Produced by hand, the clarity of the blown glass and fine workmanship can be found in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, the Smithsonian, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
The Chemex Coffee Making System was developed by a chemist to achieve one result: Brew a perfect cup of coffee everytime. It's hourglass shaped flask is made entirely of glass, a chemically inert material that does not absorb odors or chemical residues.
The key to the Chemex method is the fractional extraction of only the desirable parts of the coffee bean. Chemex-Bonded filters make this possible. They are 20 to 30 percent heavier than other filters, and filter out all sediment. They have been specifically designed to give balanced performance with the Chemex Coffeemaker. The filter combines a very fine grain, required for holding back the coffee mud, with the right filtration speed (not too slow, not too fast) that promotes proper infusion. The filter is designed not to burst under the weight of the liquid during infusion, and not to break when lifting out the grinds. No other coffee filter is made to the Chemex specifications.
Please note: All of the Chemex coffeemakers are measured using 5 oz. as 1 cup.

These are great. If you have the patience for pour-over coffee (and I do), then get one. I love mine. Wouldn't change a thing. Only 1 downside. It's made of glass. Don't drop it on the floor.
