Brew technique using a Chemex:

Boil your water and let it cool for 1-2 minutes - you want a water temperature of 90-95 degrees Celsius Place your filter in your Chemex with the thicker part and folds towards the spout Wet the filter with some of your hot water to rinse it and heat the glass Pour out the hot water before starting to brew Grind your coffee to a medium-coarse grind (almost as coarse as French Press) Put ~6g of ground coffee into the filter per 100ml (60g/L) - shake it a little to flatten the coffee grounds Bloom the coffee grounds for 30-40 seconds by pouring in just enough water to wet them all Slowly pour in the rest of your water in a circular motion - only pour onto the grounds, not the sides Once you've poured in all your water (125ml per cup or 250ml per mug), let it all filter through (this should take ~3-4 mins) Remove the filter, pour your coffee & enjoy!
