Bodum Brazil 8-Cup French Press Coffee Maker Review

Bodum Brazil 8-Cup French Press Coffee MakerThere are all kinds of coffee makers that you can get. Some are inexpensive and some aren’t. When they think about a French press, most coffee lovers automatically imagine that they’re going to have to spend a lot of money to get a decent one.

That’s not the case. You can get a high quality, top performing press with the Bodum Brazil 8-Cup French Press Coffee Maker that will make a great cup of coffee every single time you use it.

This press is known for its quality design – including the way the seal holds onto the tightness even after repeated use. This is an important feature because loose seals can cause loss of heat and flavor.

When you do want to use it to make your coffee, it’s super easy. All you have to do is select the amount of grounds that you want to put into the press. Never use beans that haven’t been ground in a press.

They’re not made for use with those and you run the risk of damaging the press if you try. Add whatever coffee grounds you’ve selected. Then pour water that’s almost but not quite boiling over the grounds.

Mix it, then wait for between 3-4 minutes or longer if you want really strong coffee. Slowly push the plunger downward. The grounds will be filtered and you’ll be left with nothing but great tasting coffee.

Once you make the coffee, you want to go ahead and enjoy it because coffee that’s exposed to grounds for more than a few minutes will get stronger and more acidic.

This can alter the taste of the coffee and you might find that you don’t like it. The press uses a 3 part stainless steel mesh filter system to make the coffee. This enables the press to be able to effectively extract the oils and flavors from the grounds so that each cup you get is as full bodied as possible.

This press can be used to make enough coffee for one person or it can be used for 3-4 people, depending on your cup size. One of the safety features with this press is the safety lid. It’s designed to stay on and prevent any spills or splashes while you’re operating it.

The carafe is heat resistant for your safety. It’s made of long lasting glass but has a plastic handle and base. These are both BPA free. You can wash this in a dishwasher if you’d prefer. Not only is this press one of the more affordable ones that you can buy, but it has a nice compact design to fit any kitchen style.
