How to Brew: Chemex

When it comes to creating perfect coffee, Chemex makes it happen. The elegant and iconic hourglass shaped Chemex vessel is made of high quality, heat resistant glass – it brews coffee without imparting any flavours of its own. The Chemex has remained unchanged for 70 years and the first Chemex invented can be found on display at MOMA in New York. Chemex coffee is truly a work of art. Master it with Vibe.
