“Artisanal Pour Over Method with a Chemex”
Brewing coffee with a Chemex coffee brewer can result in an outstanding cup. Because a filter is used when brewing with the Chemex it produces a very clean cup of coffee. Chemex makes specially formulated coffee filters for use with all of their brewers. The thickness of the filter facilitates a slow brew time while filtering out the sediment that can be left behind by other brewing processes resulting in a very full, sweet and clean coffee. Basically brewing with a Chemex can give you all of the positive attributes of both press pot brewing and of filtered coffee brewing but none of the drawbacks of either.
One of the great things about manual pour-over brewing is that you have control over every aspect of the brewing process. Unlike an automatic coffee maker which brews every coffee at the same temperature for the same amount of time, with a manual pour-over you can change your method to suit a each coffee.
The Chemex® coffeemaker was invented by Peter J. Schlumbohm, Ph.D., in 1941. Schlumbohm was born in Kiel, Germany in 1896. He received his doctorate in Chemistry from the University of Berlin. After several trips to the United States, he settled in New York City in 1936. Over the years, he invented over 3,000 items for which he was granted patents. However, his coffeemaker and carafe kettles were his most long enduring inventions.
Come on in to Undergrounds and ask for any of our blends brewed by using the pour over method and experience what the Chemist created!
The French press offers unparalleled flavor due to perfect extraction time and delivery of the volatile oils that are often trapped in paper filters .The French press allows the coffee to fully extract with all of it’s natural oils and flavor characteristics. The brewing process of the french press is a little unconventional. The coarsely ground coffee brews with the hot water for 4 minutes, then the grounds are plunged with a press screen to the bottom of the press, thus leaving you with a full and rich cup of Coffee.
The French Press has always and will continue to be a staple trademark for Undergrounds and it’s beginnings. Choose any of our blends and we will freshly grind and prepare your french press with care and remember our roots and where we began as a coffee house.
