Product Description

The Brazil French Press coffee maker, designed in the early 80's, was our first coffee maker and quickly became a symbol of what Bodum stands for. Attractive and functional design at an affordable price. The Brazil has a heat resistant, SAN - shatterproof beaker and a polypropylene handle and base, which make the Brazil easy to use and easy to clean. The 3-part stainless steel plunger has a fine mesh filter, which allows for a premium extraction of your coffee’s aromatic oils and subtle flavors. A mesh filter allows this flavor to be delivered direct to your cup and not absorbed by a paper filter. Plus, no paper filter means no waste. The patented safety lid prevents the splashing of liquids while pressing. All parts are dishwasher safe. This 8-cup coffeemaker is (1.0 l, 34oz.) in size and is also available in 3-cup (0.35 l, 12 oz) size model.


Customer Questions & Answers

Customer Reviews

Our press started developing cracks after 9 months daily use.
Karen Higgs
The glass beakers are too fragile for even a careful person and the shatterproof plastic seems to crack.
RhythmMan
It works well so far, keeps the coffee grounds down when pressed, and is very easy to clean.

When I got the press, I thought the price was a little high for an all plastic French press. Then it occurred to me that I'd already broken 3 glass ones at $20+ each. This guy is more than worth the buy. It's also dishwasher safe to boot.

As for the plunger; it's plastic mesh, and I thought I wouldn't like it. But it's much easier to clean than the layered metal screen in the press I had previously. And it makes a better seal so grounds do not migrate around.

From a klutzy guy, I'd say it's more than worth the $$ to keep from breaking the glass carafes.

UPDATE 09-15-11 De-rated to 3 stars.
After 1 year of use (mostly on the weekends) the polycarbonate has developed multiple hairline cracks all over it. Maybe this was from putting it the dishwasher, but who knows? When you plunge it, hot coffee shoots out of the cracks all over the place. I ended up replacing it with another glass one. If I was going to spend the extra money for a shatterproof press, you'd think it would last longer than 1 year with occasional use. I loved this thing and now I'm pretty disappointed.

First french press I've owned. Love it! Needed something that wouldn't break easily, so chose the shatterproof press. The beaker is a heavy clear plastic. Looks like glass from a distance, but very durable. The mesh filter for this product is a one-piece unit and does not disassemble into smaller parts, but works like a charm. No grounds in the coffee and easy to clean.

My husband and I love this French press! We have owned several other brands of French presses over the years, but none have made the coffee taste this good or been so effective at keeping the coffee grounds out of your cup. It really is amazing! The press is significantly better than any I've ever seen because it really seals the grounds down at the bottom. I know that from now on I'll only buy Bodum French presses.

Pros: Very smooth upon plunging, lightweight (In fact, more lightweight than a previous "backpacking" model we purchased from GSI!") Won't shatter when you drop it! Low price.

Cons: Glued slighty off-kilter (The leaning tower of Ethiopian Mordecafe!), lid doesn't fit snugly.

Overall, we love this press. We almost love it more BECAUSE of it's flaws. When we grind our beans too fine, we have no problem plunging it nice and smoothly. It forgives our flaws, so we forgives its flaws. I have used many different models in my decade working in coffee houses, and wouldn't say this is the nicest press in the world, but it sure does the trick! Due to the low price, this will get purchased by a lot of beginners. I think that you will be quite happy with your purchase!

I would recommend this model for beginners, for backpacking, and for anyone looking to get a solid press for a low price!

We bought this press to replace our other one after we had two carafes break on us for no reason. The glass was just so fragile, it didn't last more than two or three months. We were getting tired of replacing it so we figured we'd try this shatterproof one.

It's really nice to not have to worry about breaking the glass now, but this coffee press isn't as nice as our glass one was. This one is entirely made of plastic. The plunger, the handle, the lid, are all made of cheap plastic. Our major complaint is that the plunger, being a different style than in the glass carafes, always allows ground to get into our coffee. I don't know why it's doing that but our old one didn't do that and it had an entirely metal plunger.

If I could find a press with a shatterproof carafe and a metal plunger I would be happy. Why, oh why, can't Bodum make a glass carafe that doesn't break when you look at it wrong?? I much prefer the glass if it wasn't so fragile.

I bought this french press months ago because I am a klutz and broke two glass french presses over the years. I thought that this would solve my problems with dropping the glass carafe in the sink while washing it, but unfortunately it still managed to fail on me. I used my french press every single day and after I finished brewing and drinking the coffee I hand washed the press. Nothing about the way I used this was strange or out of the ordinary, but the plastic carafe still failed. All around the cylinder longitudinal cracks started to form. When I first noticed them I didn't think much of it, but in the last week of it's functionality the press would make audible cracking noises when I poured in the hot water, and eventually it started leaking out of the cracks all over the press. I suppose that it did not shatter, so their claim of "shatterproof" is still intact.

In addition to the the total failure of the device in less than a year, the quality of the filter is much worse than the one found on the glass chambord model. Instead of having the nice three piece unit that can be taken apart and cleaned, this one includes a single plastic piece.

If you are looking for a french press and you think you can avoid dropping it, or banging it against things, buy a glass model, because this thing is was a piece of junk for me.
