The Chemex coffeemaker is a beautiful, simple, and effective way to make coffee. Its visual elegance has earned it a place in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Smithsonian, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The Chemex coffeemaker was also selected by the Illinois Institute of Technology as one of the 100 best designed products of modern times.
Don't think for a second that this is all beauty and no function. The Chemex coffeemaker, together with Chemex-Bonded Coffee Filter, makes perfect coffee. Clear, pure, flavorful and without bitterness or sediment every time. The coffee only comes in contact with the scientifically designed filter and non-porous glass. With the Chemex method, you can make coffee as strong as you like without bitterness. The method is very effective for iced coffee. 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.
This merging of form and function came out of Chemist Peter Schlumbohm's taste for fine flavor. Applying the techniques used to insure laboratory purity, he set out to brew what may have been the first cup of truly, clear, full-bodied coffee - free of undesirable fats, oils, sediment and most of all...bitterness.
For five decades the coffeemaker that was once available to only a circle of acquaintances has been enjoyed by connoisseurs around the world. But, the Chemex coffeemaker's greatest distinction is that once it brews coffee to the most exacting personal requirements, the filter and grounds are removed in a single package, leaving the carafe as at home with fine china as it is with the first cup of morning coffee.
