The Chemex is a beloved brewing method that came on the scene in 1941, so it has been around a while. It is pretty simple pour over that can be done easily by beginners or tweaked and perfected by the pros. One factor people love is that the filters are thicker and seem to filter out more of the unwanted oils that produce bitter flavor notes.

Here are a few tips from us on how to get a clean cup:

1. Always use fresh coffee from Haciendo (whole bean/fresh ground, and no more than a couple weeks old if possible)

2. Use filtered water or some sort of good water. This helps with flavor and keeps your kettle from buildup.

3. Use a good ratio (recipe). Most people don’t have one locked in so their brewing is inconsistent.

4. Use a scale to measure the coffee and to monitor the water during the pour.

5. Get the right grind size for each new coffee you try. Doing this will ensure the pour is good.

6. Let it bloom! (the bloom is when you wet the grounds and let them de-gas for 45 seconds)

7. Slow down your pour! The total brewing time with bloom included should be about 3mins

How Much Coffee Should I Order?

Our whole bean coffees come in 12 oz bags. Brewing methods, cup size, and preference all will affect how far it will go, but a 12 oz bag should be about a two-week supply for 1-2 coffee drinkers. You can always increase, decrease, or pause your subscription if needed.

Keep in mind, you want your coffee to be fresh, so don’t order too many bags at once. It’s best to keep your order spaced out so we can deliver you the freshest and best tasting coffee.
