Chemex 10-Cup Wood Neck Coffee Maker : Glass quality low

This was a replacement for a broken chemex. Had the first one at least three years and used every day.

Excellent but actually a lot smaller than anticipated. Would get the larger one for making 2-4 cups.

Can’t live without it, makes the best coffee bar-none.

I got this as a christmas present for my coffee snob of a husband. He loves it and raves about it so must be good. I don’t drink coffee so can’t actually make any comment on the product.

I grew up in a house where my parents had used a chemex coffee maker since 1955. So when my wife moved to ‘deplasticise’ our kitchen some 8 years ago, we too became avid chemex users. The simple process produces a clean taste that leaves the ‘fancy’ machines way behind and with chemex one never has to worry about contamination from the pet plastics or potentially dirty tubes that you often find in other coffee makers. We chose the chemex version with a handle due to its convenience, but both the wooden collar and handled versions are icons of style and practicality. However, when i inadvertently broke our chemex last year we learned that the design to the new models has been ever so slightly changed with a re-shaping of the pour spout. I assume this was done because, with the old design, the wet filter would sometimes block the air gap provided by the pour spout, with a resulting ‘burp’ as the urn tries to breathe. This would result in a small amount of hot moisture ‘spitting’ from the spout. Annoying but not tragic, and it was always possible to re-seat the filter so that there would be no spitting. The new design appears to have a deeper spout, making it less likely that the filter will block it and thus the ‘spitting’ has been remedied. However, another problem has been created as it is almost impossible to pour a full urn without spillage.

Great service ; great product.

Wish i had tried one sooner, used with chemex filters and fresh coffee it makes a really great tasting coffee, coffee has never tasted so good.

Looks great and helps make a brilliant cup of clean coffee. The 6-8 cup version is perfect for serving up to four people, great with the mister barista app too [.

Chemex Glass Coffeemaker

Overview of Product

Chemex delivers the purest flavour experience.

Made of non-porous Borosilicate glass which will not absorb odours or chemical residues.

Chemex pour-over allows coffee to be covered and refrigerated for reheating without losing flavour.

Simple, easy to use with timeless, elegant design.

Like all good things, full flavour takes time — and your own special touch. The Chemex Coffeemaker delivers only the elements essential to rich coffee flavour, so that your personal taste and approach shine through.

Step 1: Get into the grind

Select your favourite 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 flavour.

Stay warm

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 utilise 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.

Just to say i love this for its aesthetics and minimalist design. But ultimately all it does is hold a coffee filter at a small distance above a vessel, into which coffee is created. So why the fancy branding pamphlet inside it which says stuff like “thanks to our patented yumcoffeetm method, we guarantee no bitterness in your coffee”. Ok i paraphrase, but it was kind of ridiculous that there’s any technology in a glass beaker that holds something a bit higher than another thing. But i do love it and use it every day, so something works.

Good quality, makes excellent coffee. The proper chemx filters are worth adding to your order.

You have to work fast to get your coffee at a decent temperature, especially if making more than 2 mugs. Nice finish to the glass and wood. Difficult to clean properly, so invest in some decanter cleaning balls and a brush.

I love making coffee with this; summer time it’s nice to make a cold brew (japanese ice coffee), i use 1/3 ice & 2/3 water with slightly more coffee than brewing normal hot coffee. These are not fradgile but can break, i have gone through 3 in 3 years however i use it every day and would not switch to an alternative brewing method. My wife now uses the last one as a flower vase :-dchemex generally gives a cleaner taste than v60 due to its thicker papers. If you want a filter coffee that is a bit more acidic go for v60.

Well made, excellent pour-over style coffee maker. Would buy this again in a heartbeat. Recommend proper chemex filters.

Really bought this because i’d just finished reading ‘from russia with love’ and james bond had one. Glad i’m so easily influenced though, as it really is a lovely looking piece of equipment. If i have one regret, it’s that i bought the 8 cup rather than the 6 cup version – my wife has a little trouble gripping it and so i end up making most of the coffee.

I bought this to replace a generic coffee maker i had broken, and as this had good reviews i thought i’d give it a try. I must admit i was sceptical, as my old one was very similar in design, but it really does make a great cup of coffee. For me, as a coffee addict, its money well spent.

Excellent product and service.

Chemex 10-Cup Wood Neck Coffee Maker

Nice piece of equipment making excellent filter coffee, but the quality of the glass is low: it’s thin and streaked. Expected better quality for the price.

Beautiful piece of glass, really elevates coffee making to another level. Easy to clean and retains zero residue.

I love the handle version sooooo much better than the wood version. Though, i do wish they make one with a glass handle and a wood wrap just for aesthetics, since the wood/glass combo looks really good. But functionally, it’s much easier to hold the glass handle.

Can’t fault a chemed product.

Makes the smoothest, most clear cup of coffee i’ve ever tasted. I bought the 3 cup version to have on my desk at work and it’s great.

Very smooth and beautiful coffee with no bitterness at all.

I have been using a chemex for over a year now. This is a replacement for a 6 cup model. 30 one day delivered before noon the next. This system makes some of the best coffee you can make.

Does what it says and nicely designed.

The smoothest coffee on this planet.

I bought this for my friend/colleague who has now given it a few test runs and says it’s a nice nifty product that brews coffee well (he also owns a coffee shop so coming from him this is ticking the right boxes) it has a really cool/sleek yet simple design, which is great because you don’t really need an extravagant device, you just need good coffee. No downsides thus far, i believe it takes a different filter compared to other chemex products but if you don’t have any other related products i suppose this wouldn’t be an issue. Looks good on an office desk.

Such an intriguing piece of sculpture, it’s a work of art. Well made, i believe the glass is hand blown, and the polished wood collar and leather binding thongs set off this lovely coffee maker. From a practical point of view it works well, is easy to hold, easy to clean, and with the chemex filter makes a delicious coffee as clear as rich port. Afterthought; it’s worth noting that the correct filter papers are important and you need to order some at the same time as the coffee maker as it does not come with sample papers. And as soon as you open the box you’ll want to use it.

Absolutely love this, makes a great brew and is easy to sue.

If you’re only making coffee for yourself, get this one and not the bigger one. Its much easier to make a beautiful cup of coffee with it.

Looks super stylish and maintaines the coffee or tea hot for a long period.

A great way of making a smooth clean cup of coffee. This method eliminates oils and unwanted grinds. Becoming ever more popular – the best results come from using freshly roasted beans.

I didn’t think it was possible to improve on the taste of the coffee i use, but this makes it taste even better. It is also easy to use, discard the filter, rinse out the coffee maker and it is ready for next use. I got the pre-folded filter papers to make the job even easier.

Wow this is a coffee lovers dream coffee maker. I wasn’t sure whether to get this but am so happy i did get it. Makes my coffee taste even better.

The product arrived chipped, i returned it and a replacement was sent. When the replacement arrived it was dismantled in the box and covered in dirt. The product itself, however, is of high quality and works well.
