CHICOPEE, Mass., US – Chemex Corporation, is proud to announce the 80th Anniversary of the iconic Chemex Coffeemaker. Few products can match the flawless blending of design and function of the Chemex®, which has remained unchanged to this day. Its visual elegance has earned it its place in permanent collections of many of the most prestigious museums worldwide.
The story began in a Manhattan workshop during the late 1930’s. The eccentric inventor Dr. Peter Schlumbohm was experimenting with chemical reactions using various lab ware in pursuit of brewing the perfect cup of coffee. Already known for creating many intriguing patents or “Beautilties” to enhance one’s lifestyle, he was determined to make delicious coffee easy, healthy and stylish for anyone to brew. Through this the Chemex Coffeemaker and Chemex brand were created in 1941, along with a loyal following of CHEMEX users spanning from one generation to the next. At the Chemex® factory located in Massachusetts, we inspect, polish and hand-tie each coffeemaker and cut every filter – just as we always have.
To celebrate this milestone we are launching unique and celebratory products, which will excite new and longtime fans alike. The products include the Limited Edition 80th Anniversary Handblown Chemex® , with a gorgeous hand turned wooden collar, arriving in vintage inspired screen printed packaging.

“To this day, the Chemex is my favorite coffee maker…It is perfect for iced, strong, mild, light roast, dark roast and my own favorite strong brew with no bitterness while still clear and bright tasting…The fact that they’re a family business with a solid ethic is more than I could hope for, but it happens to be so.” Kevin Sinnott, Author, The Art and Craft of Coffee and Creator/Host: CoffeeCon Consumer Coffee Event
