The Chemex is for those that like exceptionally bright and clean coffees with tons of flavor clarity and little body.

Designed by a German chemist in 1941, the Chemex is one of our favorite ways to make coffee. It’s beautiful and distinct hourglass shape make it one of most beautiful brewers out there, but that’s not the only reason to love it.

Our favorite feature of the Chemex is the thick, triple-layered paper filter that accentuates the clarity of the cup, enhancing brightness and nuance, while eliminating any body that could get in its way. Perhaps the cleanest cup coffee, it’s hard to beat this classic brewer.
