Chemex: Elegant Glass

Chemex: Elegant Glass

German inventor Peter Schlumbohm designed the Chemex in 1941. Originally, it was completely made of glass, and the design has barely changed in the last 8 decades. Today, the Chemex replaces the original glass handle for a wooden cover and a leather strap (see above), protecting your hand from the heat. 

This elegant and timeless coffee maker is beautifully crafted to go together with its disposable paper microfilter, unique because it captures all coffee grounds, letting through only the clearest and purest cup of coffee. Below is a guide on how we make it, and hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
