The Coffee Lover's Favorite Method Chambord is a true original – the classic French press coffee maker designed in the fifties. And we still produce it with the same painstaking craftsmanship we used way back when with the original. 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 only difference in the production process since the fifties is our commitment to the highest standards of environmentally correct manufacturing, which is especially important during the chrome plating process. 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 92 and 96 degrees brings out the very best in all types of coffee.
Comments about Bodum Chambord French Press Coffee Maker, Silver, 8 cup, 1 ea:
After visiting Europe a number of times, using these in the hotel rooms and loving the way the coffee tasted, I decided I would buy one. I also live in a small NYC apartment so even a small regular coffee maker takes up too much space.
This fits/stores perfectly in the small apartment and produces amazing tasting coffee. Easy to use and can quickly make a few fresh cups whenever I want them.
The directions say to use coarser ground coffee, but since I no longer have my bean grinder, I have been ordering pre-ground coffee, which is usually pretty finely ground. Doesn't seem to matter, even the finely ground coffee is working fine. Some of the grinds will make their way into the bottom of my cup sometimes, but it doesn't hurt anything, or alter the taste....at least that I can tell.
When I was first ordering I chose the plastic one, but liked the look of the glass one better so I switched before checking out. Just be careful with the glass one when stirring the grounds, if using a metal spoon. I stir very slowly so I don't unintentionally crack the glass, although it does seem pretty sturdy so far.
The one thing I wish this had was measurements on the glass to make it easier to tell how much water I am pouring in vs grounds. That is my only complaint.
All in all, I am happy with this product and with the delicious coffee it produces!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
