Bodum® Chambord Double Wall Insulated 8-Cup Coffee Press

October 14, 2008

Can you smell that? hmm…Morning coffee is wonderful, but French Press Coffee is fantastic. The French Press above probably looks complicated, but the process is actually quite simple and so worth it. It’s super easy to use: I throw in some of my favorite fresh roasted coffee beans into the grinder as I heat filtered, cold water over the stove. As soon as the water starts boiling, I pour the coffee grinds into the bottom of the press and pour the hot water over it and then cover it with the lid but do not press yet. After three minutes or so I take a plastic spoon and stir the coffee, and then press it gently until the coffee is fully pressed. Ta-da! Pour your coffee into your favorite Halloween pumpkin mug (it was on sale!) and add cream and sugar as needed. It is by far the best coffee I have ever tasted, and if you splurge on a nicer grinder, like the Breville® Conical Burr Grinder for $99.99, you can choose the setting for how fine you want the coffee grinds as well as how strong you want your coffee. They recommend a coarser grind for French press coffee. So why waste your precious morning wake-up with a cheap coffee maker? Life is too short. You can buy both the grinder and the press through Bed Bath and Beyond. The French Press that is shown above is $79.99. We have both and couldn’t be 🙂 ier. Plus-side is that the entire thing is machine-washable, clean up is nada! They also offer cheaper presses if you don’t want to go all out.
