The filter is well-made and fits the Chemex well. I bought it in the hope that it would allow for more coffee oils to pass through, as the Chemex filters tend to filter out most of the body-providing oils, and I like the idea of not using a lot of disposable paper. However, the filter is so porous that it allows too much sediment to pass through as well, which defeats the purpose of the Chemex system, and I might as well use a french press. I tried using a coarser grind to lessen the sediment, but then the water flows way too quickly through the grounds and makes for a weak cup. So, the filter might be good for someone else's purposes, but not for me. Back to the paper filters.
I have used this filter with my Chemex 6 and 8 cup. I put it in the dishwasher a few times and have never had any problems with it. I love this filter. I never have grounds in my coffee. There is always a thicker coffee as a result, and also near no oil residue. As for price, $40 feels a lot better than the $60 alternative, maybe it’s discounted because it’s new, but when I actually received the filter it felt like a solid quality product. Overall, if you enjoy a good cup of coffee and do not want to put the chemicals added to paper filters in your body, this filter is a solid choice.
I was lead to believe that this filter would produce coffee similar to that of a french press. Meaning a little sediment but overall richness. In my experience this metal filter allows a very large amount of sediment to pass through. I have tried several brew methods including varying the movement and speed of my pour, various grind settings and various bloom times.
Not only does this filter allow an obscene amount of sediment to pass through but the water also passes through very quickly yielding a half-steeped and mucky cup of mud.
I now use the paper filters that came with my Chemex and am happy with the coffee. But, I would like the richness and oil-presence of a french press that I was promised by this extremely overpriced and disappointing product.
