BEHOLD. The Chemex® Coffee Maker
This sensually shaped hour glass vessel enticed me back in the 80's when I didn't even drink coffee. Now that I am a coffee purist and design geek, I find that this elegant, pop culture, iconic brewer still makes the best cup of coffee EVER...clear, pure, and without the added flavor of metal or plastic.
I love the uncomplicated polished wood collar and leather tie that corset the curves and serve as the handle. Design and function! That makes me smile, always.
BTW - the original design was by a German inventor named Peter Schlumbohm in 1941. You can still buy the Chemex today! They haven't changed.
