Chemex Coffee Maker - 8 Cup - CM-8A
The Chemex coffee maker has been around since 1941 and the most discerning coffee connoisseur has been using it to make the perfect cup ever since. We love the coffee that the Chemex brews, which uses a getting setting that's in between a drip and french press - like kosher salt in size. It produces a clean cup like a drip machine, but has all the full, rich flavor like a french press. We also love the way it looks, winning multiple design awards since it's inception over 70 years ago.
The Chemex coffee maker is made of non-porous Borosilicate glass which will not absorb odors or flavors. It has a beautiful wood collar, to protect you from the heat of the glass when serving, which is tied with a natural leather tie and wood ball. The Chemex is modern and stylish yet this exact design was used for its initial patent filing in 1943.
The Chemex coffee maker does not stand alone in its claim to brew one of the best cups. The Chemex filters, still made, folded and packaged in the USA, were designed around the coffee maker and should always be used together for best brewing results. Shop Chemex Filters here.
Here's some trivia that you can use to impress your Chemex loving friends: the leather ties that are used to attach the bamboo collar to the glass should look familiar to you if you grew up playing baseball or softball. They are made by Rawlings - the famous leather baseball glove maker and those leather ties are the same ones used in your old glove. Pretty cool, huh?
