CHAMBORD is a true original - the classic French press coffee maker designed in the fifties. And Bodum still produce it with the same painstaking craftsmanship that was used way back when with the original was made. The frame and lid, made of steel, has a durable shiny copper surface that will last for many years of intense use. The only difference in the production process since the fifties is Bodum's commitment to the highest standards of environmentally correct manufacturing. 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. The coffee maker produces up to 8 cup/1.0l/34 oz and is 24.5cm/9.6in high. It is dishwasher safe.
