DO NOT opt for the unbleached (brown) filters as they impart a VERY strong and unpleasant taste and smell of paper. Go with the bleached ones unless you like your coffee to taste like the paper towels you would find in a gas station bathroom (I'm serious, that's exactly what your coffee will taste like if you use the unbleached filters.)
As far as I can tell, Chemex filter paper removes the slightly sour/acid taste from coffee, that I find objectionable. This, in turn, lets through the complex bitter/sweet flavors and allows me to taste them more fully.
For what it's worth, I grind my dark roasted beans right before using them, grinding 6 cups worth for wife and myself. We've also made our own ceramic coffee pots that have the same size top, to hold the Chemex filters. Works just as well as the Chemex pots. Now, if I can just find an auto-brew device that can use Chemex filters for work...
Coffee also has substances that simply taste bad. We normally think about just keeping the solids out of our cup. There are many more things that can ruin the product of good beans properly roasted and clean water at the right temperature. I don't claim to know what they all are, but one for certain is oils. Chemex filters capture the oils that can spoil the taste and spoil the coffee itself. I know you purists will scoff, but I love coffee. Sometimes I don't finish my cup of commute coffee and leave the cup on the dash. If I've parked in the sun, I can come out after work to a couple swallows of hot coffee that still tastes fresh...the oils that go rancid are missing from Chemex coffee. It also holds very well in a vacuum carafe.
My son-in-law has some very expensive coffee machine. He was marveling at how great the Chemex coffee is from my old school pot compared to his machine. The filters not only capture the undesirables, they also control the pace of the brew. It's important to sloooow down the brewing to squeeze all of the good out of the beans.
Get a Chemex pot and some filters and you will taste the best coffee you've ever had - every day.
One thing you'll notice when you get the filters is that they are really just one big round sheet of paper that's folded over several times to make a cone. So when you open it, one side of the folded cone has three sheets and one side will have only one sheet. If you put the three sheets over the pour spout, it will be stronger and won't mold as easily to the shape of the spout. This means you will have a little area for air to escape as you pour over water.
If a little air can't escape, the whole thing will start bubbling at the edges and spit out coffee everywhere. It makes a bit of a mess until you lift the filter to let the air escape (just imagine that you have an airtight space with water filling it slowly and the air that's displaced has no place to go except out the top).
This still happens to me time to time even if I have the side positioned right, but it makes it much less frequent.
In my opinion, and I have been drinking coffee since I was 13yrs old,and have tried and used many different coffeemakers and espresso machines throughout the years, this is the BEST.
I did experiment with the other filters, as I was out and waiting for these. I had to use 2 and the full body flavor of the coffee wasn't there entirely as it is with the chemex filters.
They are also great for any other coffeemaker, I am sure.
I highly recommend these, there are many in a box, and are perfect for that wonderful cup of coffee anytime during the day.
