Chemex Brew Guide

History of the Chemex

The chemex is a timeless piece of brewing equipment invented in 1941. It’s made of non-porous borosilicate glass. For those of us who aren’t scientists, what that means is that it doesn’t absorb odors easily and you can clean it easily.  Not only is it super easy to use, but it’s appealing on your shelf too.

There are a range of different types of chemex, but most commonly, you’ll find they come in a range of sizes to suit the amount of coffee you’d like to make and all consist of a wooden handle around the neck.
