Invented in 1941 by Dr. Peter Schlumbohm The Chemex Coffeemaker, brews coffee without imparting any flavors of its own. On permanent display at MOMA NY and other fine museums, it is truly a work of art.
Made simply from non-porous, borosilicate glass and fastened with a wood collar and tie. The Chemex Coffeemaker is an elegant, one-piece, hourglass shaped vessel made of high quality, heat resistant glass. The traditional model comes to you with a polished wood collar and leather tie. The collar serves as an insulated handle around the middle of the coffeemaker.
With the Chemex method, you can make coffee as strong as you like without bitterness. Perfect for iced coffee and coffee flavoring for gourmet recipes. Because of its purity, Chemex brewed coffee can be covered with the Glass Cover and stored in the refrigerator for reheating without losing its flavor!
