Now Brewing: A Chemex Giveaway [CLOSED]

Coffee. Do I even need to say anything else? I’m an addict, plain and simple.


Reid and I have quite the collection going of different methods of brewing coffee and a Chemex is the latest addition. I’m far from a coffee purist, I prefer mine iced and flavored (the horrors), but I would have to argue that the pour over method truly does make some of the best I’ve ever had. And it’s so easy (here’s a brewing tutorial).

Since we love it so much, I thought maybe you would too. I’m giving away an 8-cup Chemex and a box of filters to one lucky reader! Details below.


The winner is:



[CLOSED] To enter, simply leave a comment on this post with how you take your coffee! You can also share this post on Facebook and Twitter for additional entries for a total of 3 entries per person…just leave a comment letting me know you shared it.

This giveaway is open to residents of the US and Canada. Ends Friday 12/27 at 12:00 pm EST. I will contact the winner via email so make sure to leave a valid email address. If I have not heard back from the original winner within 72 hours I will pick another.

And just a note: this is not a sponsored post. I’m just spreading the coffee love.

Happy brewing!

    It depends on my mood! Sometimes I’ll take good coffee black…. But I usually go for milk and a little caramel!

  2. Mariah O'Toole says:

    I usually just like skim milk, but will add a little sugar in the raw if I need an extra boost. Love your blog by the way!

  3. Abby Ojala says:

    I always have mine iced, never hot, with cream & a little sugar. I usually use a cold brewer. Have you ever tried a cold brewer?

    • Ashley says:

      I’ve cold-brewed coffee but just in a container, and then I strain it. I didn’t realize there was an actual coffee maker for it!

  4. Lauren Chin says:

    If I’m having hot coffee, half and half no sugar. But iced coffees usually flavored skim milk no sugar. And hot specialty drinks (lattes, macchiato), skim milk. Depends on the day!

  5. Tyra Aho says:

    Iced! With white mocha and milk

  6. Molly Impola says:

    I’ve never been able to handle the taste of coffee, but my husband likes it! This would make a fun gift too!

  7. Essary says:

    Black… I like my coffee black just how I like my women. Bold, dark, a little bitter, and hot as hell. I don’t find it offensive when other people enjoi their coffee with milk and sugar because that is just personal preference. My preference is to taste the coffee for what it is. Not what I add to it.

  8. Kelly McCarthy says:

    Iced Hazelnut – extra cream extra sugar :)

  9. Brittany Reini says:

    A little vanilla syrup and almond milk since we’re dairy free in our house. Except if I’m ordering Starbucks. Then it gets complicated;)

  10. Brenda Geesey says:

    Hey Ashley ~
    Great blog!
    I love the Chemex coffee maker. When I moved to FL in 1974, the lady I worked for had one and I loved the coffee. I have been drinking a healthy coffee that has the amazing Reishi mushroom in it. You really can’t taste the mushroom, but the health benefits are wonderful. For brewed coffee, poor man’s coffee suits me fine….Maxwell house, Folger’s, Dunkins and always hot and black.

    I’ll look forward to hearing I’ve won! LOL

  11. Rachel says:

    With just skim milk.

  12. Ariel says:

    Cream only! Unless it’s iced then I like to add a little caramel! :)

  13. Carol says:

    I love mine hot and black

  14. Ivy Hawkins says:

    I take my coffee flavored with 2 splendas, SF torani syrup & SF coffee mate creamer, no wonder my husband hates making coffee for me… :)

  15. Lacey says:

    I drink my hot coffee with milk and brown sugar or sugar in the raw. I also like my iced coffee flavored with skim milk :)

  16. Rona says:

    A splash of lite cream and stevia in the raw. ( it isn’t great but I refuse to drink my calories:)

  17. Chelsea says:

    Yum I’d love to try this. I drink mine Iced dark roast with milk & white mocha or caramel or I’ll drink it hot if there’s pumpkin flavor, otherwise I prefer iced :)

  26. Jena Tervo says:

    French Vanilla creamer

  27. Rhoda says:
