How to make Coffee with a Chemex x A Question Of Eagles
Good Morning Everyone!!!
Today I have a special blog post for you guys. Melissa and Jonathan of A Question of Eagles sent me a care package full of amazing ceramic pieces to add to my collection. So this morning, I got up early, made myself a cup of coffee as I do, and styled these lovely handmade ceramics.
Here's a little more about A Question of Eagles:
A Question of Eagles was born in Illinois, lived in Portland, Bend and Eugene, OR, moved to upstate New York, then settled in Los Angeles. We are inspired by nature, our travels through the American landscape, and studio pottery of the 60's and 70's.
When I would go into Have-Company or even when I saw the Design Sponge article on these guys, I've always knew that I wanted to work with them. With fully immersing myself into the makers world, ceramics have been one of the things that have always caught my eye.
So without further ado, let's make some coffee using a chemex.
: Ingredients and Utensils :
(adapted from Stumptown)
6 TBS Whole Bean Coffee ( I'm using Rowster Coffee today)
Chemex Filters ( not pictured because I bought the wrong ones)
Goose Neck Kettle
Step1: Fill your Kettle up with water and turn your stove on to medium to high heat
Step 2: Put your Filter into the chemex. Make sure the folded side is by the spout
When grinding for a chemex, Its usually grounded to a medium to fine grind. it should look like kosher salt.
Step 3: Grind your 6 TBS in a burr grinder.
Step 4: When the water has boiled and sat for 30 seconds, in a circular motion pour your water into the chemex, pre-wetting the filter and warming the chemex
Step 5: When the water goes through the chemex, pour out the excess water.
Step 6: Add your ground coffee beans to the chemex
Step 7: Zero out your scale and place chemex on top of the scale.
Step 8: Start by wetting the beans. This is called the bloom. Start with 150 g of water
Step 9: Let the coffee bloom
Step 10: Continue to pour until you reach 450 g of water: Pouring in a circular motion
Step 11: Let the coffee drain into the chemex.
Step 12: Continue to pour until you hit 700 grams
Step 13: Let it brew
Step 14: Serve and Enjoy
