You know the coffee world is currently Chemex crazy, right? So much so that Chemex themselves, for the first time in decades, is ramping up their advertising (not here on CoffeeGeek, sadly lol!) updating their logo and even designing new products!
Getting a Chemex under $35 is pretty hard... but we managed to find the 3 cup model on for $33! Keep in mind, this version is not compatible with the KONE filter - you have to use Chemex papers with this one - but all in all, it's a pretty brewer that does a really good job.
It tends to brew a bit differently than the 6 and 8 cup Chemex models because of the much more narrow filter area - not better or worse, just different. We've had really great success using the half moon Chemex filters with this unit.
