Bodum’s French press system transforms coarsely ground coffee and hot water into a full-bodied,rich-tasting coffee. It is coffee in its purest form as there is no paper filter to absorb the natural oils in coffee. The Eileen by Bodum features contemporary styling inspired by the great Irish designer Eileen Gray and the cafes and bistros of her adopted city of Paris. The frame and lid are made from durable stainless steel which has undergone several chrome-plating processes for a durable, shiny surface to withstand many years of use. The polypropylene handle gives a comfortable grip while serving. With no paper filters or plastic capsules required. The French press method is more environmentally friendly than many coffee-brewing methods. It is easy to use and clean. The procedure is to place your coffee in the carafe, add hot water and insert the plunger. Brew for 4 minutes and then slowly lower the plunger to extract the coffee and contain the grounds in the bottom. Voila - pour your delicious cup of coffee! The non-stain, heat-resistant carafe made of borosilicate glass will not affect the natural flavor of your coffee.
*The cup measurements are in European cup sizes: 1 cup = about 4 ounces
