Product Description

Color: Black | Product Packaging: Standard Packaging

The Brazil French Press coffeemaker, designed in the early 80's, was our first coffeemaker and quickly became a symbol of what Bodum stands for. Attractive and functional design at an affordable price. The Brazil has a durable, heat-resistant borosilicate glass beaker and a plastic 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 was my first French press. I have always enjoyed this type of coffee, particular after dinner. However, I was attracted to the plastic framework surrounding the carafe, as I can be clumsy at times.

This press has worked just as well as the more expensive, more traditional looking French press pots. I set the coarsest setting on my Braun grinder, and no grounds get through the screen. It is just perfect. I haven't ever run my press through the dishwasher, it isn't necessary with the easy cleaning with this one. I just put hot soapy water in the carafe, up-and-down a few times with the plunger and it's all ready to use again. I have heeded the warning not to stir with a metal implement; I use a wooden spoon.

I would heartily recommend this model of Bodum for someone who would like to experience French press coffee at home, inexpensively.

Let's face it, dumping coffee grounds into a bucket of hot water is nothing new. The Bodum Press is a refinement of the cowboy coffee brewing method, minus the campfire & straining it thru a sock. In My world, there is no such thing as "too Strong" for coffee. There IS, however, too bitter & too acidy. The press does what perking, dripping and steaming ground coffee cannot do: produce a stout, yet smooth cup of coffee - just like the stuff made around decades of my campfires.

Model Brazil, made in Denmark by a Swiss Company & called a French Press. No wonder the confusion over exactly how many cups this actually makes. The Euro-instructions for the press say 4 oz. per cup, but even my fine Bavarian China cups (from when I lived in Munich) are 6 ounces.

Just look at it this way: It holds 32 ounces of water.

The instructions on your roast coffee container usually say to use 1 TBSP per 6 ounces of water (NOT 4 ounces & NOT 8 ounces). Again, in MY world, 32 ozs. makes about 2 cups of coffee.

I toss in 6 or more scoops of ground coffee, pour in hot water & wait the obligatory 4 minutes. The result is a smooth coffee that you can drink by the quart without that nasty heartburn/reflux side effect.

It's ideal for work, where the office sissies are afraid of offending anyone with REAL coffee, so they make it weak. I simply step up to the hot water spigot & take the Press to my desk.

Now, you, too, can have coffee the way you like it at work without having to cover up someone's botched brew with that foo-foo Vanilla, Hazelnut, Irish Cream or other phoney-flavored faux creamers.

Cleanup? Swirl around some soapy water, & dump the grounds down the sink - just be sure to have the water blasting & the garbage disposal running, so as to not plug up the sink trap.

Even if you already have the coffee-brewing apparatus of your dreams, buy the Bodum 32 oz. model. You won't be disappointed.

You don't need a high dollar french press to make great coffee if you do it the right way (with course grounds). This french press is all you need for the right price.

Before you go out and spend a couple hundred bucks on a new Keurig, do yourself a favor and try this sub $20 Bodum French Press paired with a quality ceramic burr grinder like this one and impress your friends with the perfect cup of coffee.

HOW TO: Make a Perfect Cup of Coffee with this Cheap French Press

TOOLS:
Killer Coffee Beans
Hot Water
Kitchen Scale
Ceramic Burr Grinder
Bodum French Press
The Ability to Count

Step 1: Measure out 60g of your favorite coffee beans and grind to a coarse grind (about 60-70 turns with the Morning Grind Grinder on coarse setting). Place into Bodum 8 Cup French Press.

Step 2: Heat your water to 200 degrees by bringing it to a boil and removing from heat for 60 seconds.

Step 3: Pour in just enough water to cover the grounds. Then wait 30 seconds.

Step 4: Stir then add the rest of the water (32oz total).

When my old, tired, beat up Bodum finally fell apart, I didn't run out and replace it. Like a young widow whose beloved but aged spouse bit the dust, I giddily went looking for the coffeepot equivalent of a youthful Brazilian polo player. And I got what I deserved. Keurig's little pod thingies, which traded instant gratification for passion, Melitta's endless glacierlike efforts to get on with it, and a haze of automatic coffee maker one night stands. Or one morning stands, to be accurate.

So I'm back to Bodum. Okay, there is no clock and there are no attachments, no gizmos, no bells and whistles, no fancy dials or lights. And no automatic programmer so the coffee isn't ready when I reach the kitchen. So what. Some things are worth waiting for, and I can handle the six minutes delay (two waiting for water to boil, four for boiling water and ground coffee to blend together in perfect union). Then I am just one little squeze of the plunger away from bliss...that irresistably wonderful first cup of coffee.

Somehow the Bodum even turns second rate supermarket coffee into elixir. And really good freshly ground beans make a drink that is sheer joy. There is magic in the Bodum. Coffee gives up all of its flavor, but none of its acidity. It's so gentle, you can fall asleep while drinking a cup. Bodum brewed coffee won't jangle your nerves or your stomach. It just soothes and comforts.

Plus if you repeat the name with the right cadence (Bodum. Bodum. BodumBodumBodumBodum) it sounds just like the theme from Jaws. Could you ask for better than that?
