Occasionally, I use a plastic funnel I bought in Tuscany at The Coop supermarket on the A-1 motorway with a Melita filter. That works well too

I went to Blue bottle about a year ago - had a cup of Chemex brewed beans - and wham! I was hooked.
I prefer the other model - with the glass handle - it's more functional than this original, but both make great coffee
The process is tedious and I have to reheat the coffee in the microwave even if I pour a cup immediately after brewing
Questions & Answers
It takes a few minutes more that it would with an automatic coffee maker, but it's worth it, particularly on the weekends. I love the precision of the coffee-making method and the delicious results.
How does coffee made with the Chemex drip maker compare with that made from a French Press? I do know that a French Press coffee maker is a mess to clean and I'd expect the Chemex to be to be less but how does the resulting coffee compare?
A follow-on to the question about reheating: can you put the carafe in a microwave oven?
I drink my coffee from a 10 oz. mug, so I only get 4 mugs of coffee from a full 40 oz. brew. Actually, my wife does not drink coffee and I brew 500ml (17 oz) for myself each morning. That's about a mug and a half.
Enjoy your brew.
But, if you mean 1 or 2 mugs, which hold about 10 ounces, you would need the 6 cup Brewer.
I drink about 500 ml (17 oz) each morning with my breakfast, so the 6 cup would suit me as well, but sometimes I am making coffee for more than 1 person. I use the 8 cup Chemex. It can make up to 40 oz at a time, but it does a great job on my 500 ml portion each morning as well.
Good luck. Use freshly roasted beans. Grind them yourself. Measure carefully. And enjoy your coffee--morning or anytime.
There is a cozy made to fit the carafe, which you can find with an internet search. In fact there is a review that compared the temperature over time with and without the cozy that said the it kept the coffee warmer longer, but it did not say how long it kept it at drinking temperature.
The problem with a heat plate is that it will give coffee that horrible burned taste after some time.
What I do if I am not going to serve enough coffee at one time to use it all while it is drinking temperature, is to make the coffee in the Chemex and then pour it into a glass lined thermal carafe. I find that this keeps my coffee (about 525ml) hot while I eat a leisurely breakfast (about 30 minutes).
