Chrome 1932 – 12 Cup
The Chambord French Presses are as worthy a part of this family as the teapots and coffee cups. Made of the same high quality chrome plated steel and heat resistant glass with a beautiful silk matte plastic handle, it will look new even after two to three years in and out of the dishwasher.
If you’re still making drip coffee, it’s time to move up and go french press. It is very simple and better in every way. Most french press coffee drinkers are unmovable on one point, which is the necessity to brew their coffee in a glass container only. I used to be part of this group, and I broke beaker after beaker in all the coffee presses I ever had.
I had a polycarbonate coffee press from Brazil and it lasted many years but finally came apart because it was made in two pieces. The two pieces simply came apart because they were not injection-molded as one piece.
When I discovered this Bodum Chambord 12-cup press I was delighted to find that is absolutely perfect for me. The beaker is made of polycarbonate, like my old Brazilian one, but the Bodum is one solid piece, with no seams to come apart. Another nice feature is the beaker being big enough in diameter so I can get my hand in it easily, making it easy to clean the coffee pot thoroughly.
The coffee tastes great and unless I do something exceptionally stupid, this coffee pot should last me forever.
Coffee taste has to be the most important issue. If you have not tried French press, then you don’t know what you’re missing. When using the press method, the steeping process means your ground coffee is in contact with the hot water for a longer time, releasing more flavor from the ground beans. It is true when your told how paper cones can absorb some of the oils. You will taste the difference in flavor when you are not using paper filters immediately. On the environmental side, I like that on a day to day basis, I’m not consuming a paper product, with all the environmental effects it has.
This coffee press has been a lifesaver for me. I find two of the most important times I find this press to be useful is both at home and at work.
The coffee at work in the breakroom is nasty, so I’ve started keeping coffee in my desk drawers and brewing my own coffee with my bodum press. I love the slightly oily, fresh brewed taste that the breakroom does not offer. This press has helped me realize that good coffee beans can make a world of difference. At home, I save on my electric because I don’t have to use an electric coffee maker.
My bodum coffee press is easy to use, clean and put away. It is indeed a must have. This portable coffee press is among the most popular of all coffee presses because of its classic design and simple functionality. The price is also reasonable considering the excellent craftsmanship and dependability of this coffee press when it comes to producing delicious coffee.
