Chemex is a large hourglass-shaped vessel invented in 1941. Its considerable size makes it perfect for social get-togethers. It brews delicious coffee, clear, pure, flavoursome and, at the same time, without bitterness and sediment. The taste and texture of this beverage resemble tea rather than strong black coffee. As for its clarity and mildness, you like it or hate it. Surely you will appreciate its visual elegance, which has earned it a place in the permanent collection of New York’s Corning Museum of Glass. The Chemex coffee-maker was also selected by the Illinois Institute of Technology as one of the 100 best designed products of modern times.
