Another day, another cup of coffee! Ever wondered how our Head Roastmaster Chris enjoys his coffee throughout the day?
Join us for our fourth installment of a (coffee) day in the life of Roastmaster Chris and join him as he makes his way through the day, one cup of coffee at a time! Today, we’ll be joining Chris as he makes himself a cup of coffee using a Chemex.
It’s recommended to store your coffee in an airtight container, such as our Airscape® Coffee Storage Canister. This stainless steel canister will preserve your Joffrey’s artisan roasts by keeping air out to protect freshness and flavor.
After grinding down his coffee fresh, Roastmaster Chris enjoys making another cup of coffee using one of his other favorite brewing methods, the Chemex method.
Not familiar with the Chemex method or looking for some new tips and tricks? Join Roastmaster Chris for a step by step tutorial!
- Start with about 1.5 ounces (can add more/less to taste) of your favorite freshly ground Joffrey’s coffee, filling the cone filter about 3/4 of the way up
- Wet grounds by slowly pouring water over them, allowing the extraction process to begin and the crust to form
- Always use water that is no hotter than 200 degrees
- Never use boiling water to brew coffee. Ideally, the water should be around 200 degrees (boiling water will usually reach this temperature after resting for two minutes).
- Once a crust starts forming, pause and let it settle
- Once the grounds have settled, slowly begin pouring the rest of the water over the grounds to slowly break the crust
- Sit back, relax and enjoy your delicious Joffrey’s coffee!
