Enjoy perfect filter coffee with a Chemex coffee maker
Invented in 1941 by Dr Peter Schlumbohm PhD, the Chemex coffee maker, with its elegant, hourglass shaped vessel, polished wood collar and leather tie is as much a work of art as it is a functional piece of equipment.
If getting a great tasting coffee at home is proving to be a costly and time consuming exercise, it needn’t be. The Chemex coffee maker promises the perfect cup of coffee, every time, and can be bought in Australia for as little as $50.00. The paper filters will set you back around $15.00 but it’s a small price to pay when you consider how much you’ve spent on takeaway coffees in the past few days/weeks/months. The brewing process is so simple it seems almost too good to be true and the result is clear, pure, flavourful coffee that is free from bitterness or sediment. The secret to the Chemex’s amazing flavour is that the coffee only comes in contact with the scientifically designed filter Chemex Bonded filters that only allow aromatic coffee oils and caffeine to pass through to the non-porous glass. The best part is, the coffee maker has no moving parts so it will last forever and cleaning it is as simple as removing the filter and rinsing the glass vessel.
The Chemex coffee maker is available in Australia from Coffee Supreme and you can choose between four sizes – three, six, eight and ten cup. The kind folks have also prepared a Brew Guide so you can really perfect your pot.
