The Chemex Classic Coffee Maker is the epitome of simplicity--there are no parts to plug in and no settings to program. This inventive coffee preparation features the most chemically correct method for brewing a robust cup of coffee. The Chemex carafe with a wooden collar and tie is constructed from heat-resistant glass and does not absorb odors or chemical residues. It provides a clean extraction for your daily dose of caffeine.
A Note About Coffee & Cups
Let us break it down for you: Although 8 ounces equals a cup in the baking world, a US cup of coffee is measured at 6 ounces and a European cup of coffee is measured at 4.25 ounces. This is why we sometimes list ounces to paint a more accurate picture of capacity. And what do you know--The Chemex instructions measure coffee in 5 ounce cups--go figure!

To me, when it's brewed in a gold filter or in a paper filter that hasn't been treated with calcium to make it "white", fresh well roasted, not overroasted, shade-grown coffee, from the kind of beans I got to have coffee from when I was growing up in Colombia, it's GOOD COFFEE.
I can't wax all "foodie" or "coffeehead" about esters or hints of fruit or smoke or something like that, because I have NEVER EVER in my life tasted any such thing. Good coffee isn't bitter, though it may not be sugarysweet. It has a "coffee" smell to it, NEVER a burned smell. It may have oils and esters in it but it doesn't taste *oily. It needn't be brewed so strong it'll stand a hammer and a bag of nails upright in it. In fact it shouldn't be overpowering. It should be just right.
I'm sorry if this doesn't make you happy. That's the taste a good freshly roasted, relatively freshly harvested bean coffee is going to taste like if brewed through either a gold or a natural paper filter with clean water (filtered if necessary) into a Chemex pot
I hope, if you acquire a pot, you enjoy the little bit of 'ceremony" that brewing some coffee into it will bring you, and that the taste is worth tuning out the world for a few minutes just to think pleasant and calming thoughts before going on with your day. Feb 6, 2014
If you're into wine, I'd be like going from a Merlot (heavy body) to a Cab Sauv (medium body).
I'm not really a coffee tasting/bean expert, so take that into consideration as well. Feb 6, 2014

I brew anywhere from 3 to the full 6 and every time it's consistent and delicious. There are tons of helpful videos on YouTube you can check out and find your own unique brewing method. Lot's of great tips and tricks on there (i.e., adding a pinch of salt to dry grounds for better flavor), another tip is to heat up your milk/creamer before pouring your coffee, it stays warm this way instead of going cold from the milk. I highly recommend watching those videos, I've learned so much myself! Hope this helps! :D Jul 12, 2012
Check back with us soon-- marketing is considering adding additional sizes of the Chemex to our product offering! Other options for single cups would be the Hario or Kalita dripper, or the Hario Drip Pot. Hope this helps! Dec 6, 2012

Very smooth, very delicious coffee. I've been enjoying a french press for years but I love Chemex coffee even more. Thanks!

We love our Chemex, we thought we made the best coffee before until we drank coffee from the Chemex. A very smooth delicious cup of coffee. Did a blind taste test at a dinner party and hands down Chemex coffee was chosen over our old way of brewing.

Excellent cup of coffeeReview by Lizzy F.
Price Value Quality
Love the Chemex, we thought we were drinking good coffee until we bought the Chemex. We did a blind taste comparison against our usual brew method and picked the chemex. We then had a group of people over and did the same blind taste test against our old brew method and they all picked the Chemex coffee. Hands down a better cup of coffee, smooth, velvety, and very delicious.
