Chemex Love

21 Oct

To say that I love my new Chemex is an understatement. I’d heard great things about this pour over system, but I’d never had coffee brewed with a Chemex until now.

DSC_4538Talk about a great cup of coffee. And the simple design of glass with a wooden collar, leather and beads look very nice in my kitchen.

The chemist who invented the Chemex in 1941 wanted to create a coffeemaker that brewed a great cup of coffee every single time. He used his knowledge of chemistry to create the design and figured out that the higher water temperature and amount of air allowed to escape the vessel would do just that.

DSC_4598If you really enjoy a good cup of joe, you won’t be disappointed by this pour over system. It’s easy to do and clean-up is a cinch. So far, I’ve brewed a Starbucks blend and blend from Peet’s. Both were good, but Peet’s definitely stole the show. I plan to try out some local Orange County roasters, as well as a few others soon. So, stay tuned!

DSC_4602-2The drip process is also enjoyable to watch. It’s somehow very zen to me. I’ll take that after a crazy busy day. I am sure I’ll be pulling out my Chemex pretty often from now on instead of always using the automatic drip coffeemaker.

DSC_4618Do you brew your coffee with a Chemex? What’s your favorite blend to use?
