From the manufacturer
Bodum Chambord French Press
Chambord is a true original. The iconic design, now synonymous with the Bodum name, dates back to the 1950s and manufactured in our own Bodum factory in Tondela, Portugal.
Bodum Chambord French Press Coffee Maker
Chambord is a true original – the classic French press coffee maker designed in the fifties. To this day we continue to produce the Chambord with the same artisan craftsmanship of yesteryear, but with a focus on environmentally responsible manufacturing in our Bodum owned factory in Portugal. The frame and lid, made of steel, undergo several chrome plating processes to obtain a durable shiny surface that will last for many years of intense use. The spare glass beaker is made of heat resistant Borosilicate glass. The black Chambord Polypropylene handle comes in a matte finish that not only gives a comfortable grip while serving but adds to the classic quality of the design. The French press system has always been the simplest and ultimate way of brewing an excellent cup of coffee. Using fresh coarse ground beans with water between 195-205 degrees Fahrenheit (92-96 degrees Celsius) brings out the very best in all types of coffee.
Step 1- Coffee
For each 1.25-deciliter/4-ounce cup, put 1 rounded tablespoon or 1 Bodum scoop of coarse-ground coffee into the pot.
Use only coarse ground coffee. Fine grind can clog the filter and create high pressure.
Step 2- Water
Pour hot (not boiling) water into the pot. Leave a minimum of 2.5 centimeters/1 inch of space at the top. Stir the brew with a plastic spoon.
Metal spoons can scratch or chip the glass beaker and cause breakage.
Step 3- Press
Place the plunger unit on top of the pot. Turn lid to close off the pour spout opening. Do not press down. Let the coffee brew for at least 4 minutes. Hold the pot handle firmly, with the spout turned away from you, then using just the weight of your hand, apply slight pressure on top of the knob to lower the plunger straight down into the pot. Lowering the plunger slowly with minimal pressure produces best results.
Step 4- Enjoy!
Turn the lid to open the pour spout and then pour coffee.
Unscrew the filter assembly and clean the plunger unit after each use. All parts are dishwasher-safe.
3- Part Stainless Steel Filter
The spiral plate keeps the filter mesh in place and makes sure that water goes through but no ground coffee. The flexible spiral provides a universal fit taking into account the manufacturing tolerances of glass jugs.
The filter mesh is a key component to the Bodum Coffee Makers. It separates the ground coffee beans from the water after the brewing has stopped.
The cross plate holds the mesh in place together with the spiral plate.

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.

I'd heard that all “French Presses” deposit a very small amount of coffee grounds in your coffee. Everyone said it was a small trade-off for the best cup of coffee you can easily make at home. One even said those grounds were a "badge of honor."
Well, I've been using my Bodum for weeks now and am yet to notice a single coffee ground in my coffee. Perhaps the plunger's filter mesh will deform slightly, someday, if I drop it on the floor? For now, though, the edges of plunger perfectly match up with the glass.
It really is the best coffee I've ever had. I love this thing.
My advice: buy good coffee. Know your beans, and make sure it's ground very coarse (specifically for a French Press). Find a local roaster and buy it direct.
Now, the caveat: this thing does not provide "four cups" in the American sense of the word "cup". It holds about 16 ounces. That's two cups. I believe they call this a four-cup press because it holds four demitasse, which is much closer to a half-cup.
If you like a big cup of coffee in the morning, or are filling up an insulated travel mug, then this Bodun will make enough for just one person at a time. Again, sixteen ounces. It's approximately one Starbucks Grande or a little more than one Dunkin’ Donuts medium.
So I made the break and went 100% press and never looked back. The coffee is better and a little extra cleanup day to day over the horrors that lay inside the guts of a drip machine made it no contest.
But I needed a bigger press and this was one of only a couple from Bodum that fit the bill in being able to fill my carafe and get a cup out right now.
Unfortunately after several months use I have discovered it has a major design flaw that has really bummed me out on this purchase. Namely the handle. The handle is designed to not need screws or rivets as it pops together and is held together by tension of the metal cage that holds the glass chamber. Over time it seems something has warped and it keep swinging loose at the bottom which can be a bit scary as it ONLY does it when its full of boiling hot water!! Had this problem surfaced earlier I would have returned it and looked at a different model or brand. It is sad as it really fits my needs and works in all other ways exactly as I want it and it makes great coffee but this makes it feel like kind of a chintzy item. It's a real shame.
This was the best Christmas present I got this holiday.
I usually only drink coffee at work as it was too much work to make coffee for myself at home on the weekends as no one else drinks coffee except me. This coffee maker makes great coffee (although I am comparing to drip coffee maker coffee) and is pretty easy to make. It does take some trial and error to find the right combination of scoops of coffee to cups of water. You need to make sure that you are using the correct grind of coffee or you will have undrinkable coffee.
The press works well and keeps the grounds out of the finished brewed coffee.
The glass carafe needs some care to avoid damage. No problems for me yet but other reviews report some issues with the carafe.
I think the cup size is a bit misleading as you won't get 8 usual sized cups of coffee out of a full carafe.
So, think quality vs quantity in this case....
Overall, happy with my gift.
