This purchased turned into a real cluster. I purchased the 8-cup @ around $38 bucks, and right after I received the coffee maker I received an email from the Amazon supplier that my same coffee maker was now $30 bucks, and that the 10-cup model was $38 ! I would have rather had the 10-cup model instead but sure as heck didn’t want to go thru the hassle and time to repackage, resend the 8 cup-er.

This was just a hassle. Yes, the difference was credited to my credit card, but ultimately thats not what I wanted knowing that I would have had the larger pot.

I bought this item because of it’s beauty (I bought the hand blown model…$78). I like a flavorful stronger brew (somewhat like Starbuck bold). This coffee maker produces a milder brew because the hot water does not brew in the coffee beans long enough to produce the rich flavor that I prefer. After one use I went back to my French Press which produces a much better cup of coffee.

This came really quick. My sister loves it. She hasn’t tried it yet but has used someone else’s and says it makes a great cup of coffee with cheap coffee grounds.

In addition to the Chemex brewer you will need a kettle to boil water. I found on Amazon an electric kettle that will shut itself off after boiling. You reward? The best coffee you’ve had. The Chemex pot and method will yield exceptional coffee, crystal clear and NO bitterness. The Chemex will make grocery store coffee palitable. So forget about all the fancy-shmancy gear. The Chemex and a hotplate burner are all I need. I warrant you will not be let down.

We LOVE Chemex coffee, but read on. First discovered this over Thanksgiving when Boyfriend’s mother pulled one out of the closet that she’s had since the 60s. Fell in love with the coffee. Bought one in early January. Last night, the thing sprung a leak near the bottom. Had to be thrown out (didn’t help that I dropped it on the tile floor transferring it to the sink), but I digress. My guess is that you should give the water a minute or so to cool down before you pour it into the Chemex. I’m betting that pouring the water immediately after it boils is just too much for the thing. One other word of advice – Chemex takes a few minutes and requires your full attention during brewing because you have to keep pouring water into it. If I know I’m going to be in a hurry in the morning, I program the autodrip the night before to save myself 10-15 minutes. Still, it’s great coffee, we love it, and I will buy another one (probably before the sun sets) and let the water cool down for 60-90 seconds after boiling and before pouring.
