While you can prepare your coffee any way you want, we recommend brewing The Day Breaker using the Chemex brew method.
The Day Breaker: Chemex
Place a pre-rinsed filter in the Chemex and add 7 TBSP of medium ground coffee.
Pour 6 oz of near boiling water over the grounds and let them bloom for 30 seconds.
Add the remaining 18 oz of water, then let it drain. Total brew time is about 4 minutes.
1. Use freshly ground coffee for the richest flavor and smoothest brew.
2. Water quality makes a big impact on your coffee’s flavor! So always use clean, filtered water.
3. Brew tastes a little off? Try adjusting the grind size. If it’s light and sour, try a finer grind. If it’s dark and bitter, try a coarser grind.
