Brewing via Infusion
Posted By: Something's Brewing | Posted On:
Are you ready to venture into the world of Brewing via infusion?
In the drip method, hot water is poured over ground coffee in a filter, and allowed to drip into a container. With this drip style of coffee brewing, less is more. Most drippers in this method are small, portable and inexpensive, and perfect if you want to brew small batches of great-tasting coffee.
1. Chemex Brewer
Dr. Peter Schlumbohm was a chemist that introduced Chemex to the world in 1941. He invented a product based on elegance and simplicity to deliver the best brew.
- Grind your coffee to a medium-coarse.
- Place the filter on the Chemex with the 3-layer side along with the sprout.
- Add ground coffee according to the number of cups you want to make.
- For the first pour, wet the grounds evenly for blooming. For the second pour, pour concentric circles working outwards.
- A 6-cup Chemex recipe will require you to spread your pours throughout 2:30 for a total brew time of 5 minutes.
It may seem confusing at first, but once you master the Chemex technique, we're sure you'll enjoy every sip to the end!
It's small, light, and easy to transport. What more do you need for the perfect brew?
- Bring your water to a boil and then let it sit for 30 seconds.
- Grind 15 to 20 grams of coffee to a medium-coarse grind.
- Place the filter in the dripper and the dripper on the decanter.
- Add the ground coffee.
- Add enough water to evenly saturate the grounds for blooming. Let this sit for 45 seconds.
Once 45 seconds are up, slowly pour 250 ml of water in concentric circles.
Once the water is drained, it's time for you to enjoy your coffee!
3) Kalita Wave Brewer
Unlike the V60, the Kalita involves a simple cone-shaped dripping system that is flat-bed, which means longer dwell times and less room for error!
- Insert the filter into your Kalita coffee dripper.
- Place the carafe on scales and tare them to 0.
- Add the coffee to the filter and shake it to level the grounds.
- Wait a couple of moments before you pour freshly boiled water.
- Start the timer and pour 40 to 60 grams of water into the filter in a circular motion.
- Let the coffee bloom for 45 seconds.
- Once bloomed, stir with a spoon and proceed with a second pour, maintaining an even level of water above the grounds. Keep pulse pouring until you reach the correct grams of water.
Your total brew time should be around 3 minutes.
That's it! Pour your filter coffee into a mug and enjoy!
