Pour-Over Coffee Recipe

Pour-Over Coffee

In a Chemex coffee machine, produce the greatest pour-over coffee you’ve ever had! Here’s how to make pour-over coffee, as well as the equipment you’ll need.

What is the best way to make coffee? Pour the coffee over it. Take it from us, coffee nerds: pouring coffee through a Chemex is the best way to extract all of a coffee bean‘s subtle flavors. You know, that strangely shaped glass beaker that belongs in a research lab? We’ve found that the Chemex coffee maker makes the greatest cup of coffee we’ve ever had. We’ve tried everything from the French press

to the Moka pot. But for our daily cup of java, we always use Chemex. Here’s how to create the ideal cup of pour-over coffee.

Why use the Chemex for Pour-Over Coffee?

For years, Alex and I have experimented with many coffee techniques! What factors led us to choose Chemex as the finest pour-over coffee maker? We’ve tried just about every coffee device out there. Here are some of the reasons why we think it’s the best pour-over coffee maker on the market:

  • It makes the best flavor:Chemex coffee filters bring out the best in single origin, high-quality coffee. You’ll never want to go back once you’ve tried it! It’s ideal for light and medium roast coffees since it allows the bean’s flavour to show through.
  • It’s beautiful and functional:With its organic shape and materials, the Chemex coffee machine is a sight to behold. As a result, it’s also a gorgeous piece of art for the counter! We obviously value the coffee flavour above everything else, so the creativity is a nice addition.

Best Pour -Over Coffee Maker

Which Chemex coffee machine do we think is the best? This Chemex 8-cup coffeemaker is fantastic! It has the capacity to prepare up to four cups of coffee at once. In it, we produce two pots per day. This coffee maker comes in charming smaller sizes, but they’re far too little for our coffee intake.

Chemex coffee filters

The Chemex coffee maker makes use of specific coffee filters that bring out the coffee’s smooth flavour. These Chemex coffee filters come highly recommended. (Some reviewers reported that if you wash off the paper filters, you may reuse them several times.)


Best Pour- Over Coffee kettle

With your Chemex coffee maker, an electric gooseneck kettle is ideal. Why would you use a kettle like this? A gooseneck kettle allows you more control over the water flow, allowing you to slowly pour it over the coffee beans for optimal flavour extraction. Plus, it’s stylish! We use this electric gooseneck kettle to heat water for coffee and tea; we’ve used it for 6 years and it’s still going strong. Alternatively, this pour over coffee kettle is less expensive.

Variation: iced Pour-Over Coffee

Do you enjoy iced coffee? You can do it with a pour over as well! Go to our Chemex Iced Coffee recipe for more information. Isn’t that a huge plus for this method? It’s incredibly quick, only taking 10 minutes! You don’t have to refrigerate it for hours or overnight; you may make it whenever you want. The primary concept is to pour hot coffee over ice, which rapidly cools it down. We make pour over iced coffee all the time because it’s so quick.


  • 34 grams light or medium roast coffee beans
  • 520 grams filtered water (the flavor is best with filtered water)
  • Suger and cream or milk as your choice


  • Heat a pot of filtered water to 200 to 205F. We use an electric kettle that shows us the exact temperature. You could also use a teapot on the stove — just heat to boiling, then let the water cool down for a few minutes.
  • Use a food scale  to weigh out 34 grams of coffee, then grind it to a medium coarse grind (about the size of kosher or sea salt). We use an electric burr grinder to get a consistent grind.
  • When the water is heated, place the filter in your chemex (Chemex’s elegant 10- cup pourover coffee maker is made of borosilicate glass). Pour in just a bit of water to wet the filter, then pour out the water into the sink. Place the ground coffee into the Chemex and shake it to level it out.
  • Place the Chemex on the food scale and tare it so the scale reads 0. Slowly pour in 70 grams of water in a circular motion. Then stop and wait for 1 minute: this allows the coffee to bloom.
  • Then slowly add the remaining 520 grams water in two batches, pouring very slowly in concentric circles, pouring right onto the coffee and not touching the coffee filter. Fill to about ½ inch from the top (it will likely be around 400 grams water), wait for the water level to go down a bit, and then fill the remaining water up to 520 grams.
  • After a few minutes, all of the water will filter through the coffee grounds into the pot below. Remove the filter and discard it.
  • use suger and cream or milk as your choice.
