The Chemex was designed in 1941 and had been making delicious coffee ever since. Its non-porous, heat-resistant glass construction, combined with proprietary, scientifically designed filters, produces coffee with clarity and complexity. As a result, the Chemex coffee brewer produces a very clean, refreshing cup of coffee.
This is due to the conical shape of the top of the brewer and thick, natural paper filters that fold to a point. The coffee brews in a thin stream from this point, creating a clean solution that often highlights the fruity notes of exceptional fresh-roasted coffee.
Chemex's elegant design has won it a permanent spot in the Museum of Modern Art collections: the Smithsonian and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. It makes it a beautiful serving vessel as well as a brilliant brewer.
Each Chemex includes a hand-blown glass carafe with a cone-shaped top and a comfortable leather-tied, wooden collar.
It comes with a polished wood collar and leather tie: the collar serves as an insulated handle around the middle of the coffeemaker.
1. Get into the Grind
Grind your favourite whole bean coffee to medium-coarse ground.
2. Filter up
Open a CHEMEX Bonded Coffee Filter into a cone shape so that one side of the cone has three layers, and place it on the top of the CHEMEX Coffeemaker. The thick three-layer portion should cover the pouring spout.
3. The scoop
Put one rounded tablespoon of ground coffee for every 5 oz. Cup into the filter cone. Feel free to use more if you prefer it stronger; our CHEMEX Coffeemaker brewing process eliminates bitterness and acidity.
4. Let it bloom
Once you have brought the appropriate amount of water to a boil, please remove it from the heat and allow it to stop boiling vigorously. Pour a small amount of water in a circular motion over the coffee grounds to wet them, and wait for about 30 seconds for the grounds to “bloom.”
5. First pour
After the grounds bloom, slowly pour the water over the grounds while keeping the water level well below the top of the CHEMEX Coffeemaker (a quarter-inch or more).
6. Brew on
Slowly pour the remaining water over the grounds, using a circular or back-and-forth motion as you pour to ensure even saturation of the coffee.
7. Toss the filter
Once the desired amount of coffee is brewed, lift the filter with spent grounds out of the brewer and discard it. Our filters are biodegradable and compostable.
8. Enjoy the perfect cup
Pour your freshly made coffee into your CHEMEX mug and indulge in the flavour.
