Known as a pristine coffeemaker, Chemex® employs all of the chemically correct methods for brewing. Also available with a built-in glass handle, click here: Classic Glass Chemex With Handle,

  • 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.
  • Wood Collar Style includes a polished wood collar with leather tie.
  • Glass Handle Style 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.
  • Also available in 8 cup, 6 cup, and 3 cup volumes.
  • 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!

  • ~ 48-54 grams of coffee - medium-coarse grind

Chemex

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.

Excellent quality, fantastic coffee!

We've had our Chemex for about two weeks now and absolutely LOVE it. My wife thought she would have preferred the original model with the wood and leather "handle", but we went with the integrated glass handle due to ease of cleaning! As long as we rinse with more coffee-temperature water immediately after, a rest on our drying rack leaves it nice and refreshed. Of course, every few times it gets a full wash... We use the oxidized, folded circle filters (definitely require a thorough rinse first - both to remove any papery taste and to "adhere" it to the sides of the upper chamber before putting the grounds in), approx. 850-900 mL of ~200 degree water, and 50 g of medium coarse grounds. Our Chemex makes the smoothest, most satisfying cup of coffee. My wife literally refuses to go back to the Keurig machine and, in a pinch, is back to a Melitta pour-over for a quick single cup when the Chemex would be too involved (you do have to stand there with a goose-neck kettle slowly pouring water evenly over the grounds for about three minutes). Can't blame her. This thing's amazing.

Chemex with a handle!

I ORDERED THIS A WEEK AGO AND IT ARRIVED WITHIN A FEW DAYS. WE HAVE BEEN CONCERNED ABOUT USING THE PLASTIC MELITTA AND FELT THERE IS A "FUNNY" TASTE. THIS MAKES GREAT TASTING COFFEE AND THE HANDLE MAKES IT SECURE TO POUR.

Wish I'd got this 5 coffee makers ago.

I use less coffee and it tastes better not bitter. Sounds like a paid advertisement but frankly I could care less if you buy this or not, but I'm sure glad I did. I thought the filters would be difficult to use...they're not. I thought the carafe would be awkward to use...it isn't. I thought the clean up would be hard to do...but my wife says it isn't. Happy I bought it.

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.

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.

beautiful coffee

Picked up the 10 cup w/ Kone stainless steel filter and the two are a winning combination. Not sure it makes noticeably better coffee than other pour over systems but it makes making coffee better. Chemex carafe is elegant way to serve up our morning coffee.

Function and form working together in harmony!

For the coffee lover or geek this is a must-have piece of equipment. The pour-over method affords the coffee drinker a lot of flexibility in terms of bean choice, grind and the amount of water to use. Used in conjunction with a good burr grinder, good beans and good water, you can't miss. Easy to use and just as easy to clean up.

Worth it!

The Chemex preserves the natural flavor of the coffee beans. Do a taste test and you'll taste the difference. If you're a coffee lover, get one.

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.

Makes consistently good coffee

I've used an 8-cup Chemex pot for decades. I bought the 10-cup pot because we need that one extra 10-ounce cup of coffee on the weekends. I thought the website was a little tricky to use for ordering, but the pot was packaged very carefully and delivery was prompt.

Makes outstanding coffee.

One of my first recollection of tasting coffee as a kid was in the late 50's from a carafe just like this one.  I have used this coffee maker for over six years but had to get a replacement because I carelessly cracked my first one.  Makes a perfect cup of coffee.

Excellent product

It arrived yesterday, I was so happy. It's a very beautiful product and I love to brew my coffee with it. My g/f bought it for me to replaced the old one that broken. Now, I can enjoy my coffee every morning again.
