Fully-bodied, richer flavor from less coffee, and as strong as you like without bitterness - that's what the Chemex Filter gives you. The Chemex Filter is folded into a cone shape, exactly as in laboratory techniques. This assures uniform extraction since the water filters through all the grounds on its way to the apex of the cone. The filter is guaranteed not to burst under the weight of the liquid during filtration, nor break when lifting out the grounds.
Chemex filters remove even the finest sediment particles as well as the undesirable oils and fats. The formulation of the filter permits the proper infusion time by regulating the filtration rate - not to slow, not too fast. Good infusion of the coffee grounds (as in brewing and steeping tea) gives coffee a richer flavor while at the same time making possible precise fractional extraction: filtering out the undesirable components which make coffee bitter by allowing only the desirable flavor elements of the coffee bean to pass through.
NOTE: This style of Chemex filter is designed for specific use with ONLY the 3 Cup Chemex Coffee Maker and will not work with any other of the Chemex Coffee Makers.
