Flash Brewing Steps
STEP 2

Put a coffee filter into your Chemex and scoop 40 grams of Starbucks® Breakfast Blend into it.​

STEP 3

Boil 300 grams of water and pour onto coffee, starting in the middle then slowly working your way out. Pouring slowly while trying to wet all the grinds is key.​

STEP 4

Let the coffee brew.

STEP 5

Once the water all makes its way through the grounds and melts the ice, your coffee is all brewed! Now all you have to do is pour it into the glass of your choice and enjoy. ​

QUICK TIP

Starbucks® Roast and Ground Coffees are already the perfect size grind for this brewing method, so if you already have a bag, no need to grind by hand!
