Known as a pristine coffeemaker, Chemex® employs all of the chemically correct methods for brewing. Full bodied, richer flavor, from less coffee and as strong as you like without bitterness - that's what the Chemex® filter gives you.

  • Chemex filters are 20-30% heavier than competitive brands. They remove even the finest sediment particles, as well as undesirable oils and fats.
  • The formulation of the filter permits the proper infusion time by regulating the filtration rate - not too slow, not too fast.
  • Good infusion of the coffee grounds gives coffee a richer flavor while at the same time making possible precise fractional extraction.
  • 100 filters per pack.
  • The Chemex filter is folded into a cone shape, exactly as in laboratory techniques. This assures uniform extraction since the water filters through all the grounds on its way to the apex of the cone.
  • Guaranteed not to burst under the weight of the liquid during filtration, and not to break when lifting out the grounds.
  • For all 1 pint Chemex coffeemakers.

  • 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chemex Half Moon Filters The small Chemex coffee maker is wonderful to behold! Aesthetically pleasing, it evokes the image of a test tube. Without the wood ring in the middle and the leather :0( tassle at the top, this little gem is a constant delight in the preparation of coffee. Easy to keep clean and visually appealing anywhere you care to place it in your kitchen!!! The Half Moon filters are a snap to fold and coffee poured through each filter is delectable! The small Chemex coffee pot is not sold at most stores, so Prima Coffee Equipment is the place to order it from. They are knowledgeable, the service is fast and you even get a complimentary coffee cup that doesn't say Made In China!!!

What country is this product made in? Is the material bleached or non-bleached? We are concerned about toxins used in paper products. Thanks

Asked by: OHeaven
Chemex products are manufactured up in Massachusetts. Chemex uses an oxygen based process to turn their filters white. No bleach is involved.
