Conventional coffee brewers can develop a build-up of old coffee oils inside, resulting in a bitter tasting cup. However, aside from the paper filters it uses, the Chemex® is made entirely of glass; making it the easiest coffee brewing device to keep clean.
The simplicity of the Chemex®, along with the clean, full-flavored coffee it produces, and the ability to physically interact with the brewing process, make it one of our top choices for brewing an excellent cup of coffee.
The Chemex® brews eight 4oz. cups of coffee and does not include filters.
It is also part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
