A simple, easy to use coffee maker with a timeless, elegant design, the Chemex Eight Cup Classic will give you a perfect cup every time. Chosen as one of the 100 best designed products of modern times, the iconic hourglass shaped vessel is made of high quality, heat resistant glass, brewing coffee without imparting any flavours of its own. The polished wood collar with the original rawhide leather tie serves as an insulated handle around the middle of the coffeemaker. With the Chemex method, you can make coffee as strong as you like without bitterness. It's also perfect for iced coffee and coffee flavouring for gourmet recipes. Because of its purity, Chemex brewed coffee can be covered and stored in the refrigerator for reheating ... without losing its flavour.
