Chemex Classic Glass Coffee Maker
The iconic Chemex coffeemaker was first introduced in the 1940s as a pristine design for brewing pure, fully extracted coffee, without imparting any foreign flavors. With only one single piece of glass and no moving parts, the Chemex is the original, artisanal "anti-coffee machine" for pour-over brewing. And now, over 70 years later, the unchanged design still has great relevance for the coffee enthusiast.
The Chemex brewer is on permanent display at MoMA and its visual elegance has won a place in the permanent collection of New York's Corning Museum of Glass. The Chemex coffeemaker was also selected by the Illinois Institute of Technology as one of the 100 best designed products of modern times.
This manual pour-over brewer is made from the highest quality, heat-resistant and non-porous borosilicate glass and it is designed to work in conjunction with Chemex paper filters. The coffee only comes in contact with the filter and the glass, resulting in a full-bodied yet pure flavor that is never bitter and has no sediment. The Chemex Classic Series of Coffee Makers clearly offers one of the most pure brewing experiences possible.
The brewer is one single, simple piece, with no moving parts; so, short of it being smashed, it can't malfunction or degrade over time. The simple cone and beaker shape is complimented by a polished wood collar, secured by a leather tie, to create an elegant, stay-cool handle for pouring. All Chemex capacities assume the standard of 5-oz. per cup of coffee. Dishwasher safe.
