The Chemex coffee maker is absolutely unique in every respect. Filter coffee of incomparable clarity and the outstanding design ensure that the Chemex is not without reason a category of its own among our brewing methods. The carafe is made in one piece from heat-resistant borosilicate glass and has a glass handle that is attached in the middle instead of the traditional wooden sleeve. Although the carafe warms up during coffee brewing, the glass handle remains cool enough and allows for very comfortable handling.
With the Chemex, coffee is brewed in the same way as with conventional hand filters, but is served directly from the carafe. In the kitchen and on the breakfast table, the Chemex is an absolute eye-catcher, because a practical and elegant coffee maker combines functionality and design. Matching accessories in the characteristic Chemex design such as cups, glass lids and kettle complete the ensemble.
Chemex has launched a completely new type of paper filter in addition to the innovative carafe. The paper used is 20-30% thicker than conventional filters and has a particularly fine-pored structure. This means that considerably more oils and very small particles are retained during the brewing process. The result is a very clear, aromatic filter coffee, which typically underlines the natural sweetness of the coffee.
ts extraordinary design in the form of an hourglass has won many awards and has earned the Chemex a permanent place in the exhibition of the Museum of Modern Art in New York and a place in the Top 100 design products of modernity. It was invented by the German chemist Dr. Peter J. Schlumbohm, a chemist and frahling enthusiast living in New York at the beginning of the last century who designed the Chemex with all his experience in filter techniques and extraction processes. For example, the channel in the upper part of the jug not only makes pouring easier but also allows water vapor from the already filtered coffee to escape from the belly of the Chemex past the filter.
Owners of the Chemex do not have to be restricted to filter coffee brewing. Of course, the long-lasting glass carafe is also suitable for brewing good teas. The special glass absorbs practically no foreign aromas. Brewing coffee over ice cubes in summer is also very popular. With the so-called „Ice Brew“, about half of the water is added to the carafe as ice cubes and the normal amount of coffee is brewed hot with the remaining water. The coffee drips onto the ice and cools down immediately. The result is a particularly mild, aromatic coffee that ensures a refreshing coffee pleasure even on warm summer days.
