If you use a Chemex you probably run out of filters at the most inopportune times.
You can use the more widely available Melitta #6 filters in place of Chemex filters (my Chemex coffee maker is a ‘5 cup’ model). The coffee made with the Melitta filter has more sediment (think French press versus Aeropress) but it yields excellent coffee.
|As of writing ~ $3.00 for 40 or ~ 7 cents /filter.|
