How To French Press

Do you love coffee as much as we do? Have you always wondered what a French press is or if it is the right fix for your particular caffeine addiction? Let us explain with the help of our friends at Bodum!

In the 1970's Bodum introduced the now iconic Chambord French press, which continues to be their most popular item. Let us tell you that the French press coffee maker is the simplest of all coffee brewing methods. Coarsely ground beans meet hot water right off the boil. The right temperature (92-96 degrees C, 195 -205 degrees F) brings the optimal extraction power for the essential oils of the beans to deliver their full flavour profile in just four minutes. An easy press on the plunger locks the grinds at the bottom of the carafe to stop the brewing process. Pour, sip and enjoy!

4 easy steps to exceptional coffee at home!

From the iconic Chambordpress to the sophisticated insulated Columbia press, Bodum offers a range of French press styles and sizes. So whether it is coffee on the go or a crowd for brunch, a Bodum French press coffee maker can work for you. Do you know why else we love them? No filters, no capsules and no fuss. Even the stainless steel mesh filter is dishwasher safe and lasts for years of daily use!

The elegant Bodum 8 Cup Copper Chambord Press

Keep in mind that Bodum uses 'cups' to differentiate between sizes and this does not refer to metric cups or mugs, but a European coffee cup which is 4 ounces (espresso size). So the 8 cup (32 ounces) Chambord Press is more like 3 North American coffee mugs. The smallest Bodum coffee press is 3 cups which is perfect for one large mug. And THAT is how you French press.
