Beginning With Chemex!

I am trying to get learned in the ways of The Chemex. So far I have had a bunch of coffee's at home and some work better than others in a Chemex. I wonder why? I have noticed that coffees with flavor profiles that are "fruitier" and lighter in roast fair better in Mr. C-mex. It makes sense that certain coffees work better in different brewing methods.
I have found, but will continue to expand on this theory, that coffees that are darker/smokier tend to be ashy and dirty. I would totally recommend the Columbia La Golondrina or the sun-dried, natural Ethiopian from sidamo, both roasted by Counter Culture. Also had Stumptown's Don Pachi in the chemex and it was totally awesome.
Soon I will post a drawing of how to make Chemex along with tips and tricks.

Here's a Picture of Everyman's favorite actress, Meryl Streep and our least favorite actress jennifer aniston, who's name should never be capitalized.
When I asked Meryl if she wanted a coffee she politely declined. Which made sense seeing as how she was about to do an on camera interview right there in the lobby! The interview is for an up and coming documentary on Austin Pendleton. A well respected actor and director of several plays. One of which was the Classic Stage Company's Uncle Vanya. Everyman is in the lobby of the Classic Stage Company. We see a lot of action being in the lobby of a famed New York theater company. Load-ins, Load-outs, the stars coming to watch the plays or even coming to rehearse. Everyone from Al Pachino and Lou Reed to well...Meryl Streep. It's just one more day in the life!
