Paper filter for use with 6, 8 and 10 cup Chemex brewers.
Since 1941 Chemex has been ensuring their bonded coffee filters have been doing what no other coffee filter does - giving the most pure, smooth cup of coffee every time.
Chemex pre folded filter papers are easy to use and give a different taste to most filter papers due to their thickness. Chemex filters are 20-30% heavier than competitive brands and remove even the finest sediment particles as well as the undesirable oils and fats. Don't be fooled by cheaper imposters - these filters are the real deal and, in our humble opinion, there's no other option for Chemex brewing.
The cone shape, exactly as in laboratory techniques, ensures uniform extraction as the water filters through all the grounds on its way to the apex of the cone; regulating the filtration rate - not too slow, not too fast.
The Chemex filter is guaranteed not to burst under the weight of the liquid during filtration, and not to break when lifting out the grounds.
How to use: Open the filter so one side has three layers of paper. Place the filter into the Chemex and ensure the side with 3 layers is towards the spout. To ensure there's no paper taste in your brew, we recommend you pour warm water on the filter first to wash the paper taste away and warm up the brewer.
We like a coarse grind when brewing with Chemex, but experiment, who are we to tell you how to grind your favourite brew?
Note these filter papers do not work with the 3 cup brewer - see Half Moon filters instead!
