Don't you hate how filters don't filter all the fine sediment that you find at the bottom of your coffee cup? When it comes to your Chemex coffee maker, they guarantee a 20-30% heavier filter than what you'd find elsewhere. These filters will not only trap the unwanted sediment and oils from getting into your cup o' joe, but it allows the proper infusion time by regulating the rate at which your coffee is brewed. The cone shape, guarantees consistent extraction and the paper material will not burst under the weight of your pour or disposal of your grounds. Pack of 100.
Best Answer:I have made Chemex coffee daily for about 45 years. I use 3-cup, 6-cup. 8-cup, 10-cup and 13-cup Chemex pots. It is my understanding that the half moons are specifically for the 3-cup pot. I would never use a half moon filter on a larger Chemex pot. The round and square filters work nicely for the 6, 8 and 10 cup pots. I Prefer the square filter for my 13-cup pots, because I can lift the used filter by the corners. There is very little dry rim remaining on the round filter after making coffee in the 13-cup pot. Given a choice I pick unbleached filters, but they are not always available. I would never use any other brand of filter in a Chemex pot.
This filter is designed to produce a pointed tip, purported better extraction results. the circle must be folded manually, the half just opened and fitted in the opening, haven't tried the square, but seems to me the half circle is the easiest to use.
I have had both circle and square and the filter medium is the same. The half moon I think you just have to form them up yourself. I prefer circle. Not sure why they even bother with the others as they pretty much all cost the same.
The only difference is the shape, the paper is the same. Some people find that the squares are easier to remove due to the points that rise above the carafe when the filter is placed in it. Personally, I now use squares.
Best Answer:I researched and found the Chemex 3 cup filters highly rated, so these are the ones I bought. I'm happy with them, haven't used them all but looking for non-bleached natural filters for next purchase.
Best Answer:Yes, just a matter how much coffee you plan to prepare, or if you use a smaller filter in a larger Brewer you would need to pour much slower. To me buy the filter you plan to use most, I make 12 oz for myself everyday so don't need a huge filter, unless I have company.
Best Answer:The Chemex filters are a different shape than the flat bottom Melitta filters and so I would not recommend them for a Bonavita. The Chemex filers are essentially a large circle folded into four that offers three sides of paper on one side and a point at the bottom, so to use them in a Bonavita you would need to have an additional fold at the bottom (to make the point fit). There would be a great deal of extra paper that will prevent proper extraction, so I don't think you would be pleased using them for a brewing method other than the Chemex. I hope this helps clarify!

Chemex paper filters are strong.Review by Deborah
The Chemex pre-folded circle filter is easy to use and does not break under pressure. Once your coffee is brewed, it's easy to lift out and discard. We dump the grinds down the disposal and rinse out the filter to recycle. The paper is thick and strong! Since the Chemex needs these filters to brew properly, the price is acceptable. The quality is excellent. (Posted on 7/24/2013)
