  • 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

  • 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!

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!

Finally Gave In

As the only coffee drinker in my household, I never felt I needed a Chemex. I use my Kalita Wave pour over and Aeropress most mornings, but love the ability to brew more when friends come over or want more than one cup. I wish I gave in and purchased this earlier!

Need more practice...

This is a very elegant coffee maker. The taste is great (also bought the hario hand grinder from eightouncecoffee). You need about 20 grams of coffee minimum for 2 small cups of coffee. The hard part is the pouring I find. I've been trying about 5 times now, but still feel like I need more practice, kind of like espresso making, just a whole lot different process!
