Coffee: The right preparation for the perfect taste.
Coffee tastes good around the world, for the individual moment of pleasure is the right preparation crucial for the perfect taste. There are different types of coffee machines, but this time we would like to introduce a lesser-known method of preparation with the Chemex method, which is considered an insider tip among true “coffee lovers”.
The Chemex method is based on the slow drip brewing process using coffee filters, in which hot water is slowly poured over freshly ground coffee. This procedure requires some patience and care, but the result is definitely worth it. Follow these simple steps to brew the perfect coffee at home:

- Grind the beans:
Because freshly ground coffee tastes best. The Chemex method also does not require the beans to be ground too finely, a medium degree of grinding is recommended. If you don’t have a coffee grinder, you can grind the beans in a food processor. Be careful not to grind the beans too finely or the coffee will taste bitter.
- Boil water:
The right temperature of the water is crucial for the perfect taste of the coffee. The water should be about 92 degrees Celsius before pouring it over the beans. Important: Place two filter bags in the filter funnel and moisten them with a few splashes of warm water before pouring in the ground coffee.
- Pour the water slowly over the beans:
Make sure you distribute the water evenly over all the beans and don’t pour in too quickly. If the water is poured in too quickly, it may affect the taste of the coffee.
- Put the lid on and wait:
After all of the beans are covered with the hot water, place the lid on the Chemex pot’s portafilter and let the coffee sit for 5-6 minutes. The lid prevents steam from escaping, keeping more heat in the container, which in turn means the coffee is extracted better.
Many people don’t realize how much work goes into making a really good coffee. The beans have to be roasted and ground correctly, the water quality has to be right and the brewing time has to be adhered to exactly. Those who take the trouble to consider all of these factors will be rewarded with excellent taste.
