Coffee Talk: Chemex

Tuesday, March 13, 2012

Last week Balazs got me the Chemex just out of the blue and we've been having little morning coffee making dates since then. It's so funny to think that over the years coffee became so much more to me than a quick hot drink. By now the whole ritual of grinding the beans and letting the smell of brewing coffee fill the whole flat is a huge part of the experience. It’s that special moment when time stands still while we patiently listen to the brewing sounds and chat about the most random things by our kitchen table. Oh, the little things in life!

Sweets, do you drink coffee? Have you ever tried the Chemex? I totally recommend it if you haven’t. If you fancy giving it a go, Kristy and Ben did this amazing how to tutorial that makes the whole process very easy. (Also, here is an awesome brewing guide video).  xo

I don't drink coffee daily, however, I do love a rare cup of Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee;-)

Is it similar to a french press or way better? I don't drink it at home, I do need a reason to go into work ;)

I'd love to try the Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee! It sounds so beautiful, Fashion, Art and other fancies:)

Nikki, they are both very good but totally different. French press is more full bodied and the Chemex is more crisp and clean.

Btw: Here is an interesting article on chemex in NY Times: http://tmagazine.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/04/22/ristretto-chemex/

I am fully addicted and it is like a drug to me. I love love love good coffee.

Stronger the better.
I adore Vietnamese coffee and the art of it.
This looks like a fun way to sit around the table and chat while it brews. Very cool!

i've never heard of chemex. I'm quite spoilt and have lots of great coffee shops near my apartment so don't tend to make coffee at home but i'm intrigued by this!

(and thanks for your lovely comment, i'm in a more positive mind set now and think it will all work out ok :)

Amy, I LOVE what you said: "coffee is like air to me...a must to live" - I feel like that sometimes too:)

Diana Mieczan said...

We don't own a Chemex, but I've had coffee made with one before - definitely really tasty! We recently have started a habit of making organic coffee each morning and making time to sit down and drink it together - SUCH a great start to the day!
