The best cup you've ever had, every time you have it
The Chemex® coffeemaker is an elegant, one-piece, hourglass shaped vessel made of high quality, heat resistant glass. The traditional model comes to you with a polished wood collar and leather tie. The collar serves as an insulated handle around the middle of the coffeemaker.
Few products in this century can match the flawless blending of design and function of the Chemex®. Its visual elegance has earned it a place in the permanent collection of New York's Corning Museum of Glass. The Chemex® coffeemaker was also selected by the Illinois Institute of Technology as one of the 100 best designed products of modern times.
The Chemex® coffeemaker, together with Chemex-Bonded® Coffee Filter, makes perfect coffee. Clear, pure, flavorful and without bitterness or sediment every time. The coffee only comes in contact with the scientifically designed filter and non-porous glass. With the Chemex® method, you can make coffee as strong as you like without bitterness. Perfect for iced coffee and coffee flavoring for gourmet recipes. Because of its purity, Chemex® brewed coffee can be covered and stored in the refrigerator for reheating...without losing its flavor!

How to brew the best cup you have, everytime you have it
Traditional Filter Folding Instructions
Step One: Fold the Chemex filter in half. Then fold in half again, bringing the two corners together. Place your finger between the 3rd and 4th layer and open into a funnel.
Step Two: Place the funnel in the top portion of the Chemex coffeemaker, with 3 layers on the groove side. The groove is an air vent (as well as the pouring spout) and allows air to escape from the lower portion of the coffeemaker, letting the coffee filter at the proper rate. Placing the filter as directed prevents vent clogging and facilitates filtration.
Step Three: Put coffee in the filter paper cone. Use one heaping tablespoon per cup of coffee (adjust to personal taste if needed after first brew).
Step Four: Refer to the brew instructions for remaining steps.
