Chemex (8 cup)
Chemex, Manual Brewers, Pourover Brewer
The Chemex is an elegant and simple pour-over coffee brewer that offers a very clean cup profile and highlights the natural fruit notes and acidity in your coffee.
It is also a truly classic piece of modern art. The Chemex company has been making the exact same brewer for more than 70 years, and the classic design has earned the brewer a place in the permanent collections of both the New York Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) and the Smithsonian Museum.
The Chemex package offers everything you need for a great coffee brewing experience. Inside, you will find the Chemex 8 cup classic brewer, crafted with high-quality borosilicate glass. It features a stylish polished wood collar and leather tie, which acts as a convenient insulated handle around the middle of the coffeemaker. In addition, the package includes specially designed Chemex filters. These filters are noticeably thicker, weighing 20-30% more than other filters, and are capable of removing even the finest sediment particles, ensuring a clean and smooth cup of coffee. However, it is important to note that the package does not include any bags of fresh coffee. These can be purchased separately to complete your coffee brewing setup.
The proprietary Chemex filters are a big part of the reason that this brew method produces exceptionally clean and complex coffee. The filters are much heavier than others and remove even the finest sediment and slow the brewing process down somewhat as well. We recommend giving the filter a thorough rinse with hot water prior to brewing to remove any potential taste transfer.
And yes, the Chemex filters are indeed biodegradable and compostable. This means that after use, you can easily discard them and they will naturally break down and return to the environment without causing harm. So, when you brew your coffee using a Chemex, you can enjoy the convenience of using these filters, knowing that they are eco-friendly and can be disposed of responsibly.
