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 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 8-cup coffeemaker is (1.0 l, 34oz.) in size and is also available in 3-cup (0.35 l, 12 oz) size model.

I never wrote reviews for products before. I am really disappointed in this coffee press that lasted 4 months. The coffee strainer broke off from the rod, then all the metal pieces separated. The filter stopped working completely about 2 months in; I would get some ground coffee in my cup. If you plan on buying a new press every 4-6 months, then this one works. I am surprised by all the positive reviews, but I will go for something that lasts longer, more expensive.

So, like most of you who bought this product, I am also a coffee lover. I have been thinking about buying a french press since a while but was not sure about how much difference exists between coffee made with a french press and a brewing machine. finally I just went ahead with the purchase reading so many positive reviews about the product. Here's what I think about the product :

The strainer/filter does not work well. It worked decently the first couple of times and then i have never had a press without grounds in the coffee.. in all I must have used the press say about 7-8 times in total... I usually dont bother about writing reviews (i am working on changing that). But today when i used the press i felt that nearly half the grounds got un filtered..

Yes i know exactly how to use the press for people who might be thinking I am doing something incorrectly and hence I am seeing grounds in the coffee..

i literary take good 5-10 seconds to push the filter down to the bottom for a half filled jar (which equals around 16 oz = 1 cup for me)and i still cannot manage to filter out all the grounds...

the cleaning process is tricky as well as you wouldn't wanna touch the filter too much as there is a possibility of bending the edges of the aluminium filter which will render the filter useless.

I will definitely not recommend this product unless you are willing to pay $10 for a replacement filter every now and then and or would not mind using a separate strainer on the side.

I was a barista for several years. Through tastings with different types of coffee grinding settings ("french press" is a coarsely-ground coffee), the french press has always been my favorite. Similar to wine, coffee beans (actually, coffee berries) take on the natural flavors of its region. Those flavors really shine with a french press, making french press coffee delightful to pair with food.

If you are debating the merits of a French press vs. Keurig or your everyday filtered coffee maker, allow me to persuade you that the French press is best for taste and for saving money. Both the Keurig and a typical coffee maker both require wasteful and expensive accessories (the individual K-cups, filters); whereas, the French press doesn't need anything extra.

I've heard complaints from home coffee drinkers over the years that French presses are difficult to clean. I have not experienced that. I just toss it in the dish washer, maybe taking it apart every once in a while. I don't think it's necessary to take apart each piece and deep clean every day.

The French press is an easy to use coffee maker: you just add boiling water to your ground beans (ideally, freshly ground and please don't put your ground coffee in the freezer!), wait between 3-5 minutes depending on how you like your coffee, plunge, and drink! This may not as easy as pressing a button, or setting a timer that will have your coffee ready for you in the morning, but the quality and saved money more than make up for the mild inconvenience.

I have a Bodum brand coffee maker because it's one of the least expensive options. It's worked well for over three years!

Better tasting coffee, less wasteful and expensive, and easy to use. Other coffee makers might be more trendy these days, but the French press is a classic.

The glass on this is extremely cheap and shatters easily -- mine lasted about a month. I've used other French presses that reinforce the glass carafe with intelligent placement of metal and plastic; such is not the case with this one. I recommend getting the shatterproof-labeled models, or even the generic one at IKEA. I will not be buying this again.

This made a great cup of coffee.... once. I washed it after the first use and was very careful because I could tell the glass was flimsy and other reviews had said it was likely to break. After washing and drying, I very gently placed the plunger against the rim and before I even applied any pressure, the glass cracked and broke into 4 pieces. I would love to return this product as defective but the box and packaging was discarded before the break occurred, so now I am stuck with nearly $30 worth of broken glass and useless plastic.

Bodum decided to change the design since 2010. The previous one was great - we bought it in December 2010 and used it several times a day for a year before it started to leak. I ordered another one this year (Jan 2012) and noticed that it had changed quite a bit. The glass was no longer shatter-proof and the filter parts were more complex (from one piece to three pieces) and harder to clean. This morning the glass shattered after I poured boiling water into it. We've only had it for a month.

Do not buy.
