The Chemex is a simple, elegant machine for making a simple, elegant brewed coffee. Technique-wise, it's quite a bit like pour-over coffee. Using the Chemex pot, filter, and (of course) good technique, you can craft an intensely fragrant, clean, and multifaceted cup. Molded from heat-resistant glass, the 6-cup Chemex is an excellent vessel with which to make coffee for friends. And with which to make friends, now that you mentioned it. Need help brewing?
