The Chemex pour over coffee generally yields a very clean, smooth and light bodied cup. Use 28g fresh ground Milltown coffee per 453g (16oz) Chemex. The grind should be slightly coarser than v60 pour-over grind.

Supplies needed in addition to a bag of your favorite Milltown craft coffee:  pour kettle, gram scale, timer and burr grinder.

How to brew the best Chemex pour over coffee, from our house to yours:

  1. Place the filter into the Chemex and pre-wet filter
  2. Pour freshly ground Milltown coffee into filter and settle the coffee bed so it’s even
  3. Place Chemex onto scale and tare
  4. Start timer and slowly pour 45g of water (198-202 degrees) over the grounds
  5. Let the coffee bloom for 45 seconds
  6. At 0:45 seconds, slowly pour the rest of your water, up to 453g, over the grounds. Make sure your water level stays below the rim
  7. Once you’ve finished pouring, gently stir the coffee bed a couple times in a circular motion
  8. Coffee should finish brewing between 3:30-4:00 minutes. If not, adjust grind accordingly or pour slower/faster.
  9. Compost your coffee grounds
  10. Pour into your favorite coffee mug and enjoy!
