Pretty positive side-by-side review against the Chemex: https://amanandhisgear.com/bodum-...fee-makers

This is a good coffee maker. You can't go too wrong getting this.

Repping.

Pretty positive side-by-side review against the Chemex...
The reviewer pretty much ignors the difference between using a permanent filter (Bodum) and a paper filter (Chemex) when it comes to how the brewed coffee tastes.

In my experience you get a lot "dirtier" cup from permanent filters....like you get with French Press but not quite to that degree. Paper filters pass no sediment. I understand paper filters also block some oils that might improve flavor.

My biggest problem with permanent filters is that they block up and stop working within about 6 months. Perhaps I am unlucky, or perhaps all of the cleaning methods I have tried just do not work.

The Bodum is almost always this price on Amazon...but compared to Chemex it is a good price.

Have you tried paper filters inside of the permanent filters, or is that too restrictive?

That's probably not going to work. The Bodum filter is pretty slow to start with. Anything that makes it even slower is going to make it really tough to not overdo it.

I don't like the "fines" that get through the Bodum, but some of it can be controlled by using a bit corser grind...but then it starts needing a more consistent grind, which requires a burr grinder.

The paper towel trick can help a bit:

I have this and use the paper filter inside the permanent filter. I have nothing negative to say about this, I can make a single cup for myself or a couple cups for myself and wife.

Have the smaller version and same here. Use a paper filter over the permanent filter and works completely fine.

I exclusively use a paper filter over the permanent filter with no problem and the paper towel trick is wasteful, and not needed.

It doesn't clog at all, if you're brewing normally.

The only time it clogs is when I try to filter liquid coffee with no grind, which I know doesn't make sense to anyone, but there's a science and reasoning to my experiment. If you know what I'm talking about, the straw method didn't help either. Anybody reading down this far so not worry about clogging, at all. Only if you're doing weird experiments should it be a concern

Thanks folks for all the info. So some put it inside and others outside. I have not used a permanent filter. I will try the pour-over method someday. It's on my bucket list. I'm up for new options (other than espresso machines).

Current methods I employ:
  • Drip
  • French press
  • K Cups
  • Cold-brew

I did buy an Aeropress, but it is still NIB.
Just got a new blade grinder for cold brew and FP (Not too worried about the very best coffee possible which should be obvious).

Maybe watch the video? Nothing about clogging, it's just about how to get a more consistent grind out of a cheap grinder. Sifting and the paper towel trick are kludges. The real solution is a burr grinder.

The trouble with the Bodum filter, just like virtually every other metal filer, is that it can't capture the fine dust. So, either filter out that dust with a paper filter or reduce the amount of "fines" in the grind (like the vid). Adding a paper filter is a "belt and suspender" kludge and it's going to alter the brew time (try it and see), but if you've got the timing worked out to make a good cup, more power to ya.

Give the Aeropress a shot. It's cheap, like $30, and can make an awesome cup of coffee without a lot of hassle, even using grocery store coffee. There are tons of variations between grind, brew time, temperature, and the like.

Hints:
  • toss the printed instructions, Youtube it
  • variable temp. kettle helps, but not required (water just off boil is excellent)
  • use the inverted method
  • use Google/Alexa for timing

Thank you. I edited my post. Aeropress is what I meant that I have but haven't gotten around to trying. Very helpful info.
