How to Brew the Perfect Chemex

February 26, 2019

 

From a Chemex, to French press to the standard drip machine, welcome to our new series, “How to Brew” where our in-house brewing expert Nick Villalon will teach you everything you need to know about how to make one delicious cup of Grounds & Hounds coffee. Today, Nick is going to show you how to tackle brewing the perfect Chemex.

The Chemex is a terrific way to start your morning off right – it’s simple, easy and only takes a few steps. All you need is your Chemex, a parchment filter, medium ground coffee (sea salt consistency), and heated water (200-degree Fahrenheit).

What you want to do first is wet the parchment paper before adding your coffee grounds. A good rule of thumb is two tablespoons for every six ounces. Once you take the water off the stove, let it sit for about 30-45 seconds before pouring. Once you begin pouring, focus on the outer cone first and work your way towards the center.

While you wait, feel free to give your pup a few belly rubs or play a couple rounds of fetch with one of our Grounds & Hounds plush toys

Your coffee is ready once it has ceased to drip from the parchment filter. Before I toss it, I like to give the paper a little squeeze, so I don’t let any coffee go to waste.  What’s great about the Chemex is that it not only gives you a cleaner cup of coffee but is perfect for entertaining friends & family. We hope this how-to on how to brew the perfect Chemex inspires you to give it a try! Visit our store for all your Chemex needs!

As much as we love Independence Day, the July 4th holiday also results in the highest shelter intake wave of the year. The barrage of fireworks and outdoor activities leads to a high number of runaway dogs. As a result, on July 5th shelters can become overwhelmed with lost lost pups.
