Design meets really good coffee
The hand-blown Chemex is the highest quality version of the popular coffee carafe. Fans of the design classic will be delighted with this version of the beautifully shaped brewer. It is handmade from heat-resistant borosilicate glass and visibly thicker than the regular Chemex. Therefore it is even more solid and fits especially well in the hand. The spout and the upper edges are also much more delicate. In real handicraft noble coffee carafes are created to meet the highest standards.
What is so special about coffee from Chemex?
In addition to the innovative carafe, Chemex has launched a completely new type of paper filter. The filter paper 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, nuanced filter coffee, which typically emphasizes the natural sweetness of the coffee. The Chemex allows high-quality coffees to unleash their full taste potential and is ideal for coffee drinkers who prefer a fine and extremely aromatic coffee.
The unusual 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 as well as a place in the Top 100 design products of modernity. The German chemist Dr. Peter J. Schlumbohm, who lived in New York at the time, designed the Chemex in 1939 with all his experience in filter techniques and extraction processes. For example, the channel in the upper half of the jug not only makes pouring easier but also allows water vapor from the already filtered coffee to escape past the filter and out of the belly of the Chemex.
Versatile in use
The Chemex is not exclusively for brewing filter coffee. Of course, the long-lasting glass carafe is also suitable for brewing teas, because the special glass does not take on any foreign aromas. In summer it is also possible to brew coffee over ice cubes: In the so-called „Ice Brew“ the water quantity is divided in a ratio of 50:50. One half of the water is put into the carafe as ice cubes, the other half of the water is used to brew the coffee (above the ice cubes). The freshly brewed, hot coffee drips onto the ice and cools down immediately. The result is a particularly mild, aromatic coffee that ensures refreshing coffee enjoyment even on warm summer days.
