Re: My Chemex only produces bitter brews...what am I doing w

... but I guess I'd check the temperature of the water your "crappy drip machine" (lol) is reaching the grounds, then try that temp on the Chemex. From what I understand, cheap drip makers issues are the water is not hot enough and they don't thoroughly soak the grounds. The Chemex doesn't ...

My Chemex only produces bitter brews...what am I doing wrong

For the life of me I can't get the coffee from a Chemex to taste good. The same coffee I make in my crappy drip machine (I roast it myself) tastes pretty great, which is the weird thing. I make sure the temp of the water is 195-205, the ratio of ...

Re: And a couple more questions .

... you have measured it, you can get used to volume quite well, but I am a bit anal and weigh the coffee but know my finishing point on the 6-cup Chemex/KONE3 set up.

First Gene Cafe Batch ~Pointers Needed~

... was a bit brighter more acidic and fruity. The Indido had more personality while mine was a bit more plain-jane daily cupish. I normally brew Chemex. Any thoughts on the best roast for Chemex (med, city, ?) Thoughts on the process? As well I just ordered another 20lb of hawaiian konas + puerto ...

I was wearing all of my friends out talking about coffee...

... out of the shadows. I'm currently roasting on the cheap using a grill and a Behmor 1600 drum that I bought on clearance from SM. I brew using a chemex and prefer coffees with low acidity with a full body. I live in a rural area so the only option for fresh coffee is DIY. Lastly I'm really impressed ...

Paper filters

... a bunch of the flavor. The best I have found so far is to use a white paper towel folded up and trimmed with scissors. The Fitropa, Melitta, and Chemex all scalp a lot of flavor tried side by side. The reusable mesh filters allow fines that quickly turns the coffee undrinkable. Has anybody seen ...

Re: Chemex Pourover Question

Martin, originally I would fill the Chemex to the top but found that the Hario method of pour produced better coffee so I have continued with that method and it's good to know It's not out of the ordinary to have somewhat of a pile near the ...

Re: Chemex Pourover Question

I've been using a Chemex for a little over a year now and I find that I cannot consistently produce a product where all of the coffee grounds stick to the cone filter instead of grouping at the bottom of the filter. Is this that much ...
