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 pre-folded 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 Chemex coffeemakers larger than 1 pint.
  • 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 Perfectly mated to my Chemex coffeemaker My mother had a Chemex when I was a child a LONG time ago and, in fact, it was the first time I ever tasted coffee. Nothing has approached that bloom of complex flavors since. I have had several electric coffeemakers and when my latest Mr. Coffee gave up the ghost after only 2 years, that did it! I HAD to get my own Chemex and I won't look back! We used the original square filters but I prefer the round. I will never use anything but a Chemex for my coffee again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Coffee Filters I bought filters for my glass Chemex coffee funnel. I got them at a better price than I could get on Amazon, and Prima sent me a free and really nice coffee mug which I love!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit I like the fit of the rounded filters vs. the square ones. Also, the bleached filters leave less of a paper taste than the non-bleached even with the pre-brew rinse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product The best filters for Chemex, as taste tests showed that bleached was better than non- bleached filters. Easy to use & discard. Delivered quickly by Prima.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chemex filters What can I say, Chemex is the best! I like the white filters; as others have stated the brown ones tinge the coffee with a bit of a cardboard flavor.
