The Chemex is an iconic brand of pour-over coffee brewer, invented in 1941 by an American Chemist, Dr. Peter Schlumbohm and included in MOMA’s permanent design collection. While iconic, the Chemex coffeemaker’s design is enduringly simple; consisting of a heat-resistant hourglass-shaped glass flask with a funnel-shaped neck and a wooden collar for insulated/heatproof handling. The wooden collar allows the entire apparatus to be handled safely when full of hot coffee. The high-quality borosilicate glass is non-porous and does not add impurities, contaminants or flavours to the brewed coffee. The Chemex uses proprietary disposable, unbleached paper filters which are made from a thicker paper than traditional coffee paper filters.

ChemexThe thicker paper in Chemex filters allows for a slower brew and a rich cup of sediment-free coffee. The thick paper filter helps to remove more of the oils from the ground coffee beans during the pour-over brewing process. This results in a ‘cleaner' tasting coffee when compared to other similar pour-over brewers. The thickness of the Chemex paper filters may also help to reduce the presence of the cholesterol-elevating cafestol in the final beverage.

Today the Chemex coffeemaker, Chemex bonded paper filters, handblown water kettles, and Chemex accessories are all manufactured in Western Massachusetts. The Chemex coffeemaker now comes in a variety of capacity sizes from small three cups, to six, eight and ten cup sizes.

Owing to its relatively small size and the fact that it does not require electricity to operate, the Chemex makes an excellent addition to a portable coffee brewing kit.

FAQ

Chemex is better for some people as the taste is smoother and the brew bright and clear. Whether Chemex is really better is a matter of taste. But if you like light, smooth coffee, pour over coffee is definitely worth it and Chemex could be a better choice.

Here’s how a Chemex works:
  1. Filter and coffee are placed on top of the Chemex carafe.
  2. Water is poured slowly and gravity works it through the coffee grounds.
  3. The thicker Chemex filter ensures slow extraction.
  4. This produces thicker, richer coffee.
Here's how you make coffee in a Chemex:
  1. Heat water to 205 degrees (boil and sit for 30 secs).
  2. Place the chemex filter into the brewer, ensuring the spout is aligned with the three layered side.
  3. Pour hot water around the edge of the chemex filter for approx 5 secs, and wait for your coffee.
Chemex is different from pour over mainly as the thicker filter impedes the flow of water through the coffee, leading to longer extraction than pour over, giving Chemex coffee its unique full flavour. Also, the Chemex brewer is filter and carafe in one and produces more cups of coffee per brew than other pour over methods.
Chemex coffee is better than French press coffee, for those who prefer a clearer brew. Why Chemex tastes better to some is because Chemex coffee is lighter in comparison. Whether Chemex or French press is better is entirely your preference.
You should use a medium coarse grind for Chemex. The grind you use for Chemex is very important: a coarse grind similar to table salt should work.
