We love to roll out a French press whenever we have company (so much cooler than ho-hum drip coffee). But BODUM’s new design takes our showboatery up a notch. Inspired by Irish designer Eileen Gray, this press combines the brand’s brewing know-how with sleek design.
How it Works
The 12 oz. glass beaker is made of sturdy borosilicate glass that sits inside a decorative stainless steel frame. Top it off with a rubbery, secure-grip handle and dishwasher-safe credentials, and you have one heck of a coffee-table piece. Makes 1.5 cups.
How to Use
Depending on how strong you like your java, pour 2-4 tablespoons of ground coffee into the beaker. Add near-boiling water and let steep for at least two minutes. Press down the plunger to finish the brewing process and pour yourself—and a guest—a steaming cup.
