Coffee is the pillar to almost everyone’s morning and, in a way, it’s part of a routine you need to get right in order to have your day go smoothlyThere are many different brands, types, flavors, coffee shops and ways to make the bold morning beverage.

 

To get into the basics, there are three main types of coffee: light roast, medium roast,and dark roast. And believe it or not, the lighter the roast, the more caffeine! There are many ways to make coffee, including a classic drip coffeemaker, French Press, AeroPress, Stovetop Moka Pot and manual pour overs. But one of the best methods is a manual pour over using a Chemex. 

 

The Chemex is a heat-resistant, hourglass-shaped carafe that allows drinkers to make a cup of perfection while keeping all of the delicious, natural flavors coffee beans have to offer. The Chemex, along with its cone-shaped filters, ensures uniform extraction for pure coffee flavor that keeps bitter elements, oils and grounds in their place (and out of your cup). This not only makes a perfect cup of coffee, but it looks super fancy sitting on your counter with a polished wood collar and leather tie. The collar acts as an insulated handle around the middle of the coffeemaker for easy grabbing and the tie simply for fashion.

Pour over coffee is easy to transport, making it the most versatile way to pour yourself a cup of Joe while camping or hiking. To get the correct grind for the Chemex, visit your local coffee bean café and request a grind suited for your piece.
