If you’re looking to up your coffee game, throw out your old coffee pot and get serious about pour-over brewing the folks over at Dear Coffee I Love You have a great resource for coffeephiles looking for more information on Chemex coffee brewers:

“The Chemex is possibly the most elegant looking of all brewing devices and one of my favorite ways to make coffee. It was designed in 1941 by a German chemist, Dr. Peter Schlumbohm, who immigrated to the United States in 1935. The modern hourglass shape of the Chemex, hugged in the middle by a wooden collar and leather tie, became a part of MoMA’s permanent collection in 1944—just a few years after its invention.

Apart from its sophisticated design, it makes an equally great cup of coffee when it’s not looking beautiful on your counter or the walls of a modern art museum.”

Jessica Hundley describes the features best: “The Chemex combines a pour over filter cone with a beautiful glass decanter. The defining feature of this method is an ultra thick paper filter set flush against the walls. Because the thick paper filter sits flush against the walls of the server, water flows through the grounds more slowly and the dwell time is longer than other pour over methods. This is helpful, as brewing a tasty cup is less dependent on the skill of the user and more on precise and well-chosen parameters. The Chemex highlights the brighter notes in coffee and yields a clean, sweet cup.

There is an alternate, glass-handled design that is easier to clean and allows a better view of the coffee brewing process. Aesthetics and quality aside, we like the Chemex for its ease of use. In regards to pour over devices, we find the Chemex to be one of the easiest for beginners to take up. The thickness of the filter and slower brew time allows for a greater margin of error, while the one-piece design reduces spills and can be less intimidating to handle.”
