I’ve been making my coffee with a Chemex for almost ten years now. It’s a very analog process and one that isn’t for everybody, but it’s the home-brew method that makes the best coffee I’ve ever had.
Aside from making exceptional coffee, the Chemex is also probably the most reliable, the most affordable and one of the most environmentally sound methods of coffee making on the planet. No wires, no plugs, no tech, minimal carbon footprint. Just a glass carafe and a little bit of wood at the neck, tied with a thin leather strap.
This little one-minute video shows how I do it. (In real time, the whole process actually takes about 10 minutes.) Enjoy!
