DESIGNED BY Dr. Peter Schlumbohm, 1941 

The design of the carafe comes with an hourglass shape which has presently ended up a famous portion of American history. Made essentially from one piece of non-porous borosilicate glass and features a classy wooden collar around the midsection and rawhide tie which can come in a number of colors,

The CHEMEX® is immaculate in both form and function. Simple engineering in wood and non-porous glass produces pure coffee with less bitterness – to the extent that the coffee can be refrigerated and reheated without sacrificing flavor. The handblown version is produced in small batches by artisan glass blowers and which is more unique, these pieces are formed using Croatian glass.

How to use: place your Chemex coffee filter into the top of the maker, add your favorite ground coffee, pour boiling water over the grounds, and enjoy!

The CHEMEX® coffeemaker has become a design icon in the coffee world ever since its invention. The unique and simple shaped Chemex Coffeemaker was invented in 1941 by the eccentric chemist Dr. Peter Schlumbohm, he desired to not only make brewing the perfect cup simple but also have the vessel be a thing of beauty. Schlumbohm studied and understood clearly the chemistry behind the extraction of flavor and caffeine from coffee beans, therefore this knowledge also led him to invent the double-bonded CHEMEX®  paper filters to a perfect extraction. The coffeemaker has been recognized and awarded by both the scientific community as well as the art and design communities. It was also displayed in The Museum of Modern Art in 1943 as one of the best-designed products.
