I got a Chemex for Christmas, and this morning I brewed with it for the first time. It’s a six cup Chemex, and it is beautiful. Pour-over coffee is the best way to make coffee, and I’m glad I can now do so at home.
I buy beans from either Octane, Seeds, or O’Henry’s here in Homewood. All three are great, but different, coffee shops. Lightly roasted Ethiopian beans are typically my favorite.
There’s plenty for me to learn brewing with Chemex. I’m glad I got the six cup, as I can drink it quick enough to not get cold. But my pouring method needs some work.
Just because I’m a nerd, here’s a little time-lapse.
Now I guess it’s time to make another pot.
