Rad Suit, Bad Quote
One of our great customers and coffee aficionado, Eric, sent us this link tonight on an article about the Chemex Coffee Maker and it’s inventor, Dr. Peter Schlumbohm (click here). The article quotes Schumbohm in a Time Magazine article written back in 1946 – “with a Chemex, even a moron can make good coffee.” Ok, we’ll give credit to Dr Schumbohm for wearing a really rad suit in the classic picture shown above and for inventing one of the greatest coffee brewing systems.
Along with a French Press menu, we serve Chemex brewed coffee daily and it’s awesome. If Dr. Schumbohm were still around I would say to him – yes, you have invented a great brewing system but garbage in = garbage out. At the end of the day it’s all about the quality of the coffee, quality and temperature of the water, grind and true passion for the coffee.
