The Chemex Coffeemaker was invented in 1941 by Dr. Peter Schlumbohm PhD. Made simply from non-porous, borosilicate glass and fastened with a wood collar and tie, it brews coffee without imparting any flavors of its own. On permanent display at MOMA NY and other fine museums, it is truly a work of art.
We are a family owned company with our headquarters located in Western Massachusetts. It is here that we manufacture the Chemex Coffeemakers, Chemex bonded filters, Handblown water kettle and Chemex accessories to be distributed worldwide.
Our mission is to provide superior coffee brewing equipment. The iconic Chemex has remained unchanged for 70 years and counting. We take pride in the quality of our product and customer service and look forward to providing both for years to come.
