  • Undoubtedly one of the most recognizable and elegant coffee makers available. The Chemex was designed in 1941 and has been making delicious coffee ever since.

    Its non-porous, heat-resistant glass construction, combined with proprietary, scientifically designed filters, produces coffee with clarity and complexity.

    In fact, it's the filters that are the star of the Chemex show. They are 20-30% heavier than other filters and remove even the finest sediment particles. The design of the filter facilitates the proper infusion time by regulating the filtration rate - about a 4 minute brew.

    One warning: As the filters are made of heavy paper, they require a full rinse with hot water. before brewing. to remove any paper taste. It's worth noting that there are also other filter options for the Chemex. If you want to try a re-usable filter that gives you a totally different, but equally delicious coffee, then check out the Able Kone

    Since the Chemex is made out of glass, you can see the coffee as it brews and, as it's a pour over method, you can also customize your particular brew method very easily.

    It comes with a polished wood collar and leather tie: the collar serving as an insulated handle around the middle of the coffeemaker.

    The Chemex is so cool that it has a permanent display in the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and is how James Bond makes his coffee. What other endorsements do you need?

    • 40oz (1182ml) capacity
    • Easy to clean - just remove filter and rinse through
    • Heat-resistant glass made in Germany
    • Requires Chemex filters
    • Super pretty!
    • Polished wood collar with leather tie made in the USA
  • This is our method, but it certainly isn’t the only one, so have a look online and play around to find what you like best.

    • Place a filter in the top of the Chemex
    • Pour hot/boiling water through until all of the filter is saturated.
    • Pour the water out of the Chemex, via the channel, ensuring that the filter remains in place
    • Grind and add coffee into the filter
    • Start timer and pour enough water (195-205º) to saturate the coffee
    • Swirl or stir coffee to fully saturate and let bloom for 45 seconds
    • Add rest of water pouring in a clockwise, circular motion, without pouring to the very edge or overfilling the filter
    • Once draw down is complete, remove the filter and the coffee is ready to serve!

Mmmm pour over

It’s a little old school but it is amazing coffee. I love making coffee using the pour over. The subtleties of the coffee is highlighted and the powdery residue from the French press gone...delicious. Looking forward to exploring more coffee beans. Eight ounce is knowledgeable and very helpful.

so nice to get back to pour over

for many years I used a coffee maker for speeding convenience in the mornings ,...okay but not great...during the COVID19 sanctions my son, home from university, and I decided to forgo drive throughs and coffee shops managing with walk up windows and start experimenting with good coffee at home after much research. hence the Chemex, a good burr grinder, a gooseneck kettle and some highly rated coffee beans .....a huge difference and a welcome addition to mornings
Eight Ounce has been a great source of information and because I am committed to buying Canadian we ordered many of our supplies from them...good prices, excellent service, informative write ups explaining the products and a perfectly sized Chemex to get us started ...5 stars

Nice Piece of Design History: A Perfect Morning Routine for Two

You're probably here for the beautiful design or the beautiful colour of the coffee from a Chemex. I have many different ways of brewing coffee available to me, but I really love the Chemex over all else for its clean cup. After doing my research, I settled on the "8 cup" version because I wanted to brew 2–4 mugs of coffee at a time. I now start every morning by sharing a cup of coffee with my partner before we start our day. We brew 500mL total which fills the brewer to the glass button on the side (2x 250mL mugs of coffee, using 30g coffee). I've brewed everything from 400mL to 800mL in this, and I'd recommend this version for 2–4 people. (If you're aiming to brew 1–2 people, check out the 6cup version).

Well worth the peace of mind ordering from Eight Ounce Coffee — you're backed by a great team of coffee professionals!

Perfect for Pour Over Beginner

My partner and I have always just used french press for coffee but we've always wanted to get into pour over. After some research, we thought Chemex is perfect for what we needed and after some further research, we found Eight Ounce Coffee, and it was the best! Eight Ounce not only had the Chemex in all sizes, it had the best price that we could find. The site also has all the other accessories that you need: filter, lid, cleaning brush and all with very reasonable prices (much better than Amazon). The best part is, the business is Canadian, so one more reason to support!! We will definitely be a long term customer and getting all of our coffee brewing related supplies from them!

Hi Nurbiya - thanks so much for your kind words, and thank you for supporting a Canadian company and not Amazon! :)

Usefull piece of gear

I bought a chemex a while ago (before discovering this AMAZING website). I do not regret my purchase at all!
I is a nice kit for poor over coffee making. You get exactly what you expect plus a little more since it's beautiful.

Tips: being a minimalist, my chemex doubles as a lot of purpose such as wine carafe, pitcher for hot summer days refreshing drinks.
It is perfect for what it's intended to be, and even more!

Thanks for your fantastic review, Cédric! We're so glad you're enjoying your Chemex, and thanks for finding us!
