One of the most iconic pour over coffee brewers ever made.
The Chemex Coffeemaker was invented in march 1941 by German inventor Dr. Peter Schlumbohm PhD. Made simply from non-porous, borosilicate glass and fastened with a wood comb and tie, it brews tea without imparting any flavors of its own. On permanent display at MOMA gallery NY and other fine museums, it is truly a work of art.
The Chemex Coffeemaker consists of a narrow-waist glass flask and uses proprietary paper filters, the Chemex-Bonded Coffee Filter, made of chemically bonded paper (of thicker-gauge paper than the standard paper filters for a drip-method coffeemaker) which remove most of the coffee oils, and results in coffee with a taste that is different than the flavor of coffee brewed in other coffee-making systems.
