The Chemex is a drip method, which means that the water passes through a layer of coffee and a filter normally made of paper, the Chemex gives you an incredibly clean cup of coffee, your paper filters are between 20% or 30% heavier than the other filters so that they can retain more suspended oils during the extraction process and so that the solids can not pass through the filter.
The coffee resulting from this preparation highlights the aromatic characteristics of the grain that is being prepared, leaving bitterness in the filter.
The shape of the cone (60º angle): allows the water to flow towards the center, extending the contact time. A single large hole allows to modify the flavor. The surface allows air to be released, maximizing the expansion of coffee grinding, the most important variables to consider are the water flow and the type of grinding. If you add water slowly, the result will be a full-bodied coffee. But if you add water faster, you will get a weak extraction and a light body.
The French press is a complete immersion preparation device with a metal mesh filter. This guarantees something in particular, a viscous extraction with a lot of body and an increase in texture due to the fact that most of the oils remain in the final extraction but also less coffee particles. The ability to control all variables of a press such as water temperature, grinding and extraction time, allows the improvement of preparation methods according to personal preferences. You can enjoy the nuances of aroma and flavors in each coffee what are you preparing.
This coffee has the particularity that no heat has been applied in its preparation, and that in its infusion process has only been left in contact with water (some other places with ice) for the necessary time (usually between 12 and 24 hours) so that it retains the aromas and flavors of coffee.
