Expired: Bodum’s Chemex Alternative Is Only $14 Right Now

For the no-nonsense coffee guy who doesn’t care to Instagram stuff before 9am, this Bodum unit does the exact same thing as a Chemex for a fraction of the cost.


When you think about making pour-over coffee at home, you probably think of Chemex. Those perfectly-contoured glass carafes, the Instagram-worthy wooden wrap to keep you from burning your fingerprints off a la Men In Black, the leather tie and wooden beads. It’s a pretty kitchen accoutrement, to be sure. But it’s also $35 for the smallest option, and the prices climb from there. Do you need the wooden wrap or leather tie? Do you need the Chemex brand name? Well, if you’re no-nonsense about your coffee, that’s probably a no.

While plenty of us at Gear Patrol use a Chemex or a similar pour-over coffee maker, Bodum is offering this little beauty today for only $14. Featuring an insulating wrap around the center of the glass carafe, plus an included reusable filter that eliminates another $12-15 in paper filter costs, this is a somewhat simplified version of the pour-over brewer we all know and love at a price point you probably don’t have to think twice about.

Update: While this isn’t a special Prime Day deal anymore, this brewer still makes an amazing cup of coffee without much fuss for only $17. That means you’re paying less than half the price of a comparable Chemex — and that’s a purchase we still recommend.
