As you know, Mr. Coffee and other cheap coffee makers run boiling hot water through BPA laced plastic. This is avoidable with the BPA Free all glass drip coffee pour over ChemEx system.
Or of course a simple French Press. Other options often include aluminum and metal coated systems. This should also be avoided. Glass is the only true way to get your fresh organic BPA free coffee just perfect.
Top 3 Organic Coffees Online
My thoughts are? What is the point of BPA Free Coffee if you’re not going to use fresh organic whole beans? You can get all fancy, but if you’re still putting Folgers in your cup, you’re doing it wrong. These are great organic fair trade whole bean suppliers that you can get direct online. I personally have the top 2 at the same time so I can switch it up. I lied about the 3rd one. I have not ever tried it because I do not do Pumpkin Spice but a lot of people swear by this one. Try it and comment below.
But it’s more work!
Sure, instead of just pressing a button on your automatic coffee machine, you must now spend 3 minutes making your coffee. But the fresh chemical and BPA free drip coffee is going to be so worth it. I do this every morning and it really does not take as long as you think it would. You even find other kitchen task to take care of during the process. If you want clean coffee, this really is your only option. Do not be fooled by “BPA Free” machines that still use plastic. They use BPE, which is practically the same thing with a different name so they can say “BPA Free”. Glass is the only way to get around this and pour over is the purest form. No more ingesting toxic coffee made in cheap Chinese plastic machines.
How to make BPA Free coffee in a ChemEx
1) Boil Water – This is kind of obvious. You must boil water. I myself use a pure glass kettle I got online, because again I do not want to use a kettle made out of random metals with unknown coatings.
2) Grind Beans – Since we’re buying organic whole beans, you will need to grind them. With the Chemex it is up to you how you want to grind your beans. Most people will say a coarse to fine grind is best but I like to grind my beans very fine so the water takes longer to pass through and my coffee is stronger. For that reason, I bought a cheap Krups electric bean grinder and it has lasted me years. You can grind the beans while the water is boiling to save time.
3) Set Up Chemex – Chemex has special filter cones made just for it. Place one in the top of the Chemex glass beaker, then pour the ground beans inside of the coffee filter.I actually use warm water to wet the filter ahead of time. They say this is better for the coffee oils or something but I say that is a wifes tail because it’s going to get wet as soon as you pour water anyways. Why do I do it then? To rinse it off. Warehouse dust who knows.
4) Blooming – Blooming is when you pour just enough hot water on your grind so that it gets wet but you then let it sit for about 45 seconds while the gasses come to the surface. Coffee experts swear by it, I do it because everyone says to do it.
5) Brewing – After the blooming, you just slowly pour hot water over your fresh ground coffee and watch the sweet liquid flow into the Chemex beaker. This takes a few minutes but once done, you’re ready to drink the purest freshest dopest coffee.
6) Profit – Now that you have taken the 3 to 4 minutes to make that coffee, enjoy the hell out of it. This is your organic fair trade all glass, plastic and BPA free premium fresh ground coffee. You won’t ever be able to go back to a plastic coffee maker. All glass everything!
French Press Versus ChemEx
Many people swear by the french press, and I can’t blame them. It is maybe the fastest laziest way to make quick coffee. I think the clean up is a little harder and you must be OK with getting coffee grit in your coffee, but other than that, it really is not a bad way to make coffee. It does require the beans be ground more coarse and can sometimes taste weaker because of that fact. I do prefer the simple one swift toss of the coffee cone from the Chemex as far as clean up goes so it is easier, stronger, smoother. Chemex is our choice.
