CoffeeGeek - Bodum Chambord Press Pots - Nathan W's Review

 

This press pot has been my introduction to coffee-making (I was never one for automatic drip machines), and I highly recommend it for anyone who wants an easy way to make small amounts of coffee.

I have found this to be a fail-safe way to make coffee -- it doesn't punish some sloppiness with the water/coffee ground ratio, and can be used with a wide variety of grinds

The screen filter started coming apart slightly after about a year of use, making it somewhat difficult to easily clean it with a sponge

CoffeeGeek - Bodum Chambord Press Pots - Caty Rent's Review

 

This product is great because it's simple and this is the original. French press is all about exposing the true taste of coffee and I feel as though the Bodum Chambord gets the job done effectively. Before this, I used a French Press mug and I like the...

Easy to use, take apart, and clean

The glass can break if not careful. Also, sometimes if the hot water is poured in too fast you can end up with a few grounds in your cup

CoffeeGeek - Bodum Chambord Press Pots - Francis Wa's Review

 

When not drinking a single shot of espresso this has to be the best and simplest brewing method around! It also doubles as a decent milk-frother. Bodum offers several sizes available and many different models the primary difference seems to be in the...

Easy and effective. Always there when I need a quick cup-o

Messy to clean, especially when you don't want to send the grounds down the sink and clog your pipes

CoffeeGeek - Bodum Chambord Press Pots - Chris Chartier's Review

 

What can you say about such a simple product. Bodum is 'the' name in makers of French Press pots. I finally got off the automatic drip coffee maker bandwagon and decided to use the French Press every day. The French Press makes a much richer, bolder,...

Simple, makes great coffee

Annoying to clean

CoffeeGeek - Bodum Chambord Press Pots - Mia Barista's Review

 

This is a gorgeous French Press that has a nice, smooth press, thanks to the glass.

Attractive equipment; delicious coffee; easy to clean

Four-minute brew; keep away from your dishwasher

CoffeeGeek - Bodum Chambord Press Pots - Steve Scaggs's Review

 

the french press delivers a fabulous cup. i also use manual pourover cone, but have not used it since getting the chambord. gold filter in the porcelain cone is close, but not quite the same. i use a hand grinder and grind my beans coarsely. I heat my...

quality product, performs just as expected ; can make 16oz or a full pot (32oz)

had a crimp in original screen mesh that let grounds by on first use. i was able to fix crimp and have had not problems at all. bodum sent me a new screen free of charge when i called to inquire about it-great customer service

CoffeeGeek - Bodum Chambord Press Pots - Matt Flickinger's Review

 

This press pot delivers a fantastic coffee drink possibly perfect and not bitter if done right with good beans, that is how coffee should be, but can be improved, though not much in cup quality. If possible try to buy the swiss gold filter for easy...

Gives you a rich and delicious cup with easy work ; Allows you to control the variable in temperature and brew time, as well as grind size ; Nice looking, as well a stylish ; Can make other infusions, like loose leaf tea, froth milk, or almost anything...

Metal filter isn't great ; Glass can break ; Cheaper versions of slightly less appealing look, though same quality, from same company ; A little annoying to clean

CoffeeGeek - Bodum Chambord Press Pots - Donald Blum's Review

 

Because of the ease in which presspot coffee is made, this is the type of coffee I drink most often. A vac pot is better, but it may not make smaller amounts as well as it does full capacity and doesn't clean up as quickly and easily as a presspot if...

This is the easiest way to make quality coffee as long as you have a quality grinder. It's also the least expensive because of the low initial cost (can be <$20; see below), and there are no filters to throw away. A presspot makes fewer cups almost...

Don't drink it to the last drop. The last third of a cup starts to taste cloudy. The end of the cup is bitter sludge

CoffeeGeek - Bodum Chambord Press Pots - Al Raden's Review

 

I bought the 3 cup (really one mug) model to use in my office. I primarily drink espresso at home, and refused to drink the stuff they serve here at work. With the Bodum, I'm able to brew a great cup of coffee at my desk. A microwave can be used to...

Inexpensive, easy to use, great coffee

Can't think of any
