Chemex combines simple function with visual elegance. 

Hard to believe that this cool looking piece of glassware has been around since 1941! The most visually distinctive feature of the Chemex is the heatproof wooden collar around the neck, which allows it to be easily handled and poured when full of hot coffee. The collar is turned and then split in two to allow it to fit around the glass neck. The two pieces are held loosely in place by a tied leather thong. For a design piece that became popular post-war at a time of Modernism and precision manufacture, this juxtaposition of natural wood and the organic nature of a hand-tied knot with the sciency look of glassware is a distinctive feature of its appearance.

The Chemex coffeemaker consists of an hourglass-shaped glass flask (of varying cup sizes) with a conical funnel-like neck and thick filters, made of bonded paper, that are thicker than the standard paper filters used for a drip coffeemaker. The thicker paper of the Chemex filters removes most of the coffee oils and makes coffee that is much "cleaner" than coffee brewed in other coffee-making systems. The thicker filters may also assist in removing more cafestol, a cholesterol-elevating compound found in coffee.

With the Chemex method, you can make coffee as strong as you like without bitterness. Perfect for iced coffee and coffee flavouring for gourmet recipes. Because of its purity, Chemex brewed coffee can be covered and stored in the refrigerator for reheating...without losing its flavour!

This is the “go to” in our house to make our iced Coffee’s for those hot QLD days!
