Bodum French Press Coffee Maker

Years ago when traveling to England I stayed with some friends and in the morning was introduced to coffee made using a French Press Coffee Maker. It was hands down the best coffee I had ever had!

You might just find that drinking your first cup made with a French Press will not be your last and may just become one of your favorite ways to make coffee.

Although a little more time consuming than using an electric coffee machine, the French Press produces great coffee and it really isn’t that hard to do. The French Press can be used for making several cups of coffee or for just making one great cup for yourself.

What we Liked Most about the Bodum French Press Coffee Maker

French Press Coffee MakerWhat we like about this coffee maker is that it makes the best tasting coffee and it is so easy to use.

Best of all it is easy to clean up (if you do it right after pouring out the coffee)!

Find the best coffee you can afford and grind it fresh at home and you won’t drink your coffee any other way again.

Another way to use the French Press Coffee Maker is for making tea. I don’t have a teapot so often this get’s used if I want to make several cups of tea.

I just use a tea cozy to keep the tea warm until I have finished drinking it.

What we Did Not Like about the Bodum French Press Coffee Maker

We can’t find anything we don’t like about this French press coffee maker. There are a number of complaints online about the glass chipping or breaking but I have to say that I have had mine for over 10 years and it is still in great shape.

How to Use a French Press Coffee Maker

First of all, you will need coarsely ground coffee and hot, not boiling water.

Take the plunger out of the French press and add in one rounded tablespoon or scoop of coffee for every 4-ounce cup into the French Press.

Next, pour hot water into the pot and leave about one inch of space from the top of the French Press.

Stir the mixture and then place the plunger unit on top of the pot. Don’t press down at this point.

You should let the coffee brew for about four or five minutes.

Holding the pot firmly by the handle, apply slight pressure on top of the plunger and push it slowly down into the pot.

Now all you need to do is pour it into your favorite mug and add cream/sugar if you like and enjoy the best cup of coffee ever!

The French Press is easy to clean. You simply take apart the plunger parts and rinse under hot water.

You can leave the pieces on a towel on the counter to dry and then put them back together again, ready for your next cup of coffee.

When it comes to the coffee, buy any type you like.

You can have it ground for you (coarse grind) or you can do it yourself at home using an electric coffee grinder.

To keep the beans fresh, leave them in the refrigerator or freezer and then just take out the amount you need when you go to make your coffee.
