Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About The Chemex

Invention And History

The Chemex, invented in 1941, was arguably the first coffeemaker to emphasize form alongside function. Created by chemist Dr. Peter Schlumbohm, it was intended to be a work of art as well as an effective tool. (He referred to them as “Beautilities.”) Schlumbohm wanted to reimagine the perfect cup of coffee—to strip this basic act down to its very essentials and reshape it from the ground up—and this began with design.

Pour Over Brewing

All About Coffee Brewing Tips
Pour Over Brewing

Hand poured coffee, like so many activities, was once the only method of brewing coffee. Then coffee machines were invented, and people were eager to get the machines to do the work for them. Now, interestingly, in a quest for integrity and quality, we are creeping back in the other direction. Pour over coffee, a method begun in 1900s Germany but mostly imported from Japan, has caught on like wildfire among U.S. artisanal coffee drinkers because of three essential aspects: flavor, process and story.

What is the Vacuum Pot?

What is the Vacuum Pot?

The vacuum pot (also called the vac pot or siphon) method of brewing coffee is one of the oldest techniques still in use today—beautiful with its ornate design and sleek glassware. It revolutionized nineteenth-century coffeemaking in Europe after its invention in Germany in 1830. Much like the Chemex brewer, it fell out of favor in the mid-20th century for what came to be seen as unnecessary requirements in brewing: patience, practice and a steep learning curve. However, also like the Chemex, the vacuum pot is now enjoying something of a renaissance among fans of artisanal coffee.

How Brewing Technique Affects Taste

The temperature of the brewing water—cold, room temperature, warm or boiling—has a profound effect on the flavor of the finished product. Steeping time, likewise, has a significant impact on the quality of the finished product. Pressure plays a big role, and even such seemingly trivial factors as filter material and whether to cover the pot while brewing have their say in the final cup. Many people take coffee quite seriously and believe wholeheartedly what others shrug off—that brewing technique has much (though not everything) to do with how good (or bad) that cup of coffee tastes.

How Hot Should A Cup of Coffee Be Served?

A hot bath means different things to different people—one man’s “toasty” is someone else’s “scalding.” And so it is with coffee—some may like it hot, but there is a wide range of preferences on just how hot “hot” is.
