Chemex Classic 6-cup

As one of very few coffee makers featured in MOMA’s permanent collection, the Chemex is known for its iconic glass design featuring a wooden and leather insulated handle. Invented in Germany in 1941, this pour-over brewer uses an ultra-thick filter, resulting in coffee with clarity and complexity. Like all pour-over brewers, it’s easy to customize your particular brew method to ensure the best extraction. We appreciate its beauty and practicality as a simple way of making several cups of coffee at a time.
