FvF Item of the Week: The Classic Chemex Coffee Carafe
Life’s too short for bad coffee, and here at Freunde von Freunden, we live by that rule! We spotted the Chemex Coffee Maker in artist Steven Harrington’s atelier in LA and are fans of it's simple yet modern design aesthetic.
Patented in 1941 by the German born Dr. Peter Schlumbohm, the Chemex Coffee Maker resembles an Erlenmeyer flask corseted with wood and fastened with leather. The result is said to be “a concentrated, clean cup of coffee with no sludge or bitterness."
Our friends at Five Elephant Coffee in Berlin, who provide us weekly with their specially curated coffee, visited the home of Chemex coffee makers in Pittsfield, Massachusetts! Read their story and watch the stunning video here.
You can get the Chemex Carafe in the online shop of Coffee Circle, Berlin here.
