Detailed Commentary

So I decided to get rid of the KMB I had traded for. No idea why. It was a bit of a pain to use and slow but made really good coffee. I wanted something less. I guess.

So I traded for thisahere Chemex. I LOVES it. Nope, it doesn't make quite so good coffee as the KMB but it is much easier to use and brews twice as fast.

All this thing is (as if you didn't know) is a glass funnel and carafe and some fancy filters. The filters took a little getting used to (why can't they make them like regualr cone filters?) but I got over that in 2 brews. You put the grounds in the filter and pour hot water over them and wait a moment. Very easy.  I was suprised how good the coffee was, rich and smooth, having gone through a filter. And with no silt (I usually use a press)!

I'd like to have the 13 cup but that's a bit much for my budget and more often then not I only 24oz of coffee (8 'cups' = 40oz). The maker looks nice and doesn't take up much space on the counter.  

This isn't much of a review but the device is pretty simple too.

Buying Experience

Traded for KMB, cash, and a player to be named later.
