Few products can match the flawless blending of design and function that is the standard of the Chemex. The Chemex is elegance par excellence and for this, it has earned a place in the permanent collection of the The Corning Museum of Glass in New York - the world's largest glass museum. The Chemex was also selected by the Illinois Institute of Technology as one of the 100 best designed products of the modern era.
A chic and timeless one-piece made of high calibre, heat-resistant glass, the Chemex coffeemaker is a classic model dressed up in a polished wood collar, finished with a leather tie. Not just decorative, the collar serves as an insulated handle.
Paired with the Chemex-Bonded Coffee Filter, the Chemex makes clear, pure and flavorful coffee free of bitterness and sediment - coffee only comes in contact with the filter designed specifically for the Chemex and the carafe's non-porous glass. The Chemex is also perfect for iced coffee and coffee flavouring for gourmet recipes.
Filters are sold separately. Our full range of Chemex filters and accessories are available for viewing here. Note: the glass stopper to preserve heat is especially recommended.

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 filter's thickest portion toward the pouring spout.
2. Using Regular or Automatic Grind coffee only, measure one rounded tablespoon of coffee per 5 oz (148ml) 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, while maintaining 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!
