Chemex

Coffee Maker

CHEMEX® delivers the purest flavor experience.

The Chemex coffee maker was created in 1939 by famed inventor Peter J. Schlumbohm. Applying his knowledge of filtration and extraction, Mr. Schlumbohm was able to craft the vessel that would pour the perfect cup of coffee. The angles of the drip, thickness of the filter paper, and the air vent chamber allow coffee to brew in a specified time and release gases that are usually trapped in by other brewing methods. This results in a smooth, bitter-free cup in less than four minutes.

  • Made of non-porous Borosilicate glass which will not absorb odors or chemical residues
  • CHEMEX pourover allows coffee to be covered and refrigerated for reheating without losing flavor
  • Simple, easy to use with timeless, elegant design

The Classic Series, used together with the scientifically designed, patented CHEMEX Bonded Filters, will guarantee that the pour over brewing process will deliver the perfect cup of coffee, without any sediments or bitter elements.
