How to Use a Vintage Pyrex Glass Coffee Maker

Vintage Pyrex glass coffee makers are all the rage with the resurgence of retro kitchen tools. Not only do they add a unique, vintage aesthetic to your kitchen, but they also make delicious coffee, too.

Using a vintage Pyrex glass coffee maker is a bit different than your modern, electric coffee makers. Before you get started, keep in mind that you’ll need fresh, coarsely ground coffee, an exact amount of hot water, and about 8-12 minutes for your coffee to brew.

Here’s What You Need

  • Vintage Pyrex glass pot
  • Coffee filter
  • Coffee grounds (coarsely ground)
  • Kettle of hot water


  1. Rinse the Pyrex glass pot with hot water.
  2. Place the filter into the top of the pot. Make sure it fits securely.
  3. Put two tablespoons of freshly ground coffee into the filter. Level it off the top, but don’t flatten or pack the grounds.
  4. Carefully pour hot water into the pot to the top fill-line on the side.
  5. Cover the top and wait for 8-12 minutes for the water to finish dripping through the grounds.
  6. Uncover the lid and pour your hot, fresh cup of coffee!

You can enjoy your unique, vintage cup of coffee any time of the day. With a little bit of extra time and effort, now you can experience coffee just like your grandparents did with a vintage Pyrex glass coffee maker!
