Subject: Brewing between 15 and 45 Ounces in a single Chemex? Which Cheme
 

Hi

It has taken me a year for my brewing routine to evelve. Wht the length of time? It has taken a while for my partner to get on the coffee band-wagon, which has led to both more and more varied production.

My first approach was to have many different sizes to meet all these scenarios. This has led to four sizes (6 cup, 8 cup 10 cup and 13 cup). Storage and pot swapping is a real drag. I should say I have both hand-blown and glass handle models and my mand coordination is not the best if that matters. Sometimes I have to think a bit on grasping the wood collar. I could use an over glove and maybe should, as that would eliminate the issue.

I have no inherent preference, other than to say there are advantages and disadvantages of each. I am looking to make life more and to reduce the number of pots, significantly.


My bewing needs are the following:

Mornings 20-24 Ounces
Evenings 25-30 Ounces
Weekends 40-45 Ounces
Very Rarely 12 Ounces (single mug)
Very Rarely 50-65 Ounces for company.

Can a single Chemex accomodate all these situations? If not, what would you advise?

Thanks

Jay
