Chemex 8 Cup Pure Flavor Kit
We combined the classic Chemex 8 Cup Coffeemaker with the Able Kone filter and the beautiful Hario V60 Buono electric kettle for an expert level Chemex start-up kit.
Chemex 8 cup coffee maker
The Chemex is known as a pristine coffeemaker, and employs all of the chemically correct methods for brewing. Its hourglass shaped flask is made entirely of glass, a chemically inert material that does not absorb odors or chemical residues. The Chemex Glass Coffee Maker has no moving parts and will work forever, unless it is dropped or in some other way demolished. The original Chemex filters are made of the highest quality filter paper, but with this kit you won't need them because the Kone will outlast your Chemex!
Please note: All of the coffeemakers are measured using 5 oz. as 1 cup.
- Includes a polished wood collar with leather tie.
Able Kone filter
The Able Kone filter included with this set is by far THE BEST looking version of the Kone yet. Fit and finish is perfectly handmade. The additions of a food safe plastic support ring and flattend cone bottom not only look great, they also takes the edges off, all the while adding product rigidity helping maintain design integrity for many years of clean sustainable coffee brewing.
This is the third generation of the Kone Coffee Filter. It is a reusable filter designed to be used with the Chemex Coffee Maker, the Kone brewing system and larger types of round filter pourover brewers. This filter allows more oils and a fuller bodied cup compared to coffee brewed with a paper filter. Eliminates the need for paper filters, and a quick rinse under hot water is all that is needed to clean the smooth stainless steel surface.
Hario V60 Buono Electric kettle
This is the kettle that completes the Hario line of pour over brewing equipment. It is perfect in its simplicity, oozing V60 beauty all over in a zen-like fashion. This is almost the centerpiece of your setup, because obviously, nothing could be more important than the coffee itself.
Again, Hario does what Hario does best, it gets out of the way and lets you do what you want to do: to simply brew the best coffee you can.
This kettle only has one switch: "On". You don't have to turn it off (but you can), it automatically switches off once the water has reaches a rolling boil. A protection system is in place so the kettle will never boil dry and switch itself off in case there is no water inside. The kettle is cordless, and the base allows the kettle to rotate 360 degrees. For added flexibility and a clean look, excess power cord can be rolled up inside the kettle base.
