- Weigh out the proper amount of coffee beans and grind them on a medium-course setting.
- Set the Chemex on top of your scale and zero (tare) it.
- Set a timer and begin pouring about 50g-75g of water over the coffee grounds, enough to saturate all of the coffee. Bloom for 30 seconds.

- Discard filter and serve.
