This iconic coffee brewer was invented in 1941 and has looked the same with its glass body and wooden- or glass handle since then — and has won prizes for its design. With it, you brew coffee through a paper filter straight into the elegant serving jug — both good tasting and good looking! Perfect brewing method for fruity and light coffees.

Here is how you do it
Heat up the water. Put the paper filter in the brewer and pour some hot water over the filter to rinse it — it makes the paper flavor disappear. Empty the chemex of this water. Grind the coffee course and put it into the filter. Measure the water, either in cl in a jug beforehand or in grams during brewing. Start by covering all the coffee with a little bit of water to let it «bloom». Let it rest for 30 seconds and then keep pouring the full amount of water slowly during 3,5 minutes. Let it cool down slightly before you drink it — this way you´ll experience the flavours even more intense.
