple of seconds. You should be pouring at a rate to which you will reach 480 grams of coffee in four to five minutes.

Place your portafilter on a scale and tare the weight.

Grind between 18-20 grams of fine coffee and place it in a clean portafilter. Proper grind is crucial, so please use the parameters in this guide to ensure you dial in the grind correctly.

Step 3
Distribute the coffee using the bottom of fingers to swipe coffee from side to side motions, then top to bottom motions.

Step 4
Tamp your coffee to create an even surface. There is no need to tamp too hard, tamp about 20-30 pounds of pressure. Now give the tamper a gentle spin to even the grinds in the portafilter.

Step 5
Purge your group head thoroughly and place the portafiler in the group head

Step 6
If your using a volumetric machine. Press the double shot option and ensure you pull 2 oz of coffee in a span of 25-30 seconds. If your machine pulled 2 oz in less than 25 seconds then you should re do with a finer grind size. If your machine pulled 2 oz in more than 30 seconds then you should re do with a courser grind size.

How to Brew with a Syphon

Step 1
Soak your filter in warm for 5 minutes, after it soaked hook to the bottom of hopper’s glass tubing in the top chamber.

Step 2
Fill the round bottom chamber with 300 grams of hot water.

Step 3
Connect the top chamber with the bottom chamber without having to push to hard, just stabilize it. Now place the heat source under the bottom chamber.
