CHEMEX® Eight Cup ChemAer
A BREATH OF FRESH AIR
Undoubtedly one of the most recognizable and elegant coffee makers available. The CHEMEX® was designed in 1941 and has been making delicious coffee ever since.
Its non-porous, heat-resistant glass construction, combined with proprietary, scientifically designed filters, produces coffee with clarity and complexity.
In fact, it's the filters that are the star of the CHEMEX® show. They are 20-30% heavier than other filters and remove even the finest sediment particles. The design of the filter facilitates the proper infusion time by regulating the filtration rate - about a 4 minute brew.
One warning: As the filters are made of heavy paper, they require a full rinse with hot water, before brewing, to remove any paper taste. It's worth noting that there are also other filter options for the CHEMEX®. If you want to try a re-usable filter that gives you a totally different, but equally delicious coffee, then check out the ABLE Kone
The CHEMEX® is so cool that it has a permanent display in the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and is how James Bond makes his coffee. What other endorsements do you need?
Since the CHEMEX® is made out of glass, you can see the coffee as it brews and, as it's a pour-over method, you can also customize your particular brew method very easily.
With the ChemAer, CHEMEX® have created a combined coffeemaker and aerator. By swirling brewed coffee against the paddles formed into the side of the ChemAer, the agitation brings more oxygen into the liquid and cools the temperature. Doing this alters the flavour beyond the initial extraction, which is where the experimentation comes in! Try it on all types of roasts, swirl to left or swirl to the right, have fun and see where to journey leads you.
The ChemAer was developed in collaboration with Trendglas and Hungarian Barista champion Attila Molnár. The goal was to create a product which offered an additional option for brewing coffee, one where anybody can enjoy the experience of experimenting with flavour in an elegant and easy way.
