Chemex Spotted in Grand Rapids

As most of my good friends know, I’m very particular about my coffee.  My favorite brewing style is to use a Chemex slowdrip, which produces the best-tasting coffee in the world (provided you’re using good beans, of course).  It’s perhaps a bit more time-consuming than other brewing methods, but that’s partly the beauty of it.  The ritual of tying the leather cord around the wooden neck and using my thin-spouted enamel pot to slowly pour hot water over the grinds in a circular motion is all part of what makes the Chemex brewing process an essential part of my mornings.

So you can imagine my surprise when I walked into Madcap Coffee in Grand Rapids, MI earlier this week and saw that they had Chemex-brewed coffees on their menu.  I’ve yet to come across a cafe in NYC that offers this slow-drip delight so it was a real shock to the system to find it in Grand Rapids while on a business trip!  I went there a total of four times on my three-day trip so I guess you can say I felt right at home.  Anyway, will post more on the surprisingly wonderful things found in Grand Rapids in the coming weeks so stay tuned.
