The Chemex Coffeemaker was invented in 1941 by Dr. Peter Schlunbohm, a German chemist. He defected to America in 1931 and in 1939, he filed a patent for a “filtering device”. The original version included a spout and handle, much more complex than the final familiar version, and was intended for multiple uses, including laboratory filtering processes. Two years later, the final version as we know it today was created.
With the Chemex method, you can make coffee as strong as you like without bitterness. It utilises the infusion method of brewing coffee. This makes it a lot like a dripper, but the coffee this method produces is much richer, has loads more flavour, and is much smoother, mmm. So we have tracked down some resources to help you brew Chemex style.
