I love coffee and these days I love making it at home as often as possible rather than blowing the cash at a coffee shop. Well this is my favorite way to make coffee. What’s not to love about combining beautiful design, science and coffee? I am not a major coffee snob by any means but I do have an appreciation for a cup of joe that:
- Can be easily made at home by non coffee snobs
- Tastes lovely
- Is designed beautifully
Well the Chemex is all three.
The photo of above is of the inventor Peter Schlumbohm with two other of his inventions. I think he has over 3,000 patents? I can’t be sure and I am not trying to be Wikipedia here. In addition to my three reasons above, I also love the Chemex because every morning I feel a little like a mad scientist making my coffee.
