You enjoy the hand-made quality of pour-over coffee; that's why you want a CHEMEX®. Well what if your CHEMEX® itself was also hand-made? Now we're talking!
Produced by hand, the clarity of the blown glass and fine workmanship is unparalleled: undoubtedly one of the most recognizable and elegant coffee makers available.
The CHEMEX® was designed in 1941 and has 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.
In fact, it's the filters that are the star of the CHEMEX® show. They are 20-30% heavier than other filters and remove even the finest sediment particles. The design of the filter facilitates the proper infusion time by regulating the filtration rate - about a 4 minute brew.
One warning: As the filters are made of heavy paper, they require a full rinse with hot water, before brewing, to remove any paper taste. It's worth noting that there are also other filter options for the CHEMEX®. If you want to try a re-usable filter that gives you a totally different, but equally delicious coffee, then check out the COFFEESOCK Cloth Filter
Since the CHEMEX® is made out of glass, you can see the coffee as it brews and, as it's a pour over method, you can also customize your particular brew method very easily.
It comes with a polished wood collar and leather tie: the collar serving as an insulated handle around the middle of the coffeemaker.
The CHEMEX® is so cool that it has a permanent display in the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and is how James Bond makes his coffee. What other endorsements do you need?
