The Chemex Corporation has been family owned since 1980, following the invention of the Chemex Coffeemaker by Dr. Peter Schlumbohm PhD in 1941. As a company, our mission is to provide superior coffee brewing equipment. The company headquarters are located in Western Massachusetts, which doubles as the company manufacturing too. The company produces a range of products, including the popular Chemex coffeemaker, bonded filters, hand-blown water kettles and accessories. These are now distributed worldwide. The Chemex is made from non-porous, borosilicate glass and fastened with a wood collar and tie, it brews coffee without imparting any flavors of its own. The iconic Chemex has remained unchanged for 70 years and counting.
