It makes just enough coffee to have a little in the morning and some later during the day OR enough to fully fill up my travel mug.
Since I had never used a French press before I was a little apprehensive about working the plunger, but after reading the directions, everything worked out great! I was able to make coffee in under 10 minutes (first I boiled my water in a tea kettle, and then poured it right into my press). I had thought using a press would take even longer than a conventional coffee maker that drips the coffee, but it was faster! The drip coffee makers take forever to drip the liquid, while the pressed coffee was ready in a few minutes after boiling the water.
This French press is also very easy to store and transport around. (I take it to my boyfriend's house since I don't always finish my coffee in the morning.)
And Bodum is the premier maker of coffee presses for a reason: impeccable quality, the proverbial "stunning good looks," and reasonable price. No, a Bodum is not the cheapest press you can find. It is, however, the best. There's a reason why, when I tried explaining the concept of a French press to my Swiss friend (as surprised as I was that she hadn't seen one before), she suddenly exclaimed, "Oh, you mean a Bodum!"
This particular press is stylish and functional as any in the Bodum line, and thanks to its simple lines and stainless accents, fits into any kitchen (trust me: you'll want it on display). The mechanism works smoothly without the catching and scratching between screen and beaker common with cheap presses.
Screen construction is conscientious as well: though you ought to clean it immediately following use, I know myself: I don't. However, nary a spot of rust ever show up on the screen, and the steel components are highly-polished, so coffee residues are easily removed without scrubbing.Read more ›
Whoever was responsible for specifying the materials must have got a reward for saving a few pennies. In the past, the metal parts were all highly polished stainless steel. The Bistro's external metal seems to consist of a thin layer of chrome over mild steel. OK, I'm only guessing at this combo, but the base metal is definitely steel because all the external metal parts attract a magnet. And no part of the Bodum being replaced attracts the magnet (most commonly available stainless is not ferro-magnetic).
KlinQ.com - the actual supplier - didn't want it returned, and grudgingly sent me a replacement. The Bodum Young that was selected as a replacement is cute, but looks like something someone else returned: the plastic caddy is already scuffed, and the red, rubber overmold has black showing through from the underlying ridgid plastic in one spot.
Most dissapointing of all was that an email request for guidance sent directly to Bodum did not even get a response. So much for their interest in customer satisfaction or quality!
For an otherwise-respectable brand like Bodum to release a cheap Chinese product with such a blatant quality and safety problem is a pretty serious lapse. It's also going to seriously dilute their image of European quality. My wife bought this assuming it was made in Europe; after this mishap we examined the package and found it was made in China. I guess we'll buy the "Chambord" to replace it--it's allegedly still made in France.

I ordered wrong size. Next time I'll pay more attention and order a 64 ounce. This only holds 4 cups of coffee.Published on January 7, 2014 by Lynne Eisler
We've had this coffee press for several years, 3 I'd guess. Always works great. Works best if you grind your own coffee at home, so it's coarse enough. Read morePublished on September 22, 2013 by Lauren M. Walters
