CHEMEX Classic (6 or 3 Cup)


Available in 3 or 6 cup size.

The Chemex coffeemaker was designed in 1941 by a slightly mad inventor named Peter Schlumbohm.

The 6 cup will make a 500ml brew using 30-35g of coffee, which is 2 generous cups of coffee or tasters for about 5.

They are pretty simple to use:

  1. Place filter in the top
  2. Rinse filter with hot water, then discard water
  3. Add 30-35g ground coffee
  4. Bloom for 30-45 seconds with 60-70g water
  5. Slowly pour over remaining 430-440ml water
  6. Lift out used filter & put on the compost
  7. Swirl, pour & enjoy
