Product Description

Product Description

A fast, easy, and space-saving way to brew black or flavored coffees or any variety of teas, this 8-cup (1 liter; 32 ounces) thermal press pot brings versatility and calm to the daily routine. The handsome stainless-steel unit sports a polished finish, as well as a unique double-walled design that keeps its contents hot for up to two hours--no more preparing hot drinks in a coffeemaker or teapot and then transferring them to a thermos to keep warm. Even more, its stainless-steel plunger features a fine mesh filter assembly that eliminates the mess and waste of disposable filters and helps to retain coffee's subtle flavors, resulting in a delicious alternative to the diluted taste that occurs when brewed through a paper filter. Additional highlights include an oversized ergonomic handle for a steady grip while dispensing or transporting, a handled safety lid that twists closed to prevent liquids from splashing or heat from escaping through the spout between pours, and an included measuring spoon and instruction manual. The thermal press pot cleans up quickly in the dishwasher and measures approximately 5-2/7 by 6-8/9 by 8-1/2 inches.

Ideal for home or office, this French press coffeemaker doubles as an insulated thermos so coffee stays hot and fresh for up to two hours. The pot holds 34 ounces (1 liter), nearly seven 5-ounce cups, and can be used for brewing tea as well as coffee. It's made of stainless steel polished to a mirror-finish, has a large, comfortable handle, and is dishwasher-safe. The lid seals in heat remarkably well and turns to prevent heat from escaping through the spout between pours. The pot stands 8-1/2 inches high, including the plunger top. --Fred Brack

Seems pricey but you'll quickly forget about the $. It's the very best coffee accessory I've ever purchased. The filter part of the french press is perfect. Makes a suction sound as you press it down because the fit is so precise. Virtually no coffee grounds make their way into your cup. And why didn't someone think before of making an insulated french press? In use every day at our house.

I've used this press daily for a number of years now. It is a great way to make the absolute best coffee every morning. I am convinced that there is no better way to make the best coffee. My wife and I also take it with us when we travel, so that we can continue to have our great coffee in the morning while we are traveling. After all these years and countless travel trips, it's a bit dented and banged up, but it still makes great coffee every morning.

I have noticed that a number of reviewers have mentioned that the coffee doesn't remain as hot as they would like. Here's how I get around that problem.

First of all, I don't think any french press design is really suited to keeping coffee hot for a long time. If you want that then perhaps you should stay with a Mr. Coffee or a percolator.

That being said, I do like to have my coffee hot for up to an hour each morning. I purchased the 8-cup Bodum and it produces just enough coffee for my wife and I to have a large mug of coffee, with enough left over for a warmup for each of us. If we're wanting more coffee after this, then we simply brew a 2nd pot. It's so easy to use the Bodum that it's not a bother to brew a 2nd pot on these days. So, we're not trying to keep hot coffee for a couple of hours in the morning. No french press can do that well.

When I want to make coffee in the morning, the first thing I do is fill the Bodum pot with hot tap water to warm it up a bit. Then I begin heating the water that will be used on the freshly ground coffee beans. When the water is ready for pouring over the grounds I empty the warm tap water, place my freshly ground coffee in the Bodum pot, then pour the near-boiling water over the grounds and let it set for 4 minutes.

French Press coffee has one downside, if you do not serve the whole pot when it is first made then it tends to be coolish. This pot can be a help. It is not perfect but it keeps the coffee warm-hot for awhile. I fill it full of hot tap water before I make the coffee in it and then the coffee stays warm longer. I think it is the best press on the market at this price.
The other thing to be aware of is that when these coffee pots are rated for 10-12 cups that they are something less. The cups they are talking about are four ounce cups. These coffee pots make 4 regular cups of coffee and no more. PS: This is a good way to cut your coffee shop bill.

This press is great. I bought it in combination with the Bodum 5679-01USA C-Mill Blade Grinder. It is all we use anymore. So the perfect cup of coffee?

Fill the press with hot water to preheat it.
Put a kettle of distilled or filtered water on stove.
Grind 1/4 cup (adjust for type and preference) of fresh beans. I do about 10 seconds in the Bodum grinder, the key is you want it fairly coarse.
As the water comes to a boil put the ground coffee in press and add just enough hot water to cover and then fill your cups up with hot water to preheat them.
After a minute fill press to within an inch of top.
Let brew for 4 1/2 minutes, stirring occasionally with something that won't scratch surface of press.
Press very slowly, if you meet resistance, raise it up a little and continue.
That's it, you'll be amazed at the results. The variables are going to be the amount of beans that you grind, the amount of time you grind them and the length of time you brew, so keep track of what you do and keep mixing it up until you arrive at perfection.

I've been using the 8-cup Columbia French Press since it was introduced. I prefer French Press coffee to the other brewing methods but one thing kept me from using my traditional glass Bodum press pot, and that was the multi-piece filter. That filter never failed to trap coffee grounds in between the layers and I was constantly taking it apart for cleaning, and in no time at all the mesh screen started to fray around the edges.

That was then, but the Columbia is now. My favorite feature in this new design is the one-piece filter. Yes, ONE PIECE! No more unscrewing the three layers for washing. This improvement was obviously needed and I wish they had done it much sooner.

Regarding the stainless steel construction, it is useful for keeping the water hot during the 4-minute brewing time, but don't think of it as a carafe that you can just leave the coffee in. If you do, it will keep extracting the coffee from the grounds and you'll wind up with an over-extracted, bitter brew. For me, the real advantage of the stainless steel is that I'm not going to break it. The traditional Bodum borosilicate glass is very easy to break.

And so, I highly recommend the Bodum Columbia press pot. And if Bodum ever creates a one-piece filter for their glass French presses (like the one SwissGold used to make), that will be another great Bodum achievement.

Enjoy the Columbia!
