TB 7: The Modern Art Seal of Approval

Today on the Top Brew (coffee) podcast, Eric Rauch and I present and review the Chemex coffeemaker. Since 1941, this artisanal brewing device has made many a coffee enthusiast out of an ordinary coffee drinker.

We weighed the pros and cons of going with a pour-over, compared the Chemex to the Hario V60, gave our favorite Chemex recipe, and basically said everything that should ever be said about this hourglass shaped flask. It’s a coffeemaker that thrives on a good visual presentation.
