The only difference in the production process since the fifties is Bodum’s commitment to the highest standards of environmentally correct manufacturing, especially important during the chrome plating process.
The frame and lid, made of stainless steel, undergo several chrome plating processes to obtain a durable shiny surface that will last for many years of intense use.
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 Celsius brings out the very best in all types of coffee. This classic design makes 8 cups of coffee in just 4 minutes.
*All Bodum coffee and tea makers are measured in European cup sizes: 1 Cup = about 4oz
