  • Coffee: The right preparation for the perfect flavour.

    5. January 2024

    Coffee tastes good all over the world, and the right preparation is crucial for the perfect flavour. There are different types of coffee machines, but this time we would like to introduce the Chemex method, a lesser-known preparation method that is 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 process requires some patience and care, but the result is definitely worth it. Follow these simple steps to make the perfect coffee at home:

    Choose the best beans:
    There is only one (correct) answer here: the coffee beans from NABER Kaffee Manufaktur.

    Grind the beans:
    Because freshly ground coffee tastes best. The Chemex method also requires beans that are not ground too finely; a medium grind is recommended. If you don’t have a coffee grinder, you can grind the beans in a blender. Be careful not to grind the beans too finely, otherwise the coffee will taste bitter.

    Bring water to the boil:
    The right temperature of the water is crucial for the perfect flavour of the coffee. The water should be around 92 degrees Celsius before it is poured 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 ground coffee:
    Make sure that you distribute the water evenly over all the ground coffee and do not pour it in too quickly. If the water is poured in too quickly, it can affect the flavour of the coffee. 

    Put the lid on and wait:
    Once all the ground beans are covered with the hot water, place the lid on the filter holder of the Chemex jug and leave the coffee to stand for 5-6 minutes. The lid prevents steam from escaping and therefore keeps more heat in the container, which in turn means that the coffee is better extracted.

    Many people don’t realise 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 precisely adhered to. Those who take the trouble to consider all these factors will be rewarded with an outstanding flavour.
