The Chemex is a design icon and an entertaining way to make great coffee. In this video from James Hoffmann, you can find the technique to make delicious coffee and the history of this beautiful gadget.

Must-do pointers for a great Chemex coffee are: 1) use a medium grind, 2) weigh your coffee and keep a ratio of 60 g of coffee for a liter of water, 3) use filtered water (Brita filters work great), and 4) rinse your filter before adding the ground coffee, and let the coffee bloom as shown in the video.
