Background
The Chemex was first created by the german chemist Peter Schlumbohm, an eccentric character and well known inventor that got his creation in the MoMA’s collection in 1944.
The design remains almost unchanged, apart from its Pyrex glass manufacturer and the glass handle which was substituted by the wood holder. The system follows the same principle as the drip but it gains the thumbs up when you have more than one guest which will serve till 5.

The next recipe is for two full cups of coffee.
