Chemex® coffee makers, known for their hourglass shape, may be the only coffee makers designed by a chemist utilizing scientific principles. If the Chemex® reminds you of funnels and flasks from the biology lab, you’re correct. Indeed, the Chemex® design is based on a lab apparatus model and the chemical methods of extraction and filtration. The inventor/chemist even named his products after his vocation.
The Chemex® coffee maker and kettle are so well-designed they both received awards and are featured in a design museum. But how does the coffee taste? Because of the heat-proof laboratory-grade borosilicate glass of the Chemex®, the taste of the coffee is the only taste you’ll experience. Your coffee will be extracted perfectly because the shape of the funnel was designed according to scientific standards for perfect extraction. This attention to detail and individualizing of coffee brewing is a third wave coffee hallmark.
