Product Description

Product Packaging: Frustration-Free Packaging

When Bodum took over a small clarinet factory in Normandy in 1982, it was not because of the fine orchestra clarinets they were producing but because of a relatively unknown coffee maker called the Chambord which they produced as well. The reason the French press coffee maker has become one of the most popular coffeemakers in the world is pure and simple, taste. The materials (glass and stainless steel) are completely taste-free so nothing comes between your ground coffee beans. This is exactly the reason why coffee tasters use this method to determine the quality of coffee beans. No paper filter not only means no waste, but that the coffee bean's essential oils go directly to your cup, delivering the flavor that is-lost on paper filters. Simplicity works best and is the reason why the Chambord's design has not changed a bit from its original drawing. Make taste, not waste.

Makes great tasting coffee full of flavor and it is easy to use/clean.

It's easy to use, works great (no grounds in your coffee ever), and very simple to clean up.
Melissa
The perfect size for one person,,,, it makes about 2 cups of the best coffee.

This is THE brand to use if you use a French press. You will never have any trouble with coffee grounds in your coffee. The press fits perfectly and the screen is fine enough to keep even the smallest grinds from leaking through. Only one caution, 4 cups means 4 small cups of coffee. If you use a mug, its 2 1/2 to 3.

This wasn't the first french press I tried, so I was well-aware that the french press method makes a fuller, superior coffee to an electric drip setup. The temperature of the water is more controlled (I tend to simply wait sixty seconds with the kettle off of heat before pouring), the lack of a filter, which allows the grounds to be in direct contact with the coffee for an extended period, makes for a thick, satisfying cup. With the right grind (and fresh beans ground immediately before brewing), this makes better coffee than I've ever had inside or outside of my own home.

And if you're already aware of the wonders of pressed coffee, the Chambord in particular is a superior press. The stainless steel frame gives it an indestructible feel and makes it quite attractive on one's countertop. Also, the actual plunger is a much more snug fit than other presses I've encountered, minimizing the sludge in the coffee. Strangely, though, the plunger doesn't extend down completely, so make sure you serve it immediately if your coffee doesn't quite fill up the bottom space (to avoid having some overextracted coffee at the bottom). The short, wide dimensions also make it easier to store and lowers the center of balance (good for not knocking it over). Also, it comes with a handy measuring spoon that is of bizarre dimensions (7 grams), but somehow, when level, is the perfect measurement. 1 scoop to one (European) cup of coffee (so 4 for a full press). I'm incredibly happy with the whole ordeal, especially for the price. I'll probably also invest in a larger one for entertaining purposes, since this is only enough for myself or one other person.

I got the 4-cup model. It makes 1 "big cup" of coffee, with a little room for cream, if I'm in the mood. (my big cup is about 2x the size of a standard American coffee cup)

My wife does not drink coffee, so the smaller model was perfect for me. I may purchase a larger model at some point, for entertaining guests.

Pros
-Makes fantastic coffee, if you follow some easy rules: coarse grind (reduce sediment), don't use too little grounds (over-extraction = bitter coffee), grind your own beans (GRIND YOUR OWN BEANS!!!), if not back-to-back... wash between uses (oil buildup = bitter coffee), don't leave extra coffee in the press (it will continue to steep, which is bad)
-Simple to use, simple to clean. Everything comes apart with little hassle
-Dishwasher safe (Though I use it too much to ever let it sit in the dishwasher.)
-Sturdy (The commenter who mentioned busting the bottom out was probably using Hulk strength when pressing, stirring with metal (which creates micro-fractures in the glass), or possibly cleaning with cold water too soon after having the hot coffee in the press. (which is also bad for glass... duh))
-You will experience flavors you never knew coffee had before.

Cons
-More work to clean up than a filter-brew machine (but worth it)
-Glass is breakable, don't drop it or hand it to a 2 year old. (They make unbreakable plastic models, but the oils that buildup to make coffee bitter cling to plastic, and don't cling to glass. It's a chemistry thing, according my Chemical Engineer brother.)
-It has ruined me for other coffee. I used to tolerate the bad office coffee, now I can't stand the smell of it.

This is my first coffee press and I am very pleased with the coffee I can brew with it. It is well worth the price and the quality is very good. Your results will be good as long as you follow the directions and use coarse ground coffee. It is rated as a 4-cup unit with 6 oz. cups, but with the coffee mugs we use here in the midwest it is only a 2 cup unit. So, if you really want a 4 cup unit get the 8 cup press. If you want to try a press for coffee this is an excellent way to begin.

Pros: Great tasting coffee, easy to use, very stylish.

Cons: A bit troublesome to clean by hand.

BEWARE, though! French Presses generate a sludge at the bottom of every cup. It's part of the charm, but increases in volume with a decrease in the quality grind! If you're serious about coffee, spend the extra $$$ and buy a good burr grinder!

Finally, a quality French Press that makes one full mug of coffee. The materials of the 17 oz Bodum Chambord are better than the plastic versions I've seen out there, although it does have a black plastic collar. Once I realized how well the collar worked to keep the coffee from splashing up when pressing, I was sold on it.

I have the 8 oz Chambord that I feel is just too small for a single cup of coffee. Nice for a little pick me up cup in the afternoon.
I also have an orange plastic Bodum 32 oz. which is perfect for 2 people
And a 48 oz black plastic (for 4 people)
When I serve coffee to guests, the large black does well for regular, the smaller orange press is good for decaf. But the overall quality is not great for everyday.

For my daily morning mug, this is it! I can't believe I didn't buy this sooner. It makes my morning ritual a perfect little taste of luxury.
