    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?

  • The Eight Ounce Method

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

    The CHEMEX® Method

    1. Get Into The Grind
      Grind your favorite whole bean coffee to a medium coarse ground.
    2. Filter Up
      Open a CHEMEX® Bonded Coffee Filter into a cone shape so that one side of the cone has three layers, and place it into the top of the CHEMEX® Coffeemaker. The thick three-layer portion should cover the pouring spout.
    3. The Scoop
      Put one rounded tablespoon of ground coffee for every 5 oz. cup into the filter cone. Feel free to use more if you prefer it stronger; our CHEMEX® Coffeemaker brewing process eliminates bitterness and acidity.
    4. Let It Bloom
      Once you have brought the appropriate amount of water to a boil, remove it from the heat and allow it to stop boiling vigorously. Pour a small amount of water in a circular motion over the coffee grounds to wet them, and wait for about 30 seconds for the grounds to "bloom".
    5. First Pour
      After the grounds bloom, slowly pour the water over the grounds while keeping the water level well below the top of the CHEMEX® Coffeemaker (a quarter inch or more).
    6. Brew On
      Slowly pour the remaining water over the grounds, using a circular or back-and-forth motion as you pour to ensure an even saturation of the coffee.
    7. Toss The Filter
      Once the desired amount of coffee is brewed, lift the filter with spent grounds out of the brewer and discard. Our filters are biodegradable and compostable.
    8. Enjoy The Perfect Cup
      Pour your freshly made coffee into your CHEMEX® mug and indulge in the flavor.

The perfect size Chemex for sharing coffee

I've used Chemex brewers of various sizes and shapes, but this one makes the perfect amount of coffee.

I'm not sure where Chemex gets its cup measurements from, but I find the 8-cup size is perfect for brewing two mugs of coffee in the morning to share. It's easy to use a smaller dry dose to brew for one, but the other sizes don't do as good of a job making coffee for two.

I recommend anyone in a multiple-coffee-a-morning household to go for the 8-cup rather than a smaller size.

Classic for a reason!

Beautiful way to brew coffee in larger batches, while maintaining great taste. My partner and I got tired of using an Aeropress when we had guests over, and this is the perfect solution! It’s nice for just the two of us, as well. Love a great pour over coffee!

Great Coffee Every Day

This is my daily coffee method for getting great tasting cups each morning. The Chemex is a brewer I highly recommend for anyone looking for a clean smooth cup of coffee. Eight Ounce Coffee is my go to for coffee gear - fair prices and great delivery service.
