Do not place the Chemex Water Kettle directly on an electric coil stove top. For use with an electric coil stove top we recommend using our Chemex stainless steel wire grid (TKG) between the kettle and the coils to prevent breakage and personal harm.
Chemex Glass Coffeemaker
Overview of Product
Chemex delivers the purest flavor experience.
Made of non-porous Borosilicate glass which will not absorb odors or chemical residues.
Chemex pour-over allows coffee to be covered and refrigerated for reheating without losing flavor.
Simple, easy to use with timeless, elegant design.
Like all good things, full flavor takes time — and your own special touch. The Chemex Coffeemaker delivers only the elements essential to rich coffee flavor, so that your personal taste and approach shine through.
Step 1: Get into the grind
Select your favorite whole bean coffee you want to enjoy and grind it to medium coarse ground.
Optional Tip: We suggest using a burr grinder because it delivers a more consistent particle size, allowing for a more even extraction and fuller bodied cup of coffee.
Step 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 into the top of the Chemex brewer. The thick (three-layer) portion should cover the pouring spout.
Optional Tip: Dampen the filter with warm water to rinse and preheat the brewer. Once the water has drained through the filter completely, pour it out of the brewer while keeping the filter sealed against the coffeemaker wall.
Step 4: Let it bloom
Once you have brought the appropriate amount of water to a boil, remove it from the heat and allow it to stop boiling vigorously.
Pour a small amount of water over the coffee grounds to wet them, and wait for about 30 seconds for them to 'bloom', releasing the most desirable coffee elements from the grounds.
Optional Tip: Perfect brewing temperature is about 200°F.
Step 5: First pour
After the grounds bloom, slowly pour the brewing water over the grounds while keeping the water level well below the top of the Chemex (quarter inch or more).
Step 6: Brew on
Slowly pour the remaining water over the grounds, using a circular or back-and-forth motion as you pour to ensure an even soaking of the grounds.
Step 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 brewing process eliminates bitterness.
Tip: On all brewers except the pint size model, the 'button' indicates the carafe is half filled and the bottom of the wooden collar/spout indicates it's full. On the pint size brewer, the button is the full marker.
Step 7: Toss the filter
Once the desired amount of coffee is brewed, lift the filter with spent grounds out of the brewer and discard.
Step 8: Enjoy the perfect cup
Pour your freshly made coffee into your Chemex mug and indulge in the flavor.
In order to keep your coffee warm you may place the Chemex directly on either a glass stove top or gas flame both at low heat. If you have an electric coil stove top, you must utilize the Chemex stainless steel wire grid (TKG) in between the Chemex and the coils to prevent breakage. Be sure that there is a small amount of liquid in the carafe before placing it on a warm heating element.
Keep it clean
A carefully cleaned and handled Chemex brewer will give you a lifetime of service. Remove the wooden handle and continue to hand wash with warm soap and water, or place the coffeemaker securely in the dishwasher.
A perfect pairing
The blending of art and science doesn't end with the Chemex coffeemaker. Our Chemex 2-Quart Water Kettle achieves the perfect brewing temperature with functional elegance. Made from heavy-walled heat-resistant glass, our flat-bottomed kettle will ensure a delightful boiling and brewing process. The unique silicone stopper keeps the brewed water at peak temperature while venting steam, so the neck stays cool to the touch for safe handling.
The Six Cup Classic Series used together with the scientifically designed, patented CHEMEX Bonded Filters, will guarantee that our pour over brewing process will deliver the perfect cup of coffee, without any sediments or bitter elements. Includes a polished wood collar with leather tie. Capacity: 30 Ounce Height: 8 1/2" Diameter: 5 1/8" Item: CM-6A

Plus, the glass just broke after half a dozen uses, when I was pouring 200F water onto the grounds from my electric kettle. That's 5F lower than the recommended temperature for brewing coffee, by the way, so not even max temp.
Overall, not interested in a replacement. If it didn't break and I wanted something without plastic to replace my typical coffee maker, I might try again. My stainless steel French press will work just fine, though, so I'll stick with that.
The glass is thin, I knew that before I got it, I got a chemex cozy so as not to have issues putting in down on my Granite Counter. I can see it lasting a long time as long as I don’t bang it down or was the wood with hot soapy water a lot...so far it’s beautiful and makes a nice cup of coffee.. so far it’s my favorite for a simple easy good cup of coffee... it gets used 2 to 3 times a day.
Will update in a few months.
The glass itself is very solid, but not super thick nor super thin, definitely still need to be careful with it, as it is indeed glass. The wood isn't too bad, but I hear that it could have it's finish worn down, but it's wood, it can be re-done very easily. What cannot be easily re-done is putting that collar back on. I dread the day I have to remove it for the first time and figure out how to get it back on.
Also cleaning wise, this thing is a pain with a regular rag, or sponge, or paper towel even. You really do need their coffee brush or something like it, so I might cough up the cash for that soon. Their filters are expensive. 20$ USD for 100 usually, and not found at all supermarkets, but they're the reason this chemex grants as good a flavor as it does. I strongly recommend buying this pour over, if you are ready to have excellent coffee, but I also recommend a grinder as well.
Top international reviews
Regardless of the petrochemical moniker (stand back INEOS there's a new kid in town) the coffee out of this thing is brilliantly full-bodied, smooth, all that jazz that people guff when they're trying to describe coffee.
Look my palate is about as sophisticated as your average fart joke but I'll say this: my housemate is still enjoying my daily affirmations about how delicious and amazing the coffee is, and he may laugh but he agrees! There's something about the simple process of slowly pouring hot (but not boiled) water around the filter to create a rich crema and repeat until the coffee resembles a chocolate brownie. I just hold the wooden waist band and twist the chemex, which lets face is it, is just an overpriced Pyrex Beaker with a funky wooden dingdang, and keep going until aforementioned brownie composition is achieved. We've recently switched to oat milk and (I haven't visited the Algerian place on Old Compton since I bought this) the very basic supermarket-bought coffee granules taste, to my experience, significantly better than if treated on a stove-top percolator or mocha. It's literally night and day (this is where my housemate is normally shaking his head and heading into the other room, WHILST ENJOYING HIS AWESOME CUP OF JOE, the fraud)
My only caveat is that I cheaped on the filters and regretted it, I'm not sure if all Milita or whatever they're called, filters are the same but the stitching is relatively weak and I gather the impact of continuous pouring of hot water onto the filters seam is somewhat greater than regular drip coffee would be. Cos, you know, it's a drip. So either check whether the filters can be used on certain types of coffee, specifically to pour onto, or just lump it and buy the chemex filters. You're already throwing caution to the wind for a lavishly priced piece of glass that could break from harsh language, what do you care?
