What Makes this French Press Special?

With the Bodum Chambord french press on your side, brewing a fresh cup of flavorful coffee is possible in a quick and efficient 4-minute time frame – yes, it’s that fast. It’s as simple as adding your grounded coffee, hot water, and pressing down the plunger!

Speaking of pressing, this french press plunger contains a mesh filter that helps extract aromatic oils and subtle flavors from the coffee beans so you’re given a rounded, robust taste in every sip. This aspect alone makes it superior to coffee brewed with paper filters, which end up absorbing the flavors rather than distributing it to your beverage.


Why Should I Buy this French Press?

In addition to the maximum flavor provided to you by the Bodum Chambord french press, you can expect to enjoy other features, such as its stainless steel spiral plate, which stabilizes the filter mesh and ensures no ground coffee makes it to your cup. Plus, the carafe of this press is offered in two fantastic materials – borosilicate glass and recyclable shatterproof material. 

On one hand, the borosilicate glass is strong, ultra light-weight and features great heat-resisting properties. On the other, the recyclable SAN beaker is shatterproof and environmentally friendly. Regardless of the one you go with, you’ll enjoy the fact that they are safe to use in the dishwasher and they won’t even get cloudy!

It provides the ease you want in a coffee-making experience, the technical quality required for top-notch coffee, and durable materials that’ll keep it performing reliably for a long time to come.
