The Chemex is a popular brewing device in the coffee industry that is known for its clean and full-bodied cup of coffee. It was invented in 1941 by a German chemist named Peter Schlumbohm. The Chemex is praised for its simple yet elegant design, with a glass flask and a wooden collar tied with a leather strap.

This manual pour-over method uses a special Chemex filter that is thicker than most other filters, resulting in a slower extraction process. This allows for a more controlled brewing process, ensuring that only the purest flavors and aromas are extracted from the coffee grounds.

The Chemex has gained a loyal following among coffee enthusiasts and has become a staple in specialty coffee shops around the world. Its unique design and ability to brew a clean and flavorful cup of coffee have made it a favorite among those who appreciate the art of coffee brewing.
