Re: What Size Chemex for 2?

Hi LorenD, 26 oz is 769 ml... just to check, I poured 800 ml into my 6 cup and there's roughly 2 inches clearance to the filter.

So either the 6 or 8 cup Chemex will fit your needs for 26 oz of coffee.

Re: What Size Chemex for 2?

Thanks for the replies. Apologies, I should have been more specific about "big mugs". I just grabbed two of our favorite mugs from the cupboard, and together they hold around 26 ounces of water. So, to comfortably brew a mug each for us in the morning, what size Chemed? Edit: I posted this...

Re: What Size Chemex for 2?

I agree, the 6 cup will hold 24 oz, maybe a little more, and would probably work fine. Sweet Maria's carries the 8 cup and I don't see a disadvantage going to the slightly larger size. I brew around 12 oz in the 6 cup, using about half its capacity, and haven't noticed any disadvantage versus using ...

Re: What Size Chemex for 2?

... to brew more than 4 "cups" (5 oz coffee cup), but maybe not more than 6 (30 oz), which would be a fine fit to the smaller classic Chemex that SM carries. If your mugs are larger than I guessed, there's also an 8 cup and 10 cup model - prices aren't all that different, but maybe ...

Hello from New Zealand!

... press, Sunbeam auto dripper, a Breville Infuser (BES840) espresso machine, an old stove top percolator (american style not a moka variant), and a Chemex... I'm going to get a Hario V60 also... Don't cringe regarding the percolator!! I had to get one to try it out and see what the coffee tasted ...

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

... from the time the water first touches the grounds until it has all run through? Here's a link to instructions right here on SM on how to use a Chemex. You may have already seen it. https://www.sweetmarias.com/brewinstr/brewing.inst.chemex.php

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.
