Simple function and visual elegance combine for the optimum coffee brewing experience, as the unique properties of our pure glass carafe ensure the natural flavour of your chosen coffee—and nothing else.
Together with the scientifically designed, patented Chemex bonded filters, the Chemex pour over brewing process delivers the purest flavour experience, without any sediments of bitter elements.
Enjoyed by coffee lovers around the world, Chemex simply provides the best cup of coffee you've ever had, every time you have it.
The Chemex coffeemaker is an elegant, one-piece, hourglass shaped vessel made of high quality, non-porous and heat-resistant glass that will not absorb nor impart any odours or flavours.
The classic model comes to you with a polished wood collar and leather tie, which serves as an insulated handle around the middle of the coffeemaker.
Simple and easy to use with timeless, elegant design.
The Chemex Coffeemaker was invented in 1941 by Dr. Peter Schlumbohm PhD, whose focus was on making everyday objects more functional, attractive and enjoyable to use.
When designing the Chemex, Schlumbohm desired to not only make brewing the perfect cup simple, but also to have the vessel be a thing of beauty. Inspired by the Bauhaus school of design and by non-porous labware that would impart no flavour of its own, he fashioned the hourglass shape and double bonded paper filters that would allow for the purest extraction of flavour.
Pure in form and function, the iconic Chemex has remained unchanged for 75 years and counting.On permanent display at MOMA NY and other fine museums, it is truly a work of art.
