CHEMEX RECIPE COFFEE BREWING

Chemex is a vessel similar to an object from a chemical laboratory, a glass flask with a wooden "collar." The shape is similar to an hourglass. The coffee is prepared by inserting cellulose filters into an upper part and pouring hot water at 93-95 degrees into the medium-coarse ground coffee.

Here you find Chemex recipe and get a drink with a particularly delicate taste, deep aroma, and moderate strength. This coffee has been trendy in recent years. Pour-over brewing is the basis of Chemex and V60. Despite fundamental differences, Chemex already has a carafe in which coffee is poured and then aerated (oxygen saturation), while V60 can be poured into any container.

The second point is the thickness of the filter. Chemex filters are dense, which means they must be thoroughly rinsed with hot water to eliminate the taste of the paper. Nonetheless, the cup is very light and silky. Enjoy your Chemex recipe.
