chemex accessories

I came up with a list of the top Chemex accessories for you.

I made sure to include product reviews that would assist you in enhancing your coffee experience.

From Chemex warmers to visually beautiful mugs and containers, you’ll find the ideal accessories for yourself or as a present.

Let’s get started now, without further ado.

Chemex

The Chemex is unrivaled whenever it comes to outstanding coffee brewed using an elegant but simple method.

Before being supplied worldwide, their coffee filters, makers, kettles, and accessories were created here. For the past 70 years, the iconic Chemex coffee maker has stayed untouched, so this trend is expected to continue.

Because of its attractive design and great aromatic coffee, the Chemex is among the most famous slow coffee processes.

Review of the best Chemex accessories

If you possess a Chemex coffee machine, various accessories can help you optimize your brewing experience and process.

As a result, here are some of the top Chemex accessories:

1. Chemex filters

Chemex Classic Coffee Filters, Squares, 100 ct - Exclusive Packaging
  • Step 1: Place the funnel in the top portion of the CHEMEX coffeemaker, with 3 layers on the groove side. The groove is an air vent (and also the pouring spout) and allows air to escape from the lower portion of the coffeemaker, letting the coffee filter
  • Step 2: Put coffee in the filter paper cone. Use one heaping tablespoon per cup of coffee (adjust to personal taste if needed after first brew). Refer to brewing instructions for remaining steps.
  • THICKER: 20-30% thicker than the competition, specialty fiber filter design keep bitter elements, oils, and grounds in their place (and out of your cup)

Chemex® filters are typically about a third heavier than competing brands, removing even the finest silt particles and unwanted oils and fats. In addition, the filter’s formulation allows for the correct infusion period by adjusting the filtering rate –  not too quick, not too slow.

An excellent injection of the coffee grounds (similar to brewing and steeping tea) provides coffee a richer flavor while allowing for precise fractional extraction, which filters out the undesirable elements that make coffee bitter by permitting only the flavor components of the coffee bean to travel through.

What distinguishes CHEMEX® Bonded Filters from the competition?

  •  The cone shape enables consistent extraction for pure coffee flavor.
  •  Thicker specialized fiber filter design traps bitter compounds, oils, and grinds (and out of your cup)
  •  The coffee removes impurities, acidity, and harmful and bitter ingredients. Therefore, only the coffee beans’ caffeine and desired aromatic oils will be found in your brewed cup.                                                                                       
  •  The CHEMEX® coffeemaker brewing system is a favorite among roasters and baristas worldwide.
  • Oxygen cleaning is a bleach-free procedure that leaves no chemical residue or flavor on the filter.
  •  It goes nicely with many kinds of roasts, including tea! Allowing you to brew the purest and ideal cup every time

At the moment, 1Zpresso is gaining much traction in the coffee market. It’s a relatively young firm, but it’s quickly earned a reputation as one of the best non-automatic coffee grinder products for the money.

I’ve tested several of the company’s models, including the more expensive “E” and “K” series.

Most people, however, would benefit from the mid-ranger known as “Jx.” It’s a bargain at its current pricing. It easily outperforms grinders costing 2-4 times as much!

The grinder’s uniformity is amazing. Everything from Turkish coffee and espresso to pour-over and French press may be made with it.

Because of the grinder’s large and forceful 48 mm steel burrs, it’s also a lightning-fast machine. It is significantly quicker than any other models discussed in this article. In 35 seconds, you should be able to ground 25 grams of coffee.

3. Hario V60 drip coffee scale

  • Slim Design: The V60 drip scale is designed to comfortably fit a server while maintaining a small footprint in your kitchen. Slim, sleek and easy to store

The Hario V60 Drip Coffee Scale is a sturdy instrument made for dripping coffee by hand. From a tare function to a timer, it offers everything you need to make excellent drip coffee.

Because both indications are available on display, you can measure weight and brew time simultaneously. Unfortunately, the timer does not start automatically; press the Start/Stop button to start it.

Two AAA batteries power this simple entry-level scale with no additional frills. While it is not waterproof, it can withstand a few little drops from time to time.

When measuring 0.1-gram intervals, the display accuracy shines between 2 and 200 grams. The scale measures 0.5 gram intervals between 200 and 500 grams and 1 gram intervals between 500 and 2000 grams. While the gradual increase works nicely for pour-over.

4. Blue horse cozy

Blue Horse Cozy compatible with Chemex Coffee Maker (Large Wood Collar) USE SIZING INSTRUCTIONS BELOW
  • USE SIZING INSTRUCTIONS to ensure you get the correct size
  • Clear window lets you see coffee level
  • Patented design keeps coffee hot

Another of the finest Chemex accessories is the Blue Horse cozy warmer. It may appear goofy at first (especially if you’ve never seen any), but it’s pretty handy.

It will retain your coffee heat for longer if you attach it to your carafe. But, of course, you can’t reasonably expect your coffee to be hot after some hours.

However, employing this neoprene product will undoubtedly make a difference. After brewing, your coffee should be warm enough to consume for about 40–50 minutes.

This Blue Horse case keeps your coffee heated and prevents the Chemex from breaking.

So, if you’re clumsy in the mornings when brewing your coffee and accidentally bang the pricey Chemex carafe against kitchen tops, the cozy will protect it.

5. Bamboo Chemex filter holder

Bamboo Coffee Filter Holder compatible with Aeropress, Chemex and Hario pour over coffee filters
393 Reviews
Bamboo Coffee Filter Holder compatible with Aeropress, Chemex and Hario pour over coffee filters

  • Can hold up to 60 large filters or 100 #1 #2 #4 cone filters and 40 small round filters
  • Slot at the bottom allows small round filters to pull out one at a time.

This filter holder, sold by HandGround, is ideal for Aeropress and pour-over coffee enthusiasts. You can put your square Chemex filters on top and the round Aeropress filters on the bottom.

It’s not only practical but also looks fantastic. I adore the hand grinder design on the holder’s upper right corner. Unfortunately, it implies that the item contains coffee-related items.

When square Chemex filters are placed in these holders, they are sometimes mistaken for napkins.

6. Parkbrew Chemex lid

  • ☕ PERFECT FIT. The coffee accessory is made for ParkBrew Coffee Co.’s pour over coffee maker but fits other pour over coffee makers like a Chemex. If purchasing the pour over lid for a Chemex coffee maker, know that this lid fits best in the 6, 8, and 10 cup coffee maker, but it will work with their 3-cup maker too.

This lid will assist you in maintaining your Chemex coffee warm for extended periods. It’s constructed of BPA-free silicone and fits Chemex carafes with six, eight, and ten cups.

It keeps the heat and dust out of your newly brewed coffee. If you finish an entire batch in under an hour, this silicone lid will allow you to enjoy your final cup while it’s still hot.

Your brew will most probably be warm for up to 2 hours after brewing if you have those as mentioned above cozy in place.

If you keep your Chemex carafe in the fridge, the silicone lid will safeguard your coffee from aromas from the fridge.

On the other hand, the Park Brew Lid is designed to allow you to pour the coffee while the lid is still in place. This lid adds flair while also preventing heat loss.
