Mary Tyler Moore: Chemex

One of the first things you notice watching Mary Tyler Moore is how she is constantly making coffee. Good hostessing in 70's style wouldn't be complete without a Chemex carafe in glass and wood.

The elegant, artisanal design seems perfect for our modern sensibilities too. They're already on the return, SFMOMA has started selling them in the museum gift shop.

It's gorgeous! And perhaps especially appropriate for September and a back-to-school mentality....

My grandparents had this exact coffee maker--I remember from the late 1960s-early 1970s!

Mary was quite the entertainer. Be sure to watch the Dinner Party episode, when Mary makes "Veal Prince Orloff." It is hilarious, as usual, with Sue Nevins (Betty White) up to her old tricks.

I will never forget that show.
