What people are saying about the Chemex coffeemaker...
The Chemex almost looks like something out of a science experiment. It looks cool and shows friends that you are a true coffee geek. Even better than that is the coffee that it brews. It produces stronger coffee than from a drip brewer, with a smoother taste and more flavor.
If you want a new and interesting way to make great coffee, the Chemex Drip Device is the perfect place to start. Not only does the Chemex Drip Device make delicious coffee, but it also looks interesting and works well as a part of a kitchen décor.
Often, a pedigree like this speaks to form more than function — plenty of gorgeous, impractical things are found at MoMA. But the Chemex really works, a cult object within the world of coffee.
Modern by Design taps ordinary 20th century items which The Museum of Modern Art in New York bought for their permanent collection — and are now lending to the High.
The Chemex coffee maker not only has a place in the Museum of Modern Art, its elegance and function have earned it a permanent place on my kitchen counter.
You will love your coffee. Even if you already purchase quality coffee from a careful roaster, this method preserves the flavor notes that the roaster mentions in tasting notes. You should be able to prepare the full batch within 4 to 5 minutes, which can seem a long time, but is so worth the taste.
