Place a filter into the top compartment of the Chemex making sure the 3-layered side is facing the spout. Rinse the filter with ample hot water, to prevent any papery taste from affecting the brew. This step also preheats the Chemex.
Pour 20 grams of water. Your water ought to be about 95 degrees Celsius. The goal is even saturation, so pour slowly in a clockwise pattern. Don’t worry if you see a few drips falling through. This bloom allows the coffee to de-gas, enabling the water to yield the full potential of the coffee. This is an essential step that should never be rushed.
After about 30 seconds, add water in stages (around 70–100ml at a time) until you reach the desired final brew weight, making sure that the grounds are never exposed to air until the brew is finished.
Once the drips stall to every couple of seconds, your brew is finished. Remove the filter and discard.
