Chemex pour-over coffeemakers have been putting their automatic brethren to shame for upwards of half a century. That said, we’re sympathetic if you’re too lazy to manually make your coffee every day. Fortunately, there’s now a fix in the Chemex Ottomatic. This machine fits most any Chemex coffeemaker and precisely manages key brewing variables including pre-infusion, contact time, and temperatures of both the water (Specialty Coffee Industry’s recommendation) and carafe (International Coffee Organizations’ recommendation). Its Greedy Cup Sprayhead Technology even wets the entire coffee bed and adds water in pulses, resulting in a perfect extraction time and time again.
