Filters specifically designed for Chemex brewers, these fit all Chemex models except the small 3 Cup size.
We really recommend Chemex filters for your brewer, and the Chemex type (pre-folded squares) are only pennies more than standard filters. I like the square pre-folded best because they are strong, and when it comes time to toss the filter (into your compost, of course!) they do not fall apart. The square type give you neat "handholds" on the corner.
The filters are extra thick - so pre-rinsing to reduce paper taste is crucial. You can do this when you rinse the brewer and pre-warm it.
You will have trouble using non-Chemex filters in one of these brewers. The "neck" between the top and bottom is a large diameter for regular cone filters and they tend to split at the seam under the weight of the hot water. It's not fun to clean that up.
But Chemex brand filters are readily available and reasonably priced. There are 100 in a box.
