When we’re out meeting people and serving coffee at events, we often ask folks how they brew their coffee at home. Self-professed coffee lovers who drink specialty coffee at home often say they love their French Press.

For over 70 years the Bodum family has been creating exceptional drinkware for coffee and tea.

The Scandinavian design of their Chambord French Press is easily one of the most recognizable home coffee brewing tools in the world. First crafted in the 1950’s, the design has changed little other than to incorporate new technologies to ensure environmental soundness in production.

The simple design relies on replaceable parts, so years of use can be had by keeping them clean and beautiful with a few simple daily steps. All of our cafes use these in their daily operations and we are able to do so thanks to the low maintenance and ease of cleaning.

The thin mesh screen allows the brewed liquor to be separated from the grounds when they are done, and the simple parts can be disassembled for cleaning in seconds.

MAINTENANCE

Caring for your Bodum Chambord is as easy as unscrewing the mesh screen assembly from the stem and rinsing thoroughly then carefully using a soft cloth or sponge to clean out the interior of the glass pot.

Though all components are dishwasher safe- we recommend gently cleaning them by hand.

If you are a daily coffee drinker, we recommend soaking the components once a week in a solution of baking soda and hot water before a thorough rinse.

FRENCH PRESS TIPS

#1

This is a very portable coffee maker. With few moving parts and simple operation, it is easy to take with you on the road so that you still get the coffee you love made right. If you travel frequently the French Press should have a home on your packing list and in your luggage.

#2

French Press produces a lightly filtered, heavy-bodied brew very similar to what coffee professionals brew and cup (taste and evaluate) in the lab. Bringing out the low end of the coffee’s profile by extracting most of the oils and sugars makes the French Press a great brewer for naturally lighter-bodied coffees such as washed Central American single-origins.
