The Chemex Ottomatic Will Change How You Drink Coffee At Home

Available for pre-order, the Chemex Ottomatic takes all of the thought and work out of brewing the perfect cup of coffee. 

That isn't hyperbole. This lustrous machine is equipped with the newest technology to automatically manage the little, yet extremely important things like water temperature, contact time of water to coffee, balanced extraction, and wetting of the entire coffee bed, just after mom changed all of the coffee sheets.

Perfection is achieved by incorporating what Chemex is calling “Greedy Cup” Sprayhead Technology. It's essentially a complete water management system that boils and pours the most foolproof pot, free of bitterness and grounds. 

If you're still not convinced, take this into consideration: In Ian Fleming's famous Bond novel From Russia With Love, Fleming details James' habits when he's off assignment, noting that Bond brewed his joe "... in an American Chemex, of which he drank two large cups, black and without sugar."

If you're going to take down SPECTRE, good coffee is a must.
