So I've had a Chemex brewer for a few years now, but I've only ever used it to filter cold-brew coffee with it. Today, i figured now that I've got a proper burr grinder, I'd make a proper Chemex cup. I used the Stumptown guide
, which is a nice one because it doesn't require you to have a scale. Did use a pyrex measuring cup to pour the water because I don't have a long-neck kettle, but it still worked.
I see why people say it produces a clean, bold cup but not much for body. The extra-thick Chemex filters probably explain that. Worlds different than a standard Mr. Coffee drip cup, but probably not something I'd make on a daily basis. More of a weekend thing when I'm not having to worry about getting ready for work.
"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan
"To doubt everything or to believe everything are two equally convenient solutions; both dispense with the necessity of reflection." - Henri Poincaré
