Most coffee roasters and tea buyers recommend using a coffee or tea press to enjoy the beverages at their best, but the devices have typically offered one major disadvantage--the brewed coffee or tea cooled quickly within the glass carafe. The Bodum Columbia thermal press overcomes this shortcoming with its double-walled stainless-steel construction, which insulates hot coffee or tea to keep it warm for up to two hours. The end result is a rich, flavorful beverage with perfectly extracted flavors and aromas.

To use the Columbia press for coffee, grind fresh beans to a coarse consistency, add 2 tablespoons of coffee for every 6 ounces of water, then add hot water and brew for four to five minutes before plunging the press. Tea brews in the same manner, but with whole tea leaves instead. The press holds up to 48 ounces of liquid--enough for 12 small cups of coffee (4 ounces each)--and features Bodum's patented safety lid to keep the contents from spilling. For best results, users should dedicate the press to brewing one beverage only, as coffee and tea flavors tend to cross over when brewed separately in the same vessel. The Columbia coffee and tea press is dishwasher-safe. --Rivers Janssen

I've used this press daily for a number of years now. It is a great way to make the absolute best coffee every morning. I am convinced that there is no better way to make the best coffee. My wife and I also take it with us when we travel, so that we can continue to have our great coffee in the morning while we are traveling. After all these years and countless travel trips, it's a bit dented and banged up, but it still makes great coffee every morning.

I have noticed that a number of reviewers have mentioned that the coffee doesn't remain as hot as they would like. Here's how I get around that problem.

First of all, I don't think any french press design is really suited to keeping coffee hot for a long time. If you want that then perhaps you should stay with a Mr. Coffee or a percolator.

That being said, I do like to have my coffee hot for up to an hour each morning. I purchased the 8-cup Bodum and it produces just enough coffee for my wife and I to have a large mug of coffee, with enough left over for a warmup for each of us. If we're wanting more coffee after this, then we simply brew a 2nd pot. It's so easy to use the Bodum that it's not a bother to brew a 2nd pot on these days. So, we're not trying to keep hot coffee for a couple of hours in the morning. No french press can do that well.

When I want to make coffee in the morning, the first thing I do is fill the Bodum pot with hot tap water to warm it up a bit. Then I begin heating the water that will be used on the freshly ground coffee beans. When the water is ready for pouring over the grounds I empty the warm tap water, place my freshly ground coffee in the Bodum pot, then pour the near-boiling water over the grounds and let it set for 4 minutes.

Seems pricey but you'll quickly forget about the $. It's the very best coffee accessory I've ever purchased. The filter part of the french press is perfect. Makes a suction sound as you press it down because the fit is so precise. Virtually no coffee grounds make their way into your cup. And why didn't someone think before of making an insulated french press? In use every day at our house.

Highly recommended. I already owned the 12 oz. pot and loved it. Got this slightly larger pot shipped to my daughter's home -- in the ready for our holiday visit. I quickly made my first pot but noticed an off taste in the coffee. I thought it must be her water as that was the only change from my own home --- beans, grinder, pot all the same. So, I washed everything again and made another pot. Still had the off taste. I could smell whatever was causing the off taste but didn't know what it was. Finally I identified it as coming from the the seal on the filter. So, I made sure the filter remained above the water line while the coffee was brewing. No off taste after that!

French Press coffee has one downside, if you do not serve the whole pot when it is first made then it tends to be coolish. This pot can be a help. It is not perfect but it keeps the coffee warm-hot for awhile. I fill it full of hot tap water before I make the coffee in it and then the coffee stays warm longer. I think it is the best press on the market at this price.
The other thing to be aware of is that when these coffee pots are rated for 10-12 cups that they are something less. The cups they are talking about are four ounce cups. These coffee pots make 4 regular cups of coffee and no more. PS: This is a good way to cut your coffee shop bill.

This coffee pot is the best.

My husband is a coffee lover and has brewed coffee all the different ways possible, and by far, he claims this is the best. I, myself, find the coffee the best tasting that I have ever tasted. Out of the French presses, this is the best design since it is made out of metal whereas the glass versions do not last very long and end up breaking. Also, the filter, being not only very environmentally friendly, is constructed in one piece. The other French presses have filters made in two parts, and that can be a bit of a pain when grinds get caught and are hard to clean.

It is ideal that the pot is thermal. There's no need to reheat.

I give it an A+.

ADDENDUM: and a special NB for latex allergy sufferers: (Oct. 28, 2007)

The strainer for this coffee pot has rubber around its edges, which break down after a couple of years, making the coffee taste gnarly, and for those that are allergic to latex, a fine latex tea. I'd recommend replacing the strainer, and for those with latex allergies, I wouldn't recommend this pot.

I've been using the 8-cup Columbia French Press since it was introduced. I prefer French Press coffee to the other brewing methods but one thing kept me from using my traditional glass Bodum press pot, and that was the multi-piece filter. That filter never failed to trap coffee grounds in between the layers and I was constantly taking it apart for cleaning, and in no time at all the mesh screen started to fray around the edges.

That was then, but the Columbia is now. My favorite feature in this new design is the one-piece filter. Yes, ONE PIECE! No more unscrewing the three layers for washing. This improvement was obviously needed and I wish they had done it much sooner.

Regarding the stainless steel construction, it is useful for keeping the water hot during the 4-minute brewing time, but don't think of it as a carafe that you can just leave the coffee in. If you do, it will keep extracting the coffee from the grounds and you'll wind up with an over-extracted, bitter brew. For me, the real advantage of the stainless steel is that I'm not going to break it. The traditional Bodum borosilicate glass is very easy to break.

And so, I highly recommend the Bodum Columbia press pot. And if Bodum ever creates a one-piece filter for their glass French presses (like the one SwissGold used to make), that will be another great Bodum achievement.

Enjoy the Columbia!
