The Bodum Chambord French Press is a true original. The classic French press coffee-maker, designed in the fifties, is still produced with the same painstaking craftsmanship.
The steel frame and lid undergo several chrome plating processes to obtain a durable shiny surface lasting for many years of intense use. The only difference in the production process since the fifties is Bodum's commitment to the highest standards of environmentally-friendly manufacturing, which is especially important during the chrome-plating process. The black polypropylene handle comes in a matte finish to provide a comfortable grip whilst maintaining the classic quality of the design.
The cafetiere (or French press) is still the most straightforward way of brewing an excellent cup of coffee.
Using fresh, coarse-ground beans with water between 92 and 96 degrees (just off the boil) a cafetiere brings out the very best in all types of coffee.
Dishwasher-safe, with a stainless-steel plunger the borosilicate glass beaker (made with silica and boron trioxide) is more heat resistant than normal glass.
The Chambord French Press is an 8-cup cafetiere and please note that the size of cup refers to espresso. If you have your coffee in mugs (as many of us do) the 8-cup comfortably serves two.
A chrome-plated Bodum Prench Press makes a great gift and comes with a FREE 200g bag of roasted coffee. Choose from:
Brazil Fazenda - a sweet and complex flavour with cocoa and plum/berry notes.
Decaffeinated Centrals blend - a great-tasting decaffeinated coffee, sweet, bright and smooth with a lively cocoa after-taste.
Emporium Excelso - a superb full-bodied and rich, Great Taste Award-winning coffee, earthy yet with fruity acidity and spicy smokiness.
Malawi Makoko - bright, with delicious plum and white wine notes. It is a bit like a Yirgacheffe but with pine nuts. Absolutely superb in the cafetiere.
Mexican Finca Muxbal - delicious and more-ish with juicy peach, fresh lemon, orange and floral honey notes.
For more details of these coffees please see the website.
