A staple pourover method, for a clean rich cup, with easy cleanup.
Its Borosilicate glass construction, combined with proprietary, scientifically designed filters, produces coffee with clarity and complexity.
With the iconic style of this carafe, it's the filters that are the real star of the Chemex show. They are 20-30% heavier than other filters and remove even the finest sediment particles. The design of the filter facilitates the proper infusion time by regulating the filtration rate - about a 4 minute brew.
The quality of the design of the Chemex coffeemaker was recognized early on, and is part of New York’s Museum of Modern Art collection and other design museums.
The Chemex Coffeemaker can be spotted in several movies and shows such as Friends and Mad Men (in Don Draper's kitchen).
Graham says: Such a bulletproof brewing method. The filter helps regulate flow, so pour techniques are less critical. Cleanup is a cinch. Grind a little more coarsely for this bigger one.
