Chemex: Elegant Glass

The Revolutionary Chemex Coffee Maker

In 1941, the world of coffee shops was forever changed by the innovative design of German inventor Peter Schlumbohm: the Chemex. Originally, it was a masterpiece crafted entirely from glass, a testament to timeless elegance that has seen little change over the last 8 decades. Today's Chemex sports a modern twist, replacing the original glass handle with a protective wooden cover and a leather strap (see above), ensuring your hand stays safe from the heat.

A piece of art in its own right, this coffee maker is beautifully crafted to go hand-in-hand with its unique disposable paper microfilter. Unlike any other, this filter captures all coffee grounds, delivering only the purest and clearest cup of coffee, akin to what you'd expect from the best coffee shops near me.

For those curious about how to recreate the magic of local coffee shops at home, we've put together a step-by-step guide on how to use this good coffee maker. We hope you enjoy brewing and savoring your own coffee as much as we do!
