Known as a pristine coffeemaker, Chemex® employs all of the chemically correct methods for brewing.

  • Simple function and visual elegance combine for the optimum extraction of full rich-bodied coffee.
  • This hourglass shaped flask is made entirely of glass, a chemically inert material that does not absorb odors or chemical residues.
  • Capacity: 10 cup/50 oz.
  • Includes a graceful but sturdy glass handle.
  • Has no moving parts and will work forever, unless it is dropped or in some other way destroyed.
  • Chemex Brewing Instructions:
  • 1. Open the Chemex-Bonded® Coffee Filter into a cone. One side should have three layers. Place the cone in the top of your coffeemaker with the thick portion toward the pouring spout.
  • 2. Using Regular or Automatic Grind coffee only, put one rounded tablespoon of coffee per 5 oz. cup into the filter cone. If you prefer stronger coffee, use more; there is never any bitterness in coffee brewed using the Chemex® method.
  • 3. When the water is boiling, remove it from the heat until it stops boiling vigorously. It should now be at about 200ºF, a perfect brewing temperature. Pour a small amount of water over the coffee grounds, just enough to wet them without floating. This is important because it allows the grounds to "bloom," so the desirable coffee elements can be released.
  • 4. After this first wetting simply pour more water, soaking the grounds each time, but keeping the water level well below the top of the coffeemaker. Once the desired amount of coffee is brewed, dispose of the spent grounds by lifting the filter out of the coffeemaker. And that's it! You are now ready to enjoy a perfect cup of coffee!

The Chemex® coffeemaker was invented by chemist Peter J. Schlumbohm, Ph.D., in 1941. Being a doctor of Chemistry, he was very familiar with laboratory apparati and the methods of filtration and extraction. He applied this knowledge when designing his coffeemaker by modifying the laboratory funnel, adding an "air channel" and a pouring spout. He added the "air channel" so the air displaced by the liquid dripping into the vessel could easily escape past the laboratory filter paper. Over the years, these items have been recognized as outstanding examples of American Design. In 1956, the Chemex coffee maker was selected by the Illinois Institute of Technology as one of the best-designed items of modern times, the only coffee brewer chosen for the award. The coffee maker and the water kettle are in the permanent collections of museums such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Smithsonian, the Philadelphia Museum and the Corning Museum located in Corning, NY. When it comes to exceptionally tasting coffee made from a simple but elegant process, the Chemex has no rival.
Chemex Classic Series Glass Coffeemaker with Handle, 10 cup capacity is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from exscellent product I originally bought the 6 cups one and after a couple month, I decided to get the 10 cups since it was not big enough. I really enjoy it. It is pleasing to the eye, made of a single piece of glass. I use it directly on the stove to keep the coffee warm. In combination with the Able kone filter it is a perfect dip brewer. The pouring into the cup need to be done slowly to avoid spill. if you do it at the right speed, the flow is perfect. a little too fast and the coffee can spill around. The quality is impeccable, made in USA, and a good design. No moving part no part to loose. Can also be used as a pitcher for water or juice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from At last - I can now make a superior cup of coffee Chemex is the God of Coffee. From one who suffered through canned coffee grounds, who was tortured with instant coffee, who survived decaffeinated coffee, I have finally reached nirvana. All hail Chemex - the God of Coffee...who achieved that God-like status with the miracle of the Chemex. If you want to know what it is going to be like in the after-life, you do not have to wait any longer. Chemex is waiting to give you a taste of heaven.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Possibly the simplest pour over brewer around What could be simpler than having the pour over filter holder and pot in one well-constructed design? Granted, on a per unit basis the filters are around twice as expensive as other cone filters, but they are much thicker and permit a slower brew. The result is unrivaled.
