The Chemex has become a cult classic in coffee for a number of good reasons; namely, it tends to leave people wondering how such a simple vessel creates such nuanced flavors. Surely there is magic involved; and yet, with practice and patience all your favorite flavors can be recreated and shared with consistency.

First created in a chemistry lab back in 1941, this inventive design is a culmination of studied methods and tested concepts arranged to chemically produce the best flavors possible in coffee. The Chemex Special Filter works to absorb all excess oils, leaving behind a clean coffee stream brimming with all the aromatic subtleties that are so often lost in standard brewing. With these results, it's no wonder the Chemex is one of the most highly recommended brewers of its kind.

  • Well Designed - This mostly goes without saying, unless you've never heard it before. Expertly made using the simplest of materials, and a scientific pedigree to boot!
  • No outlet required - This brewer can be taken along anywhere and will work just the same as it does from home.
  • High Quality - Its iconic hourglass shape with near seamless glass is constructed of high quality, heat resistant, borosilicate glass and uses ecologically sustainable rubber wood.
  • FragilĂ© - Make no mistake, the Chemex is definitely made of glass. As such, it requires a little extra care to ensure this brewer does not break.
How Does it Compare?

Check out the Chemex Glass Handle Series if you'd rather not think about removing the Classic Series' wood centerpiece when cleaning.

The Chemex Classic Coffeemaker is a brewer and a server in one, not separated into two pieces like many other brewers.

Tips and Tricks

We suggest trying different filters to see how flavor is affected ( sure to try the white filter version)
