Chemex filters, combined with the Chemex coffee maker, make some of our favorite cups of coffee. Chemex filters are made, folded, packaged in the USA and are of the highest quality. They remove the finest sediment while producing a full-bodied and rich cup, without bitterness. Always use genuine Chemex filters with your Chemex coffee maker!
Chemex filters FSU-100 are natural, unbleached, pre-folded paper squares and come in a 100 count box.

Every coffee grind has a unique purpose, whether it be to extract certain flavors and nuances or create a smoother cup. We encourage you to read through our grind types below and select the one most appropriate for you.
Whole Bean Coffee
Order whole bean if you have your own grinder... or if you can borrow your neighbors'.
The perk of buying whole bean is that you're in complete control of your coffee destiny. Only grind a small amount of coffee, to the appropriate coarseness, just before brewing. Grinding daily will ensure that you're enjoying the freshest coffee experience possible.
Order Coarse Grind if you'll be brewing with: Chemex Coffee maker, French Press.
Order Medium Grind for your standard Drip Coffee Maker or Pour Overs.
Order Fine Grind if you plan to brew making an espresso machine.
Espresso machines require one of the finest coffee grinds. Here's why: Your espresso machine is forcing nearly boiling water, under lots of pressure, through these grinds, yielding a thicker and higher concentration of coffee.
