Chemex Handmade 8-Cup Coffee Maker
This simple design from the 1940s still makes one of the best cups of coffee, hands-down. For an in-depth look at the design and history of the Chemex coffeemaker, check out the post on our blog.
This is the version created as it was originally designed - mouth-blown heat-resistant glass, the wooden collar, the leather tie. The angles that go straight down instead of rounding at the bottom. The slightly heavier weight in the hand. The one that's in MoMA's permanent collection.
Chemex measures cups as 5 oz each, so this 8-cup coffee maker really makes 4-6 modern cups of coffee.
9-1/2" high, 6" diameter. 40 ounce capacity.
