The Chemex Coffeemaker was invented in 1941 by Dr. Peter Schlumbohm PhD. Made simply from non-porous, borosilicate glass and fastened with a wood collar and tie, it 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.
In our book the CHEMEX pour-over makes an exceptional cup of coffee. The simple, easy to use, timeless and elegant design is a beautiful utilitarian tool for the daily coffee drinker.
