"Great product, perfect coffee"
I am a coffee snob: very picky about my coffee, how it is made, the beans, the temperature.....the details matter. Being from Seattle I'm exposed to amazing coffee shops and one of my favorites introduced me to Chemex. I like a pour over coffee from time-to-time and wanted to give this one a try at home. I have to say, it's easy, there is a real science to the amount of coffee, the water and even the temperature. Simply measure the coffee, get the water almost to a boil, pour to wet the fresh ground beams, the pour more to finish, that's it. No bitter coffee, perfect flavor and all you need is this chemex, a grinder and a kettle. I would recommend it to anyone that enjoys a delicious fresh brewed coffee. You will love it

Using Chemex Since 1976
I use my Chemex with the filters and Italian Dark Roast coffee ground to espresso grade at my local coffee store. I put the coffee in a thermos. It makes me feel like I'm in Italy every morning.

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

Brews good cup of coffee!
This coffeemaker has been around for years but purchased this one recently for purposes of making 2-3 cups at a time instead of 6-8 or one-at-a-time. Brews excellent coffee. I followed recommendation of using medium grind and really recommend using their compatible filters. The result is excellent coffee and free of any residue.
October 10, 2013
I love this coffee pot. The coffee is so much better than what I get from my electric drip pot. I can make it really strong without bitterness or oiliness. Delicious! I would, however, skip the little $10.00 lid which I bought. The coffee really needs to be put into a thermal carafe right away to stay hot so the lid turns out to be completely useless. Great pot, forget the lid.

Simply the best.
The coffee made with this device tastes like an entirely different beverage from those made with other machines. My wife and I will never make coffee with a machine again. Anything worthwhile is worth the wait. Definitely wet the beans initially and leave alone for 30 seconds to let them "bloom", as instructed. To speed up the drip process, try keeping the max amount of water in the filter to keep up the water pressure.

The Journey
I love the process and especially the finished product!
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

Better Living Through Chemistry!
This thing is easy to use, dishwasher safe, and it makes the cleanest, purest, brightest coffee I've ever had. Added bonus: Since I started using this brew method, I've been able to cut the sugar I normally use in each cup by half. I agree that this is all due in large part to the filters specifically designed for this device, but hey, a top-line fighter jet requires top-line jet fuel, right? So overall, I couldn't be more happy.
April 14, 2015
Excellent for one or two cups.
I bought this to make myself one or two cups during the weekdays and the coffee is delicious. However if I had to use this on the weekends when my husband likes a whole pot of coffee, I would abandon the Chemex.

The process is tedious and I have to reheat the coffee in the microwave even if I pour a cup immediately after brewing

This is my favorite way to make coffee. Much clearer flavor than the French Press and none of the grit. I can't recommend the 3 cup version though because it breaks too easily.

Darren T on Jan 1, 2016
Chemex coffee makers make a fine cup of coffee and this 6-cup version is great for two people. I have since purchased the glass stopper top and wire trivet to keep the coffee piping hot.

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.

Comparison of Chemex with french press

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 shopper on Mar 21, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The Chemex and the French Press are two totally different devices. The French Press keeps the natural oils from the coffee, whereas the Chemex uses a filter and you lose most of those oils. The Chemex is easier to clean, but uses a lot more coffee per cup compared to the French Press. It all depends on what you like. I think that if you like the flavor of a French Press, then you'll want some method that keeps the oils. If you like the flavor of drip brewed coffee then the Chemex will come close
Can you reheat by placing on a stove burner? Gas? Electric?
A shopper on Jan 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: From the Chemex FAQs:Because the Chemex is glass, it should not be placed directly on the range of a stove with exposed coils. It may be placed on a glass covered stove range. For exposed coils utilize the Chemex wire grid
What about microwave?

A follow-on to the question about reheating: can you put the carafe in a microwave oven?
A shopper on Apr 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This coffeemaker is not microwave safe.
Are there cup markings on the carafe?
A shopper on Sep 26, 2013
BEST ANSWER: No, there are no cup markings on this carafe
can filters other than chemex be used?
A shopper on Jun 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You could still brew "coffee" using other filters and the Chemed, but the real answer is No. Chemex filters are around $7 for a box of 100 filters. They are designed for the vase shape and filter out more of the oils than typical coffee filters. The Chemex filter plays perhaps the most important role in the flavor profile of Chemed brewed coffee.
is a 40ounce chemex equal 6 cups of coffee?
valerie c on Nov 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: A "cup" of coffee is usually is measured as 5 oz. So the 40 oz Chemex is an 8 cup brewer. Of course 40/6 is 6 and 2/3. So, if your cup measures between 6 and 7 oz., you will get six cups.

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.
Where is the Chemex coffee pot made? Information on this site is contradictory--under "Description" it says they're made in Taiwan, under "Full Story" it says they're made in Massachusetts. Thank you!
A shopper on Jan 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Chemex says that their coffee makers are manufactured in Massachusetts. They could be lying, but it would be a foolish thing to do (lie, that is)... You can read about it on Chemex's website in the "about us" section.
It has a wooden neck/grip. Can the unit be washed in a dishwasher or must it be hand washed? How well does the wood part withstand washing over time?
Christine D on Mar 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The wooden grip is easily removed - it's tied on with the leather strap. as long as you keep water off the leather, the grip and leather will last for some time. I haven't personally used a dishwasher to clean it and would be hesitant to do so as the Chemex itself is bottom heavy (top heavy, if you turn it upside down). Serious Eats says that if you do use a dishwasher to clean a Chemex that you should rinse it several times afterwards... hope this is helpful.
If I am looking to make only 1-2 cups of coffee which size should I buy?
A shopper on Jan 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Firstly, that depends on what you mean by "a cup." Chemex and most other coffee brewer makers considers a cup to be five ounces. If you agree with that, you would need only the 3 cup Chemex.

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.
what type of filters does this pot take?
A shopper on Dec 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Chemex has their own branded filters that I have been able to find at some coffee shops. They are not pricey
is there something that can be used to keep the coffee hot? Something along the lines of a heat plate
monique s on May 31, 2015
BEST ANSWER: From Chemex website: "The Chemex can be placed directly on a glass top stove or over a low gas flame to be kept warm. If you have an electric stove with exposed coils, you may purchase the wire grid (TKG) which can be placed between the coils and the Chemex to protect the coffeemaker. The coils should be set to a low temperature."
