Makin' Coffee

Trying out a new way to make good coffee using a Chemex flask.  First you weigh the coffee beans and use about 2 grams of coffee beans for each ounce of water.  Works out to about 1 cup of beans to 3 cups of water.  Then you grind the beans.  Only takes about 3 minutes to hand grind the beans.  Put the grounds in the cone filter in the top of the Chemex.  Pour a little hot water over the grounds just enough to wet them and watch them swell for about 30 seconds then slowly pour the rest of the hot water over the grounds as the water trickles through.  Makes great coffee and it was real easy, even as a first try.  Kind of fun grinding your own beans too.
