The Bodum Young French Press Coffee Maker was designed to be both contemporary and practical. The Bodum Young Press features a hardy santoprene frame and clear polycarbonate windows. These two outer layers shelter the inner glass beaker and effectively prevent cracks or breakage. This layer system also helps insulate the beaker to keep coffee hot longer. The outer layer is designed to stay cool so that the Bodum Young Press can be placed on most surfaces without worrying about the heat damaging it. This French press is durable enough for use in the office, at home or even when you're out on outdoor adventures. This French Press Coffee Maker has a 34 ounce capacity, and produces up to 8 cups of coffee. The glass beaker is dishwasher safe. Bodum item number 10096-364US4.
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, by coincidence, produced as well. Bodum combined the skills of these Normandy craftsmen with modern production, and the price became affordable to the many people who loved the taste of the coffee brewed in this unique coffee maker, later known as the French press coffee brewer. Thanks to Bodum and thanks to the increasing need for better coffee, the French press coffee maker became one of the most popular coffeemakers in the world. The design has not changed a bit from the original drawings, and we still make the Chambord with the same painstaking care and knowledge we learned from those proud craftsmen in windy Normandy.
When coarsely ground coffee beans meet clean hot water in the Bodum Chambord, excellent taste doesn't get any easier. Use freshly roasted coffee beans and grind them coarsely just before each brew. Always start with cold water, and it's best to soften and filter your water to remove chlorine and other unwanted elements before boiling. That perfect, just off the boil, temperature brings that optimal extraction power for the essential oils in the beans to develop their full flavor profile in just 4 minutes. Over-extracting coffee beans leads to a bitter and astringent taste because too many acids get released. After 4 minutes, a simple press on the plunger locks the grinds at the bottom of the glass and stops the brewing process. Now you're ready to pour and enjoy the delicious brew. You don't even have to discard the grounds until after you've enjoyed all of your freshly brewed coffee.
