Classic chemistry. Meet your favorite coffee aficionado lurking in the kitchenware section of a thrift store and they're likely looking for one of these. The Chemex has been around since 1941, proof that sometimes the simple, elegant solution outlasts the all the gimmicky gadgets.
Designed by a chemist to yield rich, full flavored cup of coffee with no fine grounds or bitterness, the secret is in the thick, plushy paper filter.
Manufactured in Massachusetts, this coffee maker is simplicity itself: glass, wood, and a leather thong. Holds 30 ounces of coffee, enough to share with a friend or two. Brewing by yourself? There's always the mini Chemex.
Please note: Chemex filters are sold separately. Buy them here!
