The Chemex® coffeemaker was invented by Peter J. Schlumbohm, Ph.D., in 1941.

Being a doctor of Chemistry, he was very familiar with laboratory apparatus and the methods of filtration and extraction. He modified the laboratory funnel by adding an "air channel" and a pouring spout. He added the air channel so the air displaced by the liquid dripping into the vessel could easily escape past the laboratory filter paper, which was to be used in the funnel as the filter media.

Last, he added a wood handle and called the item a "Chemex," which was a fabricated name. All that was needed then to brew the coffee was the coffee, hot water, and filter paper.
