History of the Chemex
Have you ever had a cup of Chemex coffee? If you haven’t, you should. This beautiful and elegantly simple piece of technology and art produces a wonderful cup of coffee and is a go-to for many of the coffee afficianados I know (though I’m more of a french press man myself).
Here is an article all about the Chemex, and its inventor Dr. Peter Schlumbohm. Turns out it’s been around for 70 years, with the design largely unchanged. The thing has been in the freakin’ Museum Of Modern Art. Since you like my site I have a feeling you like 50’s advertising, elegant design, a story of invention, an interesting read, and above all coffee nerdery. This article has it all.
