Chambord's French Coffee Press is not only beautiful to look at, it makes wonderful coffee. If you have never tried french pressed coffee, you are missing something so deep and so flavorful. Chambord's French Coffee Press strainer is highly efficient at keeping the grounds out of your coffee. Easy to clean and easy to use.

I have this one as well as the personal press at home! This is great to make a few cups of coffee for you and your friends. :) It keeps the grounds out of your coffee, I just recommend that you don't use a fine ground, which you're probably not supposed to anyway.

I literally am dying for one of these. I hate the coffee we have at my job and figured this would be a life saver to have at my desk.

I put this on my wedding registry for myself. My fiancee loved it so much he stole it and took it to the office.

Everything about this coffee maker met or exceeded my expectations. (With one caveat, at the end of the review.)

I'd heard that all “French Presses” deposit a very small amount of coffee grounds in your coffee. Everyone said it was a small trade-off for the best cup of coffee you can easily make at home. One even said those grounds were a "badge of honor."

Well, I've been using my Bodum for weeks now and am yet to notice a single coffee ground in my coffee. Perhaps the plunger's filter mesh will deform slightly, someday, if I drop it on the floor? For now, though, the edges of plunger perfectly match up with the glass.

It really is the best coffee I've ever had. I love this thing.

My advice: buy good coffee. Know your beans, and make sure it's ground very coarse (specifically for a French Press). Find a local roaster and buy it direct.

Now, the caveat: this thing does not provide "four cups" in the American sense of the word "cup". It holds about 16 ounces. That's two cups. I believe they call this a four-cup press because it holds four demitasse, which is much closer to a half-cup.

If you like a big cup of coffee in the morning, or are filling up an insulated travel mug, then this Bodun will make enough for just one person at a time. Again, sixteen ounces. It's approximately one Starbucks Grande or a little more than one Dunkin’ Donuts medium.
