4 min prep time
Chemex coffee is a brew method that yields a very smooth cup of coffee with no extreme flavor notes or aftertastes. For those looking for a mellow yet strong cup, this style is ideal.
There's no wrong way to enjoy your coffee. Try our recommended guide below, or freestyle on the water / coffee ratio until you find your personal preference (AKA the perfect cup).

Grind size: Coarse like kosher salt.
