The Chemex was designed in 1941 and had been making delicious coffee ever since. Its non-porous, heat-resistant glass construction, combined with proprietary, scientifically designed filters, produces coffee with clarity and complexity. As a result, the Chemex coffee brewer produces a very clean, refreshing cup of coffee.
This is due to the conical shape of the top of the brewer and thick, natural paper filters that fold to a point. The coffee brews in a thin stream from this point, creating a clean solution that often highlights the fruity notes of exceptional fresh-roasted coffee.
Chemex's elegant design has won it a permanent spot in the Museum of Modern Art collections: the Smithsonian and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. It makes it a beautiful serving vessel as well as a brilliant brewer.
Each Chemex includes a hand-blown glass carafe with a cone-shaped top and a comfortable leather-tied, wooden collar.
It comes with a polished wood collar and leather tie: the collar serves as an insulated handle around the middle of the coffeemaker.
