To brew two large cups of Chemex coffee, the amount of coffee you’ll want to use is approximately 34 grams of coffee grounds (or coffee beans) and 510 grams of water (that’s 17.2 oz of water). Like we discussed above, we’re getting that amount using the default 1:15 ratio.
Moreover, how do you make a 10 cup Chemex?
Pour a small amount of water in a circular motion over the coffee grounds to wet them, and wait for about 30 seconds for the grounds to “bloom”. After the grounds bloom, slowly pour the water over the grounds while keeping the water level well below the top of the CHEMEX Coffeemaker (a quarter inch or more).
Besides, how do you make Chemex coffee for 2 people?
Chemex For Two Recipe
- Heat a full kettle of water to 207 degrees.
- Measure out 42g of coffee on your scale.
- Grind your coffee on a coarse setting (typically about 24-25 on a Baratza Virtuoso.)
- While your coffee is grinding, place your filter in the top of the Chemex and presoak it with hot water.
How much coffee do I put in an 8 cup Chemex?
Use a brew ratio of one part ground coffee to 16 or 17 parts water to start. Using this ratio, an 8-cup Chemex brewer is ideally suited to a recipe of 45 grams of ground coffee to 720 grams of brew water: Place the Chemex brewer on a scale.
When using tablespoons and an 8-ounce cup, this is the general rule. For 2 cups, 16 oz water plus four tablespoons of coffee will be enough, and for 3 cups =24 oz water plus 6 tablespoons coffee. For 4 oz water plus 8 tablespoons of coffee and for cups, 40 oz water plus 10 tablespoons coffee.
For making 6 cups, we recommend 10 Tablespoons or ~ 60 grams of coffee. For making 8 cups, we think 14 Tablespoons or ~80 grams of coffee is a good starting point. You may need to use more or less coffee, depending on your preferred coffee strength.
For an 8 oz cup, you will need 14 grams of coffee. For a 12 oz cup, you will need 21 grams of coffee. For a 20 oz cup, you will need 36 grams of coffee. Set your coffee brewer on a scale.
It’s a good idea to warm your cups with some hot water too. Grind 25g (for 3 Cup Chemex) 44g (for 6 Cup Chemex) of coffee and place it in the filter. Gently tap the Chemex on the bench to settle the grounds into a flat bed. Gently pour in 40g (for 3 Cup Chemex) 80g (for 6 Cup Chemex) water, just off the boil.
Pour Over Coffee Ratio
We recommend a water to coffee ratio of 16:1 or 15:1 if you prefer a more potent cup. This means 16 grams of water for every gram of coffee. To calculate how much coffee you need, weigh the amount of water you want to brew and divide that by 16.
