Chemex retailers near Washington, D.C.

Purchasing filters for our Chemex coffee maker turned into a bigger ordeal than it should have been. Although there are numerous online outlets that sell Chemex filters, I couldn’t find any with free shipping.

The Chemex web site recommends you email or call them to find local retailers in your region. I called them, so — on the remote chance this information is useful to someone — here are the Chemex retailers in the Washington, D.C./Northern Virginia area:

  • Dean & Deluca
    3276 M Street NW,
    Washington, D.C.

Most of these retailers have limited evening/weekend hours, and on my first trip to Dean & Deluca, the filters were sold out, so an advance phone call is recommended.
