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 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.
Chemex Bonded Natural Brown Coffee Filters, 100 count is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It proves there is a higher being If one wanted proof that there is a higher being, one need only gaze upon Jennifer Anniston. What more proof would one need. But if that was not enough, then surely the Chemex Bonded Natural Brown Coffee Filter would do the trick. Nestled inside the Chemex, it is like a soft floating cloud at sunset that delivers each precious drop of sublime coffee as if from the hand of that higher being. And you get a hundred of them. Yes it's a coffee filter - but it is also a reason to believe and to say Amen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't be cheap! You spend a fortune on good coffee, a burr grinder, a Chemex coffee maker. So why are you using paper towels instead of the filters designed for the Chemex? Trust me. There's a good reason they manufacture these. Your coffee will be perfect and that's what you want. Right?

You advertise free shipping but then at checkout nine dollars is added for postage. Is this misrepresentation?

Asked by: frank
Hi, Frank. Where did you see the FSU-100 Chemex Filters advertised with free shipping? Our website does not advertise them with free shipping.
