Hi

Of all the brewing methods I have tried, I prefer the chemex. I generally brew 20-14 ounces, but sometimes I want to brew smaller. I find the three cup awkward. Can the six or eight cup handle batches in the 13-17 range batches? If so, what grind for this smaller batch? I am using a baratza vario-W.

Thanks in advance

Jay

A quick trip to chemexcoffeemaker.com and a click on products takes you directly to the information.  The six-cup brewer has a 30-ounce capacity.

I've used the 8 cup and 10 cup Chemex and based on this experience, you should have no problem brewing 15 ounce batches in the 6 cup Chemex.  I was doing about 20 oz (600 Ml) batches in my 8 cup with regularity.

I would recommend you grind for your target pour time, probably bloom at least 30 seconds and have a pour time of three to four minutes.  The grind will vary based on load size and filter.
