Pour

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.

Brew

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 pot.
