Chameleon’s Whole Bean line gives you the freedom to brew the perfect cup of coffee any time of day, just the way you like it. Our The Day Breaker features beans from the Guji subregion of Ethiopia specifically known for their organic coffee. With flavors of wine, ripe fruits, and wildberries, this naturally processed coffee is a delicious way to start the day.

While you can prepare your coffee any way you want, we recommend brewing The Day Breaker using the Chemex brew method.

Step 1

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.

Step 3 

Add the remaining 18 oz. of water, then let it drain. Total brew time is about 4 minutes.

Brewing Basics

  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.
