Burr Grinder

Pouring Kettle

Digital Gram Scale


step 1

Unfold the filter and insert into the dripper. Place your V60 cone atop a mug and rinse the filter with hot water. Leaving the V60 and filter in place, discard the water in your mug.

step 2

Weigh out 40 grams (about 5 level tablespoons) of whole beans. Grind the beans to a medium-coarse consistency.

step 3

Pour the ground coffee into the filter, giving a gentle shake to settle the grounds. Place the Chemex pot on your scale and tare to ‘0 grams.’

step 4

Allow your water to reach a boil, and then wait 45-60 seconds. Start your timer and pour 60 grams of brewing water into the center of the bed of grounds. Let stand for 45 seconds, allowing the coffee to absorb the water.

step 5

Begin pouring a steady, even stream of hot water over the grounds in a circular motion. Continue slowly pouring until your scale displays ‘630 grams.’ Avoid pouring water directly onto the filter. When all water has dripped through the filter, the volume of coffee should be level with the raised glass button on the side of the Chemex

step 6

When all the water has dripped through the filter (ideally between 2-2:30 minutes), remove and discard the filter and brewed grounds. Drink up!
