Does anyone have any good recommendations for an optimal coffee to water ratio for pour-overs? I am not interested in cold brews and I use a Chemex carafe with Chemex filters.

I generally prefer light to medium-dark roasts, but I am open to trying other roasts that tend towards the darker side.

I would guess that dark roasts may require a lower coffee to water ratio than lighter roasts.

  • James Hoffmann recommends around 60-65 grams of coffee per 1000 grams of water, check out his video on the V60 and the Chemex if you haven't already. – technical_difficulty Nov 19 at 14:36
