One method of making coffee stands out to us among the others because it resembles a laboratory instrument more than a coffee maker.

In this case, using a Chemex coffee maker to prepare coffee is in question. a technique for extracting coffee that has recently gained enormous popularity among enthusiasts, particularly among the younger ones.

A brief history
Water drips down a layer of coffee and a filter, often made of paper, using the Chemex drip technique. Because it uses a paper filter system, the coffee is exceptionally clean, and the filters are 25% heavier than standard filters to prevent particles from passing through.
The scientist Peter J. Schlumbohm, a member of the Bauhaus movement, invented it in 1941. Today, it is not only still in use but is also regarded as one of the best filter coffee makers and a design classic.
Schlumbohm was inspired by two laboratory instruments, his laboratory glass embedder, and his Erlenmeyer Matraz, and he continued to improve it until he produced what is now known as the Chemex coffee maker.

Now that we are more knowledgeable about this instrument, let's see how a cup of coffee is made.

Make sure the coffee is dispersed evenly after adding it to the filter.
Pour water in the center, making little circles to soak the coffee while avoiding flooding the area.
We re-wet the filter by pouring water on it in broader circles after waiting 20 seconds.
Wait after adding water up to two centimeters from the filter's edge.

To keep the coffee from clogging the filter, mix it using a stirrer.
