Posted Thu Nov 15, 2012, 10:32am Subject: Chemex drips instantly!
I just bought a 3 cup Chemex coffee maker with an unfolded half moon filter. I have seen multiple videos how to fold the filter and use the Chemex but whenever I pour the hot water the coffee starts dripping with no time. I am not rushing the water and the coffee should start to bloom but I can't get it to do so. Has anyone faced this?
From the time of roasting: 17 days (well isolated) From the time of grinding: 5 days (well isolated)
I followed the same instructions multiple times but I still the coffee drips within the first presence of water. Is it even a problem? I mean is it OK for the dripping to start or must it begins after moments from pouring the water?
