Chemex calls this their 6-cup brewer; I call it their 2-3 Cup brewer. I guess it's all from your perspective. This brewer makes about 30 oz of coffee. For me, that's about two servings. I fill a mug and thermos with it, and it's perfect for the next couple of hours.
To brew with a Chemex, you use a more coarse grind, and they use thicker coffee filters. I believe this generates the brightest, most flavorful cup of coffee available. When we sample new coffees, I always like to brew a pot in this exact brewer because I think it will give me the best example of how, you the customer, will be enjoying our coffee, and frankly, Chemexes are my favorite.
A Little About The Manufacturer
We here at Sagebrush coffee have never been shy about our love for the Chemex Coffee Brewer. In our opinion, no other brewing method brings out the bright, fruity flavor of a freshly roasted coffee bean as the Chemex can. A classic in both design and function, there's a reason the Chemex is more popular today than it was 60 years ago!
